SAS named one of best workplaces in Switzerland
SAS Switzerland has been listed fourth on the Great Place to Work® Institute's prestigious list of Swiss companies with fewer than 250 employees.
"We are delighted being recognized as one of Switzerland's leading employers in 2012," said Patric Märki, Managing Director at SAS Switzerland.
This is the first year that SAS Switzerland participated in the annual survey by Great Place To Work® Institute, a research company specializing in analyzing workplace environments. Results were published on May 3 in one of Switzerland's leading business magazine Handelszeitung. Dialogue with employees, communication, transparency, work-life balance and total compensation are some of the areas taken into account in compiling the list of best workplaces.
"The result is exceptionally good news, because the feedback of our employees and therefore their satisfaction with SAS as an employer in a dynamic and demanding working workplace was vital for this result", said Susy Brunner, HR Director at SAS Switzerland.
"Continuous growth can only be accomplished with excellent and highly motivated employees," said Patric Märki, Managing Director SAS Switzerland. "Our corporate culture is the foundation of our success, and I'm proud to be part of the great team we have in Switzerland and the DACH region.”
