Continuous further education of employees is essential for us as a medical engineering company. This is why we offer our employees a wide range of training opportunities and support them in their individual development.

Vocational training in eleven professions

We take on social responsibility across the company and train young people in eleven vocational professions. The approximately 55 make up around five per cent of the workforce. More than 80 per cent of the graduate apprentices were offered full-time employment after successfully completing their final exam.

Continuous further education and career opportunities

Ypsomed supports employees in their professional development. We offer numerous internal and external training opportunities for targeted, job-specific further training.

In the area of catch-up training – the training certificate for adults – we actively promote employees who wish to obtain a federal certificate of proficiency. Employees who wish to continue their education while working by obtaining a professional diploma or a university degree are given time and financial support.

A career is possible via leadership, specialist and project career paths. We use career options to promote individual job alternatives for managers before they actually retire.

Flexible working models

We offer all our employees modern concepts of work organisation:

  • Annual working time
  • Part-time work
  • Job sharing
  • Home office
  • Sabbaticals

Flexible retirement is also included in our job models. This is possible between the ages of 60 and 70 with a gradual reduction in employment (career option). Our future-oriented job models were awarded the Solothurn Business Award in 2017.
