The Swiss Life Group aims to offer its employees a safe and healthy working environment.
The nature of the work it performs as a service provider means that general health and safety risks are relatively low. The framework conditions for health and security at the workplace are provided by the local regulatory measures governing each Swiss Life company. Furthermore, all companies implement measures and initiatives aimed at preserving employee health.
Occupational safety and health management
Good working conditions influence employee health. Swiss Life supports this strategically by promoting uniform work structuring, providing a variety of tasks, fostering social interaction, enabling autonomy, room to manoeuvre and learning and development opportunities, ensuring meaningfulness and showing appreciation for its employees and their performance and contributions.
The measures to maintain employee health, promote good working conditions and prevent incapacity to work are based on three pillars:
- Early intervention
All employees of the Swiss Life Group have access to online offerings consisting of text content, short videos, checklists and learning programmes on the topic of “Health and well-being”, which they can use anytime and anywhere they like. The topics on the online platform are divided among three groups: meaningfulness, dealing with stress and dealing with others (line managers, colleagues).
In addition, the divisions – in collaboration with their social partners – provide a range of additional services covering exercise and sport, massages and therapy, relaxation rooms and counselling of all types, e.g. nutrition and social counselling, as well as preventive measures (e.g. medical services, flu vaccines, preventing nicotine dependence, protection of non-smokers). Safety in the workplace (fittings, work stations, instructions) is continuously monitored and adapted to changing requirements.
