schillingreport 2019 – Transparency at the Top. The Executive and Supervisory Boards of the largest Swiss Companies and the Public Sector

At the press conference of Thursday, 7 March 2019, we presented the current facts and development trends of the executive boards and boards of administration of the largest Swiss employers. Alongside the private sector also data of the public sector has been evaluated and compared for the fourth time.

Good news: Gender diversity is gaining momentum at Swiss companies. The percentage of women is increasing on both the supervisory and the executive boards of the country’s 100 largest employers. The gender diversity pipeline is widening, and the public sector is still leading the way. Appointments to the executive boards from inside the company are at an all-time high. The percentage of foreigners appears to be levelling off.

Since 2006, the schillingreport has been collecting data on the composition of the management boards and boards of directors of Switzerland’s 100 largest employers. The analyses show how these boards have developed over the past thirteen years , with a special focus on gender diversity and the percentage of foreigners in management positions. For the fourth time, the schillingreport compares the management boards of the private sector with the public administrations.

The schillingreport creates transparency at the top.
