SAS once again among the best employers in Switzerland
SAS has been recognized once again as one of the best employers in Switzerland. In the Best Workplaces Switzerland 2018 ranking by the Great Place to Work Institute, the Swiss subsidiary of the US software company earned third place in its category. The main factors behind this top ranking included the excellent company culture and the high emphasis SAS places on employee satisfaction. The award ceremony took place on May 16 at Kaufleuten in Zurich.
SAS also earns frequent praise as an employer in international comparisons. In Germany and Austria, the software manufacturer ranked in the top 10 once again in 2018. For the Great Place to Work ranking, employees of participating companies are anonymously surveyed on topics involving general satisfaction, collaboration, compensation, leadership, and professional development.
Dr. Patric Märki, Vice President SAS Region DACH, feels that SAS is on the right path as an employer: “I’m very pleased that SAS has been recognized as one of the best employers in Switzerland again in 2018. This shows that employees at SAS feel appreciated—and that has a positive impact on their interactions with customers. For us as a company, this can be translated into the following formula: Only with satisfied employees can we ensure our customers are satisfied. And our ranking shows that we have both in Switzerland — I’m very proud of that.”
“It’s always a great affirmation to keep finishing near the top of ranking such as Great Place to Work. We want to offer employees flexibility and an environment they enjoy working in. Part of that is enabling each one of us to put our talents to their best use and receive opportunities to grow. This is the only way to ensure employees are satisfied with their workplace. These efforts to create an outstanding place to work, to offer as much flexibility as possible, and to ensure lifelong learning have always characterized SAS,” said Marlies Bürkel, Director Human Resources SAS DACH. “The positive response we’ve seen confirms that we’re on the right track.”
