Since 2011, STSA runs a unique compensation survey, fully tailored to the Swiss trading and shipping sector and it needs.
More than 20 trading/shipping companies in Switzerland participate each year and can thus benchmark their competitiveness to recruit, engage and retain staff.
The Salary Survey helps to understand peer practices on benefits, deferred awards, performance measurement, salary budgeting, etc.
It is led by McLagan/Aon Hewitt and participants get access to the data and analysis on remuneration of packages in commodity trading at a Pan-European level.
WoTime – record working hours and conform to swiss regulations
Swiss worktime legislation requires companies to record staff working hours. STSA has partnered with SQRD.ch to develop simple and affordable app-based solution that allows member companies to comply with Swiss rules.
WoTime is expected to be available to STSA's members in March 2017.
