All of our employees can take advantage of market-competitive benefits tailored to their location that include, for example, health care, pension / retirement benefits, family and personal leaves and flexible working options. Our benefits are designed to enhance employees’ work experiences and help them manage their personal and professional lives. As a result, they're often better than what's required by local law or market practices. For example:
- Swiss employees can request Time Flex (teleworking, part time or job-sharing arrangements) and begin partial retirement starting at 58. In the UK and US, a variety of part time, flexible, job sharing and home-working options are available to employees, if their roles are amenable.
- US and Puerto Rico employees can take four weeks of paid Family Care Leave per calendar year to care for a spouse, domestic partner, child, parent, grandparent, or sibling with a serious health condition.
- A new parent coaching program in the US supports parents (either first-timers or those adding to their families) with one-on-one personalized coaching. Licensed coaches give practical parenting advice and help facilitate smooth transitions – from when leave begins through workplace re-entry.
- Eligible employees in the UK can request Shared Parental Leave, an initiative introduced by the UK Government in 2015 to provide flexibility and equality to the traditional set-up of maternity leave.
We also encourage our employees to make a difference in their local communities by offering them up to two working days a year to volunteer. Check out some of the projects highlighted on our community investment page.
