Working at Basler & Hofmann has many facets: It means working on exciting projects and challenging assignments. It also means inspiring and cooperative teamwork with specialists from a wide range of disciplines, and it means being valued as an individual and supported in one’s own development. All of these factors come together to ensure that Basler & Hofmann is a highly rewarding place to work – from both a professional and a personal perspective.

Attractive working environment

Flexible working hours

Our staff enjoy a great deal of independence when it comes to time planning and have considerable freedom to structure their own working hours. We work on the basis of annual working hours, and are open to various part-time models – ideally from 60 per cent upwards. Overtime can be compensated with time off arranged in agreement with the team.

Professional and personal development

We look for individuals with initiative who want to develop further and are open for new challenges. This is why it is important to us to open up new perspectives: with new assignments in a project or in a different specialist area, by internal or external trainings. 

Work and family life

Achieving a work-life balance requires not only flexibility with working hours, but also a corporate culture that actively supports this value. At Basler & Hofmann part-time working is commonplace for men and women and in all functions.

Exchange and cooperation

Our project work is based on exchange between disciplines, between young and more experienced specialists, and between different approaches. There are lots of opportunities to meet new people: at excursions, corporate events or internal get-togethers. We also have a regular exchange program with our parent company in Switzerland. All of these opportunities help employees to feel at home very quickly.

What is important to us – corporate culture

The project is core

The project is the focal point of our approach . Project teams are put together in such a way that technical requirements are optimally fulfilled – regardless of our organisational structure. This means that we take an interdisciplinary approach to our work, and do so in very flat hierarchies. Project leaders perform a central role and have considerable freedom in their work. 

Challenging assignments

The more complex, the better –many of our staff think. We thrive on “difficult” assignments that are a real challenge to solve. We promise our clients excellent results, and there is huge knowledge potential on hand at Basler & Hofmann to enable us to achieve them. Thanks to interdisciplinary project teams, our open doors policy and numerous exchange platforms, each and every individual is able to tap into this potential.

The team is the star

Team spirit is a top priority for us. The focus is on joint success with everyone doing their best to achieve it. This can often be a challenge: particularly in interdisciplinary teams, one sometimes has to rethink one’s own “ideal” solution. The  task of overcoming such challenges is made much easier by a willingness to engage in dialogue, curiosity and perseverance.

Trust and support

We nurture a culture of trust that is based on an open and honest approach to colleagues. Our employees work with a strong sense of personal responsibility and high standards for quality – and can rely on receiving support particularly in difficult moments.

« A great plus here is the opportunity to work on foreign projects with co-workers from Switzerland and Germany. Different perspectives on a project and international experience from a range of projects are a great advantage. » Marián Kováčik, Senior Road Design Engineer
