Human Resources: Swiss women prefer part-time jobs

Figures released by Switzerland's Federal Statistics Office, reveal that while Switzerland's workforce employs a higher percentage of females than in most of Europe - most avoid full-time jobs.

The figures based on data from 2005, shows 59 per cent of working age Swiss women are in the workforce - more than in any other country in Europe outside of Scandinavia. However, 59 percent have part-time jobs, a rate also higher than anywhere else in Europe, outside of Holland.
