The wellbeing of our staff also means the wellbeing of our company. Therefore, good working conditions contribute significantly to the success.
“We want to win as a team with committed staff”
Health is our most valuable asset
At Feldschlösschen, health topics have always been of great importance. We believe that our company’s success depends significantly on healthy and motivated staff. Therefore, we regard workplace health management and prevention as an important pillar in our HR strategy.
Workplace health management promotes a pleasant work climate and more health-conscious behaviour.
With specific measures such as ergonomic workstations, training on time management, stress prevention and handling shift work or assumption of costs for flu vaccinations, we promote our employees’ health and efficiency. This way we can reduce absences due to illness.
In case of accident or illness, the people responsible look after, support and advise both our staff and their superiors. In case of a longer-term absence due to illness or accident, the workplace health management helps with the reintegration into the workplace (case management).
Feldschlösschen is a “Friendly Work Space®”
In 2012 the Health Promotion Switzerland foundation awarded our company the “Friendly Work Space®” (Registered Partner) label and renewed this certification in 2014. This label is an award for organisations that successfully implement workplace health management. Friendly Work Space companies systematically champion good working conditions for their employees. Feldschlösschen is one of approximately 51 companies across the country to receive this award. We were the first industrial enterprise to pass this certification at the first attempt.
Within the scope of the collective labour agreement, Feldschlösschen’s workers’ commission champions the interests of the company staff as well as progressive and social working conditions. It is elected every three years by the employees and consists of 30 representatives from all GAV occupational fields.
The purpose of the commission is to create good working conditions for the employees in accordance with the specifications of the GAV. It assumes a mediating role between employees and management. In the case of a disagreement, it listens to both sides in its capacity as a neutral, outside entity and helps to clarify the situation in an open discussion.
The workers’ commission maintains a social partnership with the Unia union to enforce legal action under employment law in the employees’ interest.
