Our Career Philosophy
Our career philosophy here at Swarovski is a four-pillar approach. We don’t believe in traditional career paths because every individual is unique.
Our career philosophy is built on 4 pillars:
Opportunities to develop are everywhere
Your career is unique to you
Your career is not just about a hierarchical move
You own your career
Expect a world of igniting possibilities in a unique company environment. Brilliance defines us but it must be created. To support it, we have identified six main types of internal career moves: Leader, Enrichment, Expert, Explorer, Boomerang, and Realignment.
Behind our faceted exterior is a great deal of hard work, know-how, passion, engagement, and cooperation in countless areas of expertise. We reshape reality and make magic happen together.
We provide everyone at Swarovski with the opportunity for continued learning, growth, and development. You can choose between six different career development options. It’s the combination of these moves that we choose over our working lives which create our own personal career journey. We describe the moves as different ways to grow because each one offers different benefits for different people depending on their preferences.
What is it? Developing leadership and people management skills Why? To build autonomy and ownership and utilize skills and passion for leading people Example: Sales Consultant to Store Manager
What is it? Growing in place Why? Build and strengthen upon current skills Example: Developing in current role
What is it? Developing a different aspect of your function Why? Build depth of skills within an area and become a ‘guru’ Example: From Product Design Home to Product Design Jewellery
What is it? Moving from one area to another Why? Learn a different area, build breadth of skills, and get a broader perspective across multiple areas Example: From HR Operations to Customer Service
What is it? An employee who leaves, but returns to work for us Why? Boost career, add new skills and grow upon return Example: Recruiter leaves and rejoins in 3 years as Senior Talent Manager
What is it? Decelerating your career Why? Reduce scope or re-focus experience and strengthen existing skills by sharing experience and knowledge with others Example: Taking a career break
Engaged and effective employees drive the performance of our company, and it is important that we offer a competitive rewards package. There are many different elements – both monetary and non-monetary – that are part of each overall package. How the mix is made up depends on the role and location (some benefits may be country specific).
We offer a competitive and equitable annual salary. We embrace a Pay for Performance (P4P) philosophy - your individual performance and the overall performance of the company can influence your base pay in time.
Our variable pay plans are designed to provide the right incentive to the different groups of employees. For example, Short Term Incentives, Profit Sharing, Retail, or Sales Incentive Plan.
We offer a broad range of benefits, aligned with the most competitive market trends in order to provide flexibility and empower our employees to choose the tools that fit with their needs to reach an optimum work-life balance. We also offer product discounts, unforgettable experiences, and more.
Work where you’re productive when you’re productive – for us, flexibility is key. From job sharing for our office employees, flexible shifts in retail, part time jobs, and other flex-time arrangements, we want to make sure you can shape work around your personal life.
