Leadership and Employee Communication
The Swiss Life corporate culture gives employees plenty of scope to take responsibility. This attitude is a key success factor in Swiss Life’s leadership. By delegating competencies and responsibilities to employees, managers not only foster their innovation and ability to act independently but also express respect and appreciation. The fact that employees value this trust that is placed in them is reflected among other things in their above-average commitment. As a basis for successful leadership and communication, Swiss Life has established behavioural principles applicable throughout the Group that serve as a formal framework.
