Neuchâtel, May 9th, 2022 – For the majority of graduates of higher vocational education (graduation year 2016), the professional situation in 2020 has changed, at least temporarily, as a result of the measures taken to combat the Covid-19 pandemic. 45% of them worked in the home office, 17% of the salaried graduates were affected by short-time work and for around a third of the self-employed the Covid 19 pandemic led to a reduction in earned income and a reduction in work orders. These are the most important results from the new publication of the Federal Statistical Office (FSO).

This media release and further information on the subject can be found on the FSO website (see link below).
