Working conditions & benefits

Working conditions and benefits

Annual leave

All Ypsomed employees are entitled to at least 26 days' leave per year. Depending on their position, age and working hours, some may even be entitled to more.

Annualised hours work contracts, part-time work

Our employees have annualised hours work contracts. Depending on their position and their area of responsibility, this model allows for flexible working hours and innovative opportunities for structuring working time.


Ypsomed's mobility policy actively promotes the use of public transport. All of our company's sites are easily accessible by public transport. We use the proceeds from parking fees to fund public-transport vouchers for all of our employees. Therefore we fulfil our corporate responsibility as an environmentally conscious company.

Supplementary social benefits

Sickness pay and accident insurance
Ypsomed has taken out supplementary insurance for its employees that ensures they receive medical care in at least a semi-private room in the case of an accident. The continued payment of wages in the case of illness or accident is guaranteed for a maximum of 24 months.

From their second year with the company, female employees are entitled to 16 weeks of paid maternity leave on full pay. In their first year with the company, female employees are entitled to 14 weeks of maternity leave on 80% of their insured pay.

Pension fund
Ypsomed has its own company pension scheme. All annual salaries up to CHF 200,000 are insured. Ypsomed pays 55% of the savings contributions and the employees pay 45%. The employees can also take advantage of an optimised savings plan on request.

Long-service gifts

We place great emphasis on employee satisfaction and therefore also on continuity and long service. This is why loyalty to our company is rewarded with a long-service gift every five years.
