schillingreport 2022

Looking at the data in terms of diversity, the 17th edition of the schillingreport shows that – in addition to the very encouraging development in terms of gender mix – the proportion of foreigners on the executive boards rises slightly to 44 % (43 % in the previous year). It should be emphasized that this stagnation at a high level is supported by 50 % foreign executive board members among the newly appointed board members (40 % and 49 % in the previous years). The executive board members are from 30 countries besides Switzerland. Among the new female executive board members, the percentage of managers without a Swiss passport is 54 %, with 78 % of these being «nationals», i.e., women who were already employed in Switzerland or in a Swiss firm before being appointed to their current position.
