Without people, there can be no stable company growth or security for our clients.
Vanessa Burkart on values, thoughts for the future and corporate culture from the perspective of swisspartners Human Resources.
Respect, trust, personality, performance and innovation: these five corporate values have always been intrinsic to the way in which we make our vision reality and pursue our goals as a leading financial services provider in Switzerland. They areinherent in our corporate culture, inform our staff in how they approach their daily work and are core features that our clients, partners and colleagues can rely on. Unusual, but effective: our values are displayed on our desktop wallpaper and even in the company washrooms so that they are always present in our minds.
Our staff are the most crucial factor for maintaining longstanding and trustworthy client relationships. As a reliable employer, we offer our staff the conditions they need to leverage their individual skills in the best possible way. These include a range of benefits to ensure an ideal work-life balance, financial security, good health and well-being.
But values aren’t everything. Since our company was founded in 1993, cordiality and a close-knit sense of camaraderie have been the defining features of our team culture. Flat hierarchies and targeted processes encourage our staff to be the living embodiment of personal responsibility and individuality. We offer our staff incentives for continuing professional development and unlock their potential to look to the future. swisspartners thrives on individuals who want to make a difference and enjoy sharing their experience with others. Staff events such as drinks receptions, Christmas dinners and ski weekends are held on a regular basis to nurture our sense of team spirit.
As Human Resources is largely digital nowadays, it will increasingly assume the role of change agent and sparring partner in future. An innovative IT infrastructure, flexible working times and models for working from home were already supported before the pandemic.
Practical and paper-free: swisspartners staff have access to various online portals, for example to record working times and expenses. The new online platform for the HR department showcases swisspartners’ qualities as a modern employer that respects tradition. We plan to continuously develop our Human Resources department under the guiding principle of “new work”. Some of the key concepts include employer branding to support our recruitment drive and an open-plan office to facilitate interaction and communication.
“swisspartners thrives on individuals who want to make a difference.”
