The MEM Passerelle develops offerings for an individual, adult-focused entry into the MEM industries. On the one hand it is geared towards experienced, technically oriented professionals, and on the other towards businesses keen to develop qualified career changers in a needs-based and individual way in line with the requirements of the industry. The MEM Passerelle is a project by the social partners of the MEM industries’ collective employment agreement (GAV). It was launched by Swissmem and, since the end of 2020, has been implemented by the jointly founded “MEM Passerelle 4.0 AG”.

Together with the University of St. Gallen, specifically the Competence Centre for Diversity & Inclusion (CCDI), from 2022 Swissmem will be establishing a benchmark on the topic of diversity for the MEM industries.
By taking part in benchmarking, managers not only gain an overview of their current situation, but also recommendations for action tailored to the situation in the business to improve the recruitment process and sustainably support qualified workers.
The new «focus50plus» network promises to become a valuable addition to Swissmem’s activities. It is sponsored by the Swiss Employers Confederation (SAV) and supports businesses in sustainably and successfully utilizing the labour potential of individuals in the 50-plus age bracket with the help of a sophisticated and future-oriented generation management framework. At the same time, «focus50plus» is dedicated to ensuring optimal political, legal and economic framework conditions to support the leeway required for flexible and innovative work models in business.
