What is The Best Employers 2020?

The Best Employers 2020 is a final list of 250 companies in Switzerland that have been selected for their success as excellent employers. The classification of the companies is by category for pharmaceutical, transportation, construction, and banking and finance.

The list of “Best employers 2020” is based on a large-scale online panel survey where thousands of employees were interviewed, as well as judgements generated via the websites of Le Temps and Handelszeitung. More than 100,000 ratings were included in the ranking across all channels. The survey phase ran from May to July 2019.

The survey identified over 1,500 employers with 200 or more employees in Switzerland. This was done on the basis of the previous year’s list as well as through comprehensive desk research from numerous sources (industry associations, trade journals, economic research institutes, etc.).


Which are the criteria for the ranking?

The criteria on which the ranking is based are mainly the answers to two questions. The first is “Would you recommend your employer to your family and friends”, a rating on a scale of 0 to 10. The second: “Would you recommend another company in your industry?”
