Allreal attaches great importance to the continuous internal and external training of its staff across all hierarchical levels, and generally covers 100% of the costs incurred as well as the working hours. This ensures that employees are up to date with the latest technical developments and in a position to do their job well. Proven and continually optimised processes and highly trained employees with experience in construction and working methods guarantee effective workflows and enable the efficient application of new technologies.
In the 2020 financial year, Allreal employees underwent an average of 37.5 hours of further training. The company invested a total of CHF 202,854 in internal and external training, corresponding to anaverage of CHF 931 per employee.
All employees are entitled to at least five weeks of annual leave. Plus, an attractive working time model with a set number of hours to be worked during the year affords staff the flexibility to plan their own time. Pandemic aside, Allreal gives all employees with an office job the chance to work from home.
Employees are given a special gift for every five years of service, which could take the form of shares, annual leave allowance or a lump-sum payment. Allreal also has its own pension scheme with excellent benefits.
Allreal moved into its new head office – known as the Lightcube – on Glattpark in the summer of 2020 and this provided the perfect opportunity to create a modern working environment. At the Lightcube, each employee still has a dedicated workspace of their own, designed in line with the latest research into ergonomics. But they also have access to all kinds of other work zones that cater to specific requirements and types of tasks. For example, there are designated spaces for formal meetings and informal gatherings alongside areas designed for work requiring concentration, group efforts and collaboration on projects. This use of space improves efficiency, whilst making the workplace more dynamic, keeping employees moving and encouraging communication. Several training sessions on ergonomics in the workplace allowed staff members to adapt their working space to suit their own personal needs based on tailored advice.
