A workplace that adapts to life

If you expect your employees to show high levels of commitment and deliver peak performance, you also need to offer them something in return. At Helvetia we attach great importance to ensuring that our employees can combine their work and personal lives harmoniously. Because working for Helvetia means having the scope to shape your own life. Or, as we also like to say: WorkReallySmart@helvetia

Flexible working

Work in the way that suits you best. Options such as flexible working hours, job sharing, temporary reductions in working hours, 80% employment, unpaid leave and flexible retirement help us respond to differing needs. With FlexOffice we can also offer our employees the option of working in different locations or at different times via mobile office or working from home. Our goal is that people should work at least 30% of their hours on average flexibly, while on the move or from home.

Work and family

We like to relieve our customers of their worries. And flexible working hours and childcare services mean Helvetia employees also have one less thing to worry about.

Subsidized childcare places are available in:

We make it easier for you to return to work after taking family-friendly maternity or paternity leave. If you continue to work for Helvetia, we also grant 6 six further weeks of maternity leave. Parents of older children also benefit from various fun holiday activities for children at our head offices.

Health management

Our health is our most valuable asset. For this reason, we have been running our health management scheme "fit@Helvetia" for more than 15 years. For employees, this means on the one hand a health-promoting environment and on the other hand a wide range of activities along with training and development courses. In recognition of this, the Swiss quality label for successful company health management has awarded Helvetia its "Friendly Work Space" label.

Staff advice

If ever anything is not quite "simple. clear. helvetia", employees have a number of contact points they can turn to. As well as seeking advice from Human Resources and putting their concerns to the staff committee (PEKO), they also have the option of consulting an external advisor to discuss personal or financial issues in a neutral setting.

Corporate events

At Helvetia, convenience, transparency and fairness are values that are also practised within the company. To ensure that employees always know what's going on, we regularly organize events to exchange information and ideas. These range from company parties to management conferences. As well as providing an opportunity to get to know colleagues and teams better, celebrating together also gives us a chance to thank staff in person for their great performance and enthusiastic efforts.

Additional benefits

Helvetia staff are well looked after. Not only because of the generous bonuses they receive for long service, marriage, registration of a partnership or the birth of a child, but also because of the many additional attractive benefits they enjoy:

  • Preferential terms and discounts on insurance products and mortgages
  • Commission payments for brokering insurance policies and mortgages
  • Preferential terms and discounts with cooperation partners (health insurance and banking transactions)
  • Attractive share ownership programmes for employees
  • Subsidies for the use of public transport
  • Annual purchase of Reka cheques (Swiss Travel Fund vouchers) at reduced rates
  • Generous bonuses for introducing new employees
  • Attractive discounts on our insurance products for cross-border commuters from Germany
