As an insurance company we know only too well that life doesn’t always go perfectly smoothly. Options such as flexible working hours, mobile/home office, job sharing, temporary reductions in working hours, 80% employment, unpaid leave and flexible retirement help us respond to differing needs.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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:
