Orange ranks among the best employers in French-speaking Switzerland

11 April 2012

Orange achieved the highest rating in the large company category in the "Best Employer" survey conducted by the business magazine Bilan. It distinguished itself particularly in the fields of equal rights, development and training, and pensions.

Every year, the business magazine Bilan rates the best employers in French-speaking Switzerland based on a comprehensive survey. The results published in the current edition of Bilan under the headline "Les 30 meilleurs employeurs romands." [The 30 Top Employers in Romandy] show Orange in the top spot in the category for big companies with over 500 employees - ahead of Swisscom and Coop. Taking all six categories together, Orange ranked sixth out of a total of 88 companies and public institutions.

A step ahead in training and equal rights

Orange performed exceptionally well in terms of development and training, pensions, and promotion of equal rights, achieving first place in all these areas. In the first category, the above-average number of training days per year and employee received particular praise. In terms of equality, Orange was able to impress with a specific program designed for the advancement of women in management positions and its commitment to non-familial childcare.

On the subject of childcare, Orange has recently entered into a new cooperation with the company familienservice. All Orange employees are now able to use the advisory and agency services offered by familienservice as regards childcare throughout Switzerland. Orange will cover the costs of the service for its employees.

Survey evaluation method

Bilan worked closely with the organisation HKP for this year's survey carried out in French-speaking Switzerland (the fourth overall). The assessment method was further refined compared with previous years. The companies surveyed each received a questionnaire, with 63 questions covering eleven fields. Orange scored 694 points out of a maximum of 1000. The companies were divided into six categories for the evaluation. In total, 88 companies and public entities with around 256,000 employees from French-speaking Switzerland took part in the survey.
