Technology has been more important than ever over the past 12 months. For 93% of companies, it allowed them to stay in business with remote working. But digitalising the employee experience needs to do more than provide tools for work. It also needs to support employees’ wellbeing, career goals and life plans. Swiss Life Preferred Plus does exactly that. The portal helps employees to view and manage their pension and risk benefits 24/7, allowing them to perform simulation about their pension and risk profile whenever they need to. This quarter, we have challenged digitalisation to work harder to empower employees and make flexible working a success, now and in the future.
