Team

Best place to be – and to work!

Our vision consciously relates not only to our guests, but also in equal parts to our valued employees. Our goal is to be one of the best employers in the hotel industry! We want to create a working environment in which our employees can develop, feel good, are encouraged and remain healthy and happy.

We are heavily involved in training and development and our talent management system places a strong emphasis on developing talent.

ENVIRONMENT

Our in-house environmental group "The Green Busters" has been charged with the mission of making the Hotel Schweizerhof Bern more environmentally friendly since 2016. Within this framework, several projects have already been implemented or are in the starting blocks. We are particularly proud of the myclimate Award received in 2019 as "Pioneer of holistic sustainability in hotel operations".

We are Swisstainable!

We are officially part of Swisstainable.
Our ongoing commitment to sustainable development in our operations is strengthened by this commitment. Thus, we make a concrete contribution to the sustainable development of Swiss tourism.

SOCIETY & MARKET

As a Bernese hotel, it is important to us to maintain intensive relations with our external stakeholders and to play a part in society through our social commitment. Over the last few years we have established various partnerships and participate as a team in various events such as: Swiss Paralympics, Foodsave Banquet, Benefit Bicycle-Marathon Race for Life, Swiss Women's Run etc.

Through our cooperation with the foundations Diaconis and intact we are also involved in the area of "professional integration".
