Nearly One in Two Swiss Companies Considering Job Reductions

From an article in the Tagi, a survey by Deloitte shows a gloomy jobs outlook come autumn, with half of firms reporting plans for jobs reductions :


http://www.tagesanzeiger.ch/wirtscha...story/17744129


Doch bereits im Herbst dürfte es auf dem Schweizer Arbeitsmarkt turbulent werden: 82 Prozent der Firmen planen laut «SonntagsZeitung» Massnahmen im Personalbereich wie Arbeitszeiterhöhungen bei gleichem Lohn oder nominale Lohnkürzungen.

Rund die Hälfte der Firmen müssten wohl zu noch drastischeren Massnahmen greifen. Diese könne gemäss dem Bericht nur mit Streichungen der Stellen die währungsbedingten Konkurrenznachteile ausgleichen. Der Personalabbau sei bereits heute in Planung. Das geht aus einer Umfrage des Beratungsunternehmens Deloitte, das Angaben von 111 Firmenchefs ausgewertet hat, hervor. Auch eine Umfrage der Nationalbank, SNB, ist beunruhigend: Zwei Drittel der Unternehmen gaben an, bis Juni Personalmassnahmen getroffen zu haben – bis hin zu Verlagerungen ins Ausland.


Roughly:

But by Autumn the Swiss labor market is likely to show turbulence: according to the Sonntagszeitung 82 percent of companies plan to roll out personnel measures, such as increasing working hours at the same salary or nominal wage cuts.

Around half of the companies would probably resort to more drastic measures. According to the report only layoffs can compensate for the currency-related competitive disadvantages. Workforce reductions are already planned. This comes from a survey by the consulting firm Deloitte, who have evaluated the data of 111 CEOs. Also, a survey by the SNB is worrying: through June, two thirds of companies stated that they have taken personnel measures - to relocations abroad.


A similar article in Swissinfo:

Nearly one in two Swiss companies are considering cutting their workforce in a bid to offset pessimistic economic growth prospects, according to a company survey.

Interesting times ahead...

Re: Nearly One in Two Swiss Companies Considering Job Reductions

In the other thread you can see that the GEWERKSCHAFTSBUND demands a new PEG. The speak about 1.30 which of course is rubbish but halfway between 1.30 and 1.00 is 1.15

Re: Nearly One in Two Swiss Companies Considering Job Reductions

The Swiss government should make Switzerland unattractive to criminals and their money. Only then will the Frank drop a little, it is madness to throw our savings away by buying Euros to keep the Frank less attractive.

It should announce the end of complete bank secrecy, along the lines of
"We will pass on details to any government submitting a legal request about the financial details of any person"

Cameron has stated today that the UK also has a problem with black money. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-33684098

Re: Nearly One in Two Swiss Companies Considering Job Reductions

monthly salaries in Switzerland are between CHF 2500 and CHF 3300. But in the corrupt finance sector up from CHF 3500

There was a crash in the computer-Internet sector around 2000 and one in the banking sector a while before and will be another one shortly. Lots of bank employees and Computer/Internet chaps will become fired within 20 months now

Be fair - lots of employees in the corrupt finance sector ARE earning upwards of CHF 3500...

So are lots of employees in the corrupt bar-tendering, cleaning and teaching sectors.

And don't even get me started on all those corrupt nurses...
