Family-friendly employer

Family-friendly employers not only pay attractive salaries, they also voluntarily provide many other benefits.

Within the framework of the project 'Family-friendly companies are more successful', organised by the canton of Aargau, the benefits we voluntarily provide were considered both generous and family-friendly.

«We are aware of how much staff have to accomplish in this day and age. Accordingly, they deserve to be shown considerable appreciation – not only with regard to their work, but also their personal sphere. I believe that many companies would run in a more humane and nevertheless more efficient manner if more attention were to be paid to promoting the compatibility of family and career. »
