Together with HR TODAY we have conducted a job market study with two nationwide surveys on the current Swiss job market situation. With 1,844 participants from all over Switzerland, this year’s response was even greater than last year. The aim of the survey was, on the one hand, to identify new labour market trends and, on the other, to obtain more background information on the focus topic over 50’s. The central question is: Are over 50’s really discriminated against by companies? – Through two parallel surveys, we had the topic assessed by different participant groups on the job market (employers, employees, unemployed) in order to draw a differentiated and holistic picture. All areas of personnel policy were taken into account.
