For Swiss Life, the militia system is a part of Switzerland’s success. It promotes better understanding among the worlds of politics, society and business and enables a valuable mutual knowledge transfer. Swiss Life supports its employees in performing a political or public office. Full-time employees can use up to 20% of their working hours to exercise a mandate and participate in internal and external events for employees in public or political office.
