Re: Where to best locate one's business in CH ?

One advantage in Switzerland is that country and city are not necessarily that far apart. Phonak is here in Stafa and we are an easy 20 minute train ride to downtown Zurich. Yet, we have the lake across the street and vineyards, orchards, hiking trails...etc. I would think that one would want workers who have the opportunity to foster good, healthy, and exciting outside activities. All work and no play makes for very frustrated employees.

As far as your examples go...I agree with the other member who said that there are too many factors involved to make your assumptions. UBS happens to be an extremely successful, global company providing the largest wealth management service in the world. There is very good reason for having it in Zurich.
