Diversity – living diversity

We promote diversity in a deliberate and responsible way. Blended teams with a broad range of knowledge, abilities, language skills and outlooks not only boost innovation and competitiveness, they also add to the motivation and satisfaction of every single employee.

We attach great importance to equal opportunities. Progressive conditions of employment ensure that all employees have the same opportunities. Flexible working time and part-time models apply at every management level.

To help women thrive in management roles, we're a member of Advance – Gender Equality in Business. This network of over 100 Swiss-based companies is committed to increasing the share of women in management. Membership enables our female employees to attend various skill-building and networking events.

Our in-house women's network, rendez femmes, encourages and supports women in sharing their experiences with one another. And our newly launched mentoring programme gives employees the chance to benefit from the practical experience of others and identify their own development needs.

Equal pay

According to the Federal Office for Gender Equality, there are still great differences in pay here in Switzerland. In 2014, CSS became one of the first companies to be awarded the "Fair Compensation" certificate by the Swiss Association for Quality and Management Systems (SQS), attesting to equal pay for equal work. CSS has practically eliminated the pay gap since then. We remain committed to the principle of equal pay for equal work, and take part in the annual review.

What our employees say: Judith appreciates the flexible working hours

Judith appreciates the flexibility at CSS. “This is of central importance for someone in my situation with children at home and who works many hours a week.” (in german)

Cooperating across languages

As a company that is present throughout Switzerland, we work in three of its national languages – French, German and Italian – and are thus attuned to the cultural differences between each language region. We also give our employees the chance to attend language courses. The basic rule in our day-to-day work is that everyone can communicate in their own mother tongue.
