Employment conditions

As a progressive employer, we offer attractive terms of employment and social benefits.

  

Working hours

 

The official flexible working week is 41.9 hours. You're entitled to a paid break of 15 minutes if you work at least four hours, and 30 minutes if you work longer than four hours per day. We also grant additional paid absences for certain events.

  

Holidays

 

All employees are entitled to at least 20 days of holiday  plus five compensation days per year – or more, depending on age and position. National holidays that fall on a non-working day are compensated with a total of two additional days of holiday per year.

  

Balancing personal life, family and career

 

We want our employees to be able to combine their personal and family life with their career. That's why we allow a variety of part-time and home-office working models.

 

We provide 16 weeks of paid maternity leave and 10 days of paid paternity leave – both at full pay. There are also five places available for our employees at the nearby children's day-care centre, Kids & Co Wankdorf.

 

In addition to the cantonal family allowance, we also pay an additional allowance that is higher than the statutory minimum. Employees with children under the age of seven also receive an income-related childcare allowance.

  

Pension fund

 

Our employees are insured under a defined contribution plan with the Swiss Federal Pension Fund PUBLICA. The contribution amount is staggered according to age. We bear the risk premiums and contribute at least 50% of the savings contributions. It's also possible to make additional voluntary contributions.

  

Sickness benefits

 

All of our employees are entitled to sick pay. In the event of sickness, your salary will continue to be paid for two years; the amount depends on the number of years of employment with the IPI.

  

Accident insurance

 

In addition to compulsory accident insurance (we pay two-thirds of the premium), all of our employees are insured for supplementary accident insurance. This covers additional services, such as medical treatment in a semi-private room at the least. Your salary will continue to be paid for two years; the amount is dependent on your length of employment with the IPI.

  

Length of service awards

 

We reward employees with a generous length of service award for every five years of service with our organisation.

  

Half-fare and GA travelcards

 

All employees who have an employment contract of one year receive an SBB Half-Fare travelcard. On request, you can also take advantage of a 10% reduction on a GA travelcard.

  

Reka-Checks

 

Our employees can purchase Reka-Checks worth CHF 1000 at a 30% discount.

  

Cafeteria

 

The food and drinks at our in-house cafeteria are subsidised. There are also microwaves available in the cafeteria.
