Swiss Post: An attractive employer for all
Swiss Post buildings in Bern, Zurich and Geneva were lit up in rainbow colours in June. Swiss Post used the campaign to express its solidarity with the LGBTQIA+ community. The company also launched the #HumansOfSwissPost campaign, which was well-received. “Swiss Post is yellow on the outside, but on the inside, it’s very colourful,” says Mariel Lemos, Co-Lead for Diversity & Inclusion at Swiss Post Group. As the postal operator is a reflection of society with its 54,518 employees worldwide, it is an attractive employer for all kinds of talented people.
This also makes the company economically successful: “If we understand the customers and all their needs, we can offer them the right services.”
RESULTS and IMPACT
The collective employment contract (CEC), which came in force in 2021, with its enhanced arrangements on parental leave for heterosexual and homosexual couples, equality and protection against discrimination, shows that this is not just lip service.
