Cash Employers’ Award
With the Employers’ Award, CASH wants to give Swiss companies with more than 100 employees the possibility of acquiring important information about the commitment of their employees and the present state of the organizational conditions that influence their performance. This survey is the only public study conducted in Switzerland in which employees assess their own employers. Contrary to conventional surveys, all that counts here is the opinion of those who experience, on a daily basis, how a company treats its staff. Eighty-one companies from various economic sectors participated in the CASH Employers’ Award 2008 and 45,585 employees completed questionnaires to rate their employer.
