Life-Balance – Flexible working hours and holidays.

Many of the jobs at SBB require employees to work shifts and over the weekend. Whenever possible, however, we offer our employees flexible working hours based on a 41-hour workweek. We are also in favour of part-time work and offer a range of workweek options for greater flexibility.

The following options are available for working part-time.

Weekly reduction in working hours.

e.g. one day off per week

Daily reduction in working hours.

e.g. shorter working days

Job sharing.

2 employees share the same position 

Reduction in the amount of time worked per year.

e.g. 100% in summer, part-time payment, compensation in winter


SBB employees have at least 26 days holidays per year.
