Many employers will create new jobs in 2022

And so does SBB.

That's what

  • Despite the pandemic, many companies will create jobs in 2022.

  • First and foremost the flight handler Swissport.

  • However, Swissport had to cut many jobs beforehand.

  • Migros, SBB and Swiss Post also want to create jobs in 2022.

A good job year in 2021 is followed by a very good 2022. This is shown by an exclusive survey by the “SonntagsZeitung” (paid article). 20 of the 89 large employers surveyed want to increase the number of their jobs, only four are facing job cuts, the rest of them expect a stable number of jobs.

The biggest job maker in the new year will be the flight handler Swissport. He wants to hire 850 new employees – that is the largest job creation in the company's history. Because of the pandemic, Swissport, like other companies in the aviation industry, had cut hundreds of jobs. The aircraft maintenance company SR Technics also wants to create 150 new jobs. There will be many new jobs at the world's largest watch manufacturer Swatch Group, the SBB, the post office and in the retail trade. The largest employer, Migros, has advertised more than 1,600 jobs. The number of vacancies is currently at a record level in Switzerland at 232,825.

The past year had already gone well for the employees. 51 of the 89 companies surveyed created jobs. The largest job maker was Lonza with 1,400 new jobs. Roche, Google, the security industry, insurers, the retail trade and the machine industry have expanded significantly. However, the workforce decreased in thirty of the companies surveyed. The aviation industry stands out as the biggest job losses. Swiss, Swissport, SR Technics and Zurich Airport cut hundreds of jobs. SV Group, UBS, Novartis, Galenica and Axpo have also cut many jobs. The bottom line, however, was that more companies built up than down.
