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