Switzerland is a great place for start-ups

Freedom to make decisions, rapid implementation of ideas and great dynamism - start-ups offer all these benefits. Anyone looking to set up a new business in Europe should do it in Switzerland. This is the conclusion of the latest Randstad work barometer.

Good support for start-ups in Switzerland
Switzerland is a good place to operate a start-up, according to 70% of participants in the Swiss survey. There is no lack of state institutions in Switzerland, like economic development, the Commission for Technology and Innovation, and "gruenden.ch", which is the start-up platform of the Canton of Zurich. No wonder, then, that Switzerland is at the top of the European rankings when it comes to state support for start-ups.

SMEs are desirable employers
But do Swiss employees want to work for start-ups? 42% of respondents answered "Yes" to this question. This puts Switzerland below the global average of 50%. The percentage is only above 50% among Swiss men aged between 18 and 34. "One of the most important factors in choosing an employer is job security. This is proved by this year's Randstad Employer Brand Research. It is possible that this is why employees are reluctant to apply for jobs with a start-up", suggests Nathalie Zihlmann, HR Director Randstad Switzerland. The situation is very different when respondents are asked whether they would like to work for an SME. Switzerland leads the field here, with 79% giving a positive response.

Randstad Mobility Index
The Randstad Mobility Index states how many employees expect to start a new, similar job within the next six months. The index provides comprehensive findings of the moods and trends on the labour market. In Switzerland, the index rose from 101 to 103 points (+2) in the first quarter of 2017.
