Group Human Resources manages the divisional HR organisations functionally at Group level. The basic principles, responsibilities and processes are defined and documented in the directives system of the Swiss Life Group. The relevant directive is reviewed regularly and adapted as necessary to new requirements.
All processes, measures and initiatives of Human Resources are aimed at creating the sort of working conditions in which employees can best contribute their ideas, skills and competencies in line with the purpose and objectives. The focus is on a modern understanding of leadership and on achieving an appropriate work-life balance (e.g. through hybrid work models). In addition, systematic HR processes are in place to ensure proper succession planning, especially for positions of particular relevance to the business.
The Swiss Life Group’s Guideline on combating discrimination and promoting diversity and inclusion forms the basis for all activities in this area. These are aimed at dispelling prejudices and reaping the benefits that a diverse company workforce can bring. Moreover, the Group Compensation Policy ensures fair and equal compensation for all employees throughout the Group. Occupational health and safety measures are based on the belief that good working conditions influence the health of employees.
Thanks to its multi-divisional organisation, Swiss Life is able to swiftly anticipate and react to changes in the labour markets. All processes and instruments are continuously reviewed and adapted to the new requirements.
