Across the country, HR administration in Switzerland requires interventions in multiple domains, such as OASI, tax withholding, family allowances, pension funds, various personnel insurances…all of which require multiple technical skills to properly organize.
Let’s take it up a level! Switzerland functions through cantons with independent administrations. When a company or its employees operate in different cantons, each of those cantons’s regulatory specificities of the HR interventions must be taken into account, which can quickly turn into a headache.
Concretely, which elements of HR administration are affected? Well, we can begin with the systems of procedures, declarations, and follow-ups, which are all mixed with multiple administrations and organizations…but it does not stop there because, when dealing with a multi-cantonal operation, these interventions are not always governed by the same rules, do not require the same forms or means of transmission, and/or are often not in the same language.
As you can see, the Swiss system makes your HR management extremely complex.
The specialists in charge of this management must constantly keep their knowledge up to date to ensure their data processing accuracy and its impact on the calculation of salaries is in line with changing regulations. The search for the right management rules between different organizations and cantons can often be very tedious, and the management of tax withholdings or family allowances can quickly become a nightmare.
