International Women’s Day 2018: Over 60 Swiss CEOs recognised gender-balanced leadership as a business imperative

“I believe gender equality means business. Therefore, I commit to implement flexible working for all employees in 2018 – thus fostering a culture of inclusion. Specifically we will roll out a flexible working model and implement a home office policy to attract and retain the best talent who need to be productive on their own terms at times that work for them. To put simply: working time flexibility means more gender equality.”

Rebecca Guntern Flückiger, Head Cluster Europe, Sandoz Pharmaceuticals
