We look forward to seeing you again.
We enjoyed chatting to you in person. It's great that you took the time! You, and we, now have a better impression of each other. Some things might have been covered a little too fast: so now is an opportunity to read everything through again in your own time.
Here, in simple and concise form, is all the information you need to know. Corporate culture, staff development, benefits – everything you can expect from us.
Facts & Benefits Overview
These benefits apply if you work for us in Switzerland, at the head office in Basel. At Baloise Bank SoBa, our outposts and our business units abroad, there may be differences.

Pay & benefits
Fair, transparent, sustainable and market-oriented – these are the principles upon which our remuneration system for employees is based. We also regularly make use of external salary benchmarks in order to see where we stand in relation to our competitors.
We encourage and support personal commitment and individual effort. For example, variable salary components ensure that management employees who achieve their agreed-upon targets benefit financially from the success of the company.
We also offer employees in Switzerland the opportunity to participate in various employee share ownership plans, and thus benefit from the financial success of the Baloise Group as well.
We are looking for people who want to develop. The more we learn, the more secure our position is at a time when jobs are being redefined. Yes, you will have to break out of your comfort zone on occasion, but you are not alone.
Brown bag lunches are one of the daily tools for sharing knowledge. Lunchtime language courses are run on a permanent basis, including at our two training centres in Arlesheim and Jongny in Switzerland. We look after our managers with particular development potential across the group, in our “Baloise Campus” programme. Talent management, training and further development opportunities and the chance to temporarily switch job complete our staff development.
Your first work day is a Welcome Day. You will meet other employees who have also just joined us and start to familiarise yourself with everything. We’ll also take you on a tour of the entire location so that you can get to know us even better. You’ll find out which strategies we pursue and why we combine insurance and banking operations. You’ll also learn about various internal programmes available to you and where all the departments are located. During the “Open House” event, you can get a taste of different areas and begin establishing your first networks, making it easier for you to settle in.
No problem. We hold monthly "Meet & Greet” drinks, regularly invite you to various Topic Tables at lunchtime and, once a year, attend the Snow Days. We firmly believe that we all stand to benefit if we come together, network with each other and pool our knowledge.
