Presentation, November 9th 2016
Anne Wolf, Director Corporate Responsibility of the Swiss Post, gave us insights on responsible management in practice by the example of Swiss Post.
As a leading company in four different markets (letters, parcels, passengers, customer assets) and being the backbone of public transport the Swiss Post constantly have to innovate and improve its products and services. What is more, there is always the aspect of taking responsibility towards people, customers, employees and the environment.
Once the responsibilities and resulting targets are defined the next step is to harness the potential of responsibilities. Consequently, you have to put the people in the centre and approach topics like diversity, digitisation, transformation, generation Y and new forms of work. Sustainability relates to every single topic and as soon as you implement a responsible management, you achieve a sustainable management.
As Head of Coporate Responsibility Anne Wolf leads the sustainability efforts of the company. Swiss Post is convinced that taking care of the environment, being fair towards its staff and partners, and showing commitment to a strong community is a recipe for long-term success. This is why Swiss Post aims to achieve a balance between eco-friendly action, social responsibility and financial success.
