Swiss International Air Lines has been ranked as the most attractive employer in a survey on the 150 largest companies in Switzerland. Zurich Airport came in second, followed by watchmaker Patek Philippe.
The survey, published by Dutch recruitment agency Randstadexternal link on Thursday, asked 4,800 people aged 18-65 where they would like to work. The study took 16 criteria into account, including work environment, salary, job security, work-life balance, and flexibility.
The aviation sector claimed three of the top ten spots, and the watch industry took another three.
Internet giant Google topped the list last year as well as two other times in recent years. However, it was dropped from the survey this year as Randstad does not allow a company to win more than three times within five years.
Randstad has been measuring society’s perception of companies in Switzerland since 2014. The survey is now conducted in 30 countries and takes into account employees in 6,000 companies.
