Swiss employees are less satisfied in a global comparison. Almost every fifth person wants to change jobs in the next twelve months. This is the result of a global study by the consulting firm PwC. For this purpose, 52,000 employees worldwide were surveyed, 1,043 of them from Switzerland.
In the survey, only every second Swiss said they were satisfied with their job. For comparison: Globally, 57 percent of the participants are satisfied with their work. There are also differences by generation. The baby boomers (born 1946-1964) are the most satisfied, while Generation Z (born 1996-2010) is the least satisfied. This effect can be seen both globally and in Switzerland.
Flexible working models after Covid
A total of 18 percent of those surveyed from Switzerland want to change jobs. This is primarily justified by the desire for more pay and a fulfilling job.
Three-quarters of Swiss employees would also like to be able to work remotely in whole or in part in the coming months. In a global comparison, however, hybrid working models are less common in Switzerland (45 percent to 54 percent).
Women feel unfairly paid
There are also differences in the area of ecology. 43 percent of those surveyed from Switzerland consider it important that their company communicates the impact of its actions on the environment in a transparent manner. Globally, this is required by more than every second employee.
The study also shows a gender gap. Globally speaking, women are less likely to feel fairly paid than men. They are also more likely to feel that their superiors are listening to them. (SDA/sfa)
