Switzerland Employment

by Stephan Smith on February 15, 2012

Welcome to the Switzerland Employment page. On this page I will be keeping track of the Swiss labor market. To be more specific, I will monitor annual employment percentage changes on a quarterly basis and the unemployment rate as defined by the ILO (International Labour Organisation). Switzerland’s employment information is provided by the Federal Statistical Office of Switzerland.
