Added value for our employees A work-life balance. As a university, we are only successful if our employees can play a part and continue to develop. We ensure that our working environment and our values fulfil the highest demands. As a place to work and area to live in, a job at our university opens up a wide range of options and opportunities to get involved. Flexible working times and part-time positions We can offer our employees flexitime with variable weekly hours and holiday entitlements. As a family-friendly employer, we also offer part-time positions. Personnel development As an educational institution, the personal and professional development of our employees is particularly important to us. We regularly hold performance appraisals and frequently define development goals and measures. We support and encourage personnel to hone their skills in internal and external training courses. In addition to opportunities at the university or external educational institutions, our employees can also take advantage of the cantonal courses or enrol in an internal English course. Family support and kindergartens Our employees know their children are well cared for at the two kindergartens right near the campus. Patricia Linder, from Löwenzahn and Christiane Peelen from Triangel kindergartens are happy to provide further information. The university sports programme To us, work-life balance is more than just a buzz word: the university sports department offers a comprehensive and affordable programme, advising all university members on sports and health issues. Library The University of St.Gallen library is open to the public and chiefly concentrates on economics and law. You can also find fiction, audio books and works on psychology, education, computer science and literature studies. University restaurant Our employees can take advantage of the university restaurant. The prices are the same as for students. During the semester, daily-changing menus are also available in the library building. Team events and get-togethers Enjoying yourself during and after work is vital. Our teams meet up in their free time, for an annual event, a summer picnic, secret Santa, to take exercise or just for a pleasant get-together in the evening.
