SFS wins 2nd place in the 2021 Swiss Employer Award
News – November 19, 2021
As in past years, SFS once again scored a place on the winners’ podium in the Large Companies category at the Swiss Employer Award. The entire organization is extremely thrilled about this strong result.
Switzerland’s largest employee survey
The Swiss Employer Award (Swiss Arbeitgeber Award) is the largest employee survey conducted in Switzerland and has been naming the best employers in Switzerland and the Principality of Liechtenstein for 21 years now. A total of 165 businesses and more than 46,000 employees participated in this year’s survey. Apart from standard topics like work/life balance, customer focus, employee engagement and employee promotion, the survey focused on issues like digitalization, agility and the handling of the pandemic.
2nd place in the Large Companies category
SFS already impressively succeeded in winning 1st place in 2019 and this year’s 2nd-place ranking marks the fourth time in a row that the Group has secured itself a place on the winner’s podium in the Large Companies category (1000 or more employees) in the years it has participated. The Group withdrew from the competition last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic while simultaneously preparing to incorporate other parts of the company into the survey.
2021 is the first year in which all divisions with employees in Switzerland took part in the survey and more than 6,700 SFS Group employees around the world participated all in all. Not only the above-average response rate but also the frequent use of the comment function at the end of the survey were testimony to the fact that SFS embraces a culture of feedback and has highly engaged employees. The more than 1,200 suggestions help boost SFS’s attractiveness as an employer even further.
Engagement as a basis for a high level of competitiveness
Company management views this encouraging result on employee satisfaction as vital feedback and a sign of appreciation and would like to thank each and every employee for their participation, their daily commitment and their loyalty. They are the strong foundation upon which SFS’s high level of competitiveness is built. Not only do the results of this survey reflect employees’ opinion of the company, but they provide valuable insights on the company’s further development − true to our value proposition “Inventing success together”
