Switzerland: working mothers is normal

400The average of the Swiss working moms is the highest in Europe. According to a survey conducted by the Federal Statistical Office (FSO), about four out of five mothers were professionally active in 2015.

According to research, if the rate of working mothers in Switzerland is so high it is due to work-generalization; moreover, in special ranking part-time women, Switzerland ranks second among European nations behind the Netherlands.

Motherhood involves the abandonment of professional activity only in one case out of seven. However it provides a series of changes, including a sharp reduction in working hours, corresponding to a working day less per week.

According to the FSO some women, who left the labor market or who have sharply reduced their employment for the birth of a child, gradually resume these activities a few years later. 

The decision to stop work is often not voluntary: most mothers do not actively search a job, but one out of two does not hesitate, if an interesting offer, the possibility of resuming his career.
