Working conditions are a key priority at the University of Lausanne. Ranked each year among the best employers in Switzerland, employees are satisfied with an average of 8.9/10 of their work at UNIL. This excellent score stems from the emphasis the university places on work-life balance, career development and fair treatment of all employees. UNIL operates at the cutting edge of innovation and offers a dynamic, forward-looking, international working environment. Almost a third of its staff come from abroad; the Welcome Centre helps them and their families to settle in and deals with questions about day-to-day life in Switzerland and Lausanne, and at UNIL.
