The key to success is motivated employees who support the company. Those who like their work do it well - and those who like their work contribute significantly to the success of the company. This is the principle at Familycare Basel as an employer. We achieve this ambitious goal with a benevolent working atmosphere for our employees and the necessary framework for success:
- Evey day, we balance family and work in our own job
- We cultivate a respectful, open feedback culture
- We have developed a salary model that allows us to pay wages that are well above the industry average of the umbrella association for childcare kibesuisse (Kindertagesstätten Schweiz)
- We reward particularly good work with an incentive wage component
- We conduct annual staff appraisals, in which we attach particular importance to feedback from our employees on their well-being and our working environment
- Education is truly important to us:
- Interns always receive an apprenticeship place after their internship if they qualify for the job
- In every daycare center we employ vocational trainers who supervise, support and challenge the apprentices; they are accompanied by experienced senior vocational trainers
- We have a Head of Training surveys all daycare centers. He/she is responsible for the implementation of consistent and progressive training standards and for the quality assurance of our training.
- We offer interesting development and training opportunities to qualified specialists.
- We offer modern terms of employment, including flexible working hours as well as part-time positions - also for executives
- We contribute financially to the costs of our employees for the external care of their children in our daycare centers
- We cover 100% of the catering costs of our employees in the daycare centers
- Long-term employment is rewarded with additional holidays or extra pays
«The benevolent, open and loving working atmosphere at our Familycare Pierrot daycare center has contributed significantly to the fact that I have always enjoyed coming to work for 11 years now. It gives me great pleasure to be allowed to work here. As an employer, I value Familycare Basel very highly, because you always have the opportunity to continue your education and to contribute this knowledge to the daycare center. This in turn helps to ensure that the quality of the educational work in the daycare center is always high. Familycare Basel has always enabled me to keep my family and work in good balance, as I was able to continue working with a smaller workload after the births of my two daughters. I have always experienced Familycare Basel as a family-friendly employer. Even with a reduced workload, I am able to take on responsibility and continue my education. This is something I particularly appreciate.»
