SAS second among the best employers in Switzerland

SAS repeats top ranking in 2016 Best Workplaces in Switzerland

SAS has been recognized once again for its appeal as an employer. In the 2016 Best Workplaces in Switzerland ranking, the Swiss operations of US-based SAS Institute Inc have been awarded second place in the category for businesses with up to 49 employees. The award recognizes companies that are highly attractive to employees and demonstrate especially high employee satisfaction.

The Great Place to Work Institute® Switzerland generates the ranking by anonymously surveying employees on topics such as leadership, trustworthy collaboration, career development, compensation, and general satisfaction.

“We’re particularly pleased to receive this recognition,” said Dr. Patric Märki, Managing Director at SAS Switzerland, “because it confirms our belief that people do their best work when they are happy at work. And when they are able to be part of a something that allows them to realize their potential.”

Putting everything in place to make this possible is a top priority at SAS — both for the organization in general as well as individually for each employee. Märki added, “The result is a pleasant work environment that encourages constructive collaboration. This organizational culture helps us achieve our objectives, forming an important foundation for sustainable success at SAS — both in Switzerland and around the world.”

SAS offers its employees a corporate culture that is based on working together with openness and fairness. Flat hierarchies and an atmosphere that values innovation and encourages people to try new things are key characteristics of work at SAS anywhere in the world. SAS regularly earns the highest employer rankings in numerous countries around the world. In October 2015, for instance, SAS placed second in the World’s Best Multinational Workplace ranking, also conducted by Great Place to Work.
