Helvetia Insurance has been awarded the label "Friendly Work Space" by Health Promotion Switzerland. Companies that design their work procedures and structures in a health-promoting manner and offer employees the best possible framework conditions receive this distinction.

Helvetia is committed to work processes that promote health and good working conditions. For this commitment, it has received the "Friendly Work Space" label.

In the summer of 2017, Helvetia Insurance was honoured as a "Friendly Work Space". The organisation Health Promotion Switzerland awards this label to companies that systematically implement corporate health management, that is to say, who design their work processes and structures in a health-promoting manner and are therefore committed to good work conditions for their employees.

Creating a pleasant working environment

To receive the label, companies must develop and fulfil specified quality criteria – and there is a whole catalogue of them to be implemented. External evaluators check whether the standards are met.

Melanie Manser, responsible for corporate health management at Helvetia, is working hard towards fulfilling the criteria. So of course she is happy about receiving the quality label: "We want to create a working environment for our employees where work is fun and all employees can develop their full potential. This label shows we are on the right path."

Employees benefit across the country

Currently, 71 organisations in Switzerland have been successfully evaluated and awarded the label "Friendly Work Space". Over 220,000 employees benefit from optimised and health-promoting working conditions.
