The Swiss HR Barometer is a joint research project of the Universities of Lucerne and Zurich and ETH Zurich. Since 2006, the Swiss HR Barometer analyzes how employees in Switzerland experience their work situation.
Using a representative, regularly conducted and differentiated survey of employees in Switzerland, both the relationship between employees and their employer and the current working climate in organizations in Switzerland are examined in detail. In addition to current, changing focus topics, trends on HRM practices, the psychological contract, work attitudes and behavior, and career orientations are surveyed in each edition.

The editors of the Swiss HR Barometer are Prof. Dr. Gudela Grote, Chair of Work and Organizational Psychology at ETH Zurich, and Prof. Dr. Bruno Staffelbach, Director of the Center for Human Resource Management (CEHRM) and Full Professor of Business Administration at the University of Lucerne.
