Our work environment
With SWISS as an employer, you can expect that decisive ‘something more’ when it comes to appeal.
If detail creates a love for detail, if quality engenders high-quality hospitality, nationality leads to internationalism, change brings about a richness of variety, a job becomes an experience, from SWISS comes a world full of inspiration.
Aviation has always fascinated everyone, young and old, all around the globe, and as a Swiss airline company, SWISS is one of the world’s leading airlines. And it is very easy to explain who we have to thank for this: our more than 9,000 employees with their special passion for flying. We do a great deal to give our employees outstanding perspectives and we value every personal contribution however small it may be.
Our strength lies in the exceptional service we offer on a person-to-person basis, this is what makes each flight a true air travel experience, worldwide. The SWISS corporate culture is the foundation that underpins our thoughts and actions.
It is the shared pursuit of continually improving and always being open to new ideas. In this way, our interactions are based on mutual appreciation and trust, and we believe in complete collaboration.
We are driven by a passion for exceptional performance, in the spirit of our guiding principle, “Being SWISS means going the extra mile – always”. This is why we always take responsibility for what we do and get the job done – that is our defining quality and why we keep finding new ways to make SWISS stronger and better.
The SWISS company culture plays a decisive role in our ability to turn participation into teamwork, obligation into dependability, an employer into a mentor and a service into added value. Our employees are happy to talk about this culture in their own words, because our motto is: Truly SWISS… where people matter.
Offers for employees
Taking the ordinary and making it extraordinary – SWISS is especially good at that. Above all when it involves the well-being of our employees.
Work & Private Life
Combining work and family life
In addition to flexible workhours (in areas that don’t require shiftwork), SWISS offers a number of part-time positions as well as job-sharing options and shared leadership arrangements. SWISS also promotes and supports remote working (such as from home) by providing every ground employee with their own personal laptop.
Our flying staff may also choose to work under part-time employment models of between 50% and 90%.
Subject to the company’s organizational and operating needs, our ground and flying staff can further take extended periods of unpaid leave. Being as passionate to travel as most of them are, our people find such options very useful for ticking off some more destinations on their Bucket Lists!
