HRplus development programme

The continuing professional development of our employees is a subject we feel strongly about. This is why we initiated a targeted employee development programme with HRplus.

Promoting dual studies

Ypsomed offers motivated successful apprentices and employees with potential targeted support in their personal and professional further development. In addition to suitable part-time jobs, the attending of vocational matriculation and technical colleges is supported systematically. For example, in the case of extra-occupational Bachelor studies at a technical college, Ypsomed pays for the entire study fees and offers preferred conditions of employment (e.g. in the form of financial support and an interim reduced workload).

Ypsomed promotes catch-up training

To remain successful and innovative in the future, Ypsomed depends on well-trained specialists. To give an example: Ypsomed promotes catch-up training systematically and thus the vocational qualification according to Art. 32 of the Vocational Training Ordinance. This makes it possible for employees without a certified apprenticeship, to subsequently obtain a vocational qualification with the Swiss Certificate of Competence (EFZ) after several years in practice. Untrained employees can thus keep up with the increasing demands due to progressive automation as well as improving their attractiveness for the labour market. Ypsomed currently offers this option for the profession of «Plant Operator» in Solothurn, whereby Ypsomed bears the entire training costs, pays for the training days of inter-company courses and provides suitable trainers and practice counsellors.
