We place great emphasis on regular opportunities for information and exchanging ideas. These range from employee events through to the management conference.
Our employees have various points of contact should they need to ask questions or want advice. Human Resources is there to help. The Staff Council (PEKO) represents the concerns of employees. The offering is rounded off by an external advisor with whom neutral personal matters such as financial issues can be discussed.
Helvetia places great emphasis on the compatibility of work and personal life. As a family-friendly employer, Helvetia boasts flexible working hours and part-time models, as well as the possibility of home office work. To ensure our employees can take the opportunity to further their careers, we offer subsidised childcare places at the two head offices in Basel (Kinderkrippe Familea), St. Gallen (Kinderkrippe Triangel and Löwenzahn) and in Zurich Altstetten (Kindergrippe pop e poppa Chinderburg). Furthermore, Helvetia grants its employees six additional weeks of maternity leave where the employment relationship is to continue. Male employees can benefit from five days of paternity leave. In addition, we have various offerings for the school holidays at the head offices.
