Simply better!… in the workplace (Einfach besser! … am Arbeitsplatz)

Nowadays, every employee needs a range of skills: understanding work schedules, completing electronic work reports, logging measurements and product codes, or using a computer for simple operations. The Swiss Confederation promotes these skills for life through the programme “Simply better! … in the workplace” (Einfach besser! … am Arbeitsplatz).

“Simply better! … in the workplace” aims to make employees fit for the challenges in the world of work. The Confederation promotes in-company courses that further develop the job-oriented skills of employees. These include

  • literacy and oral expression in the local language
  • everyday mathematics
  • dealing with information and communication technology

Academia Languages supports you throughout the whole process with the necessary know-how in planning, designing and implementing your workplace-oriented courses – so that your employees simply become better at work.
