Personnel.

Nothing would work without them: the employees of SBB and its subsidiaries across over 150 professions. Selected indices of staff, figures on diversity of personnel and on training, professional re-orientation and social issues at SBB AG and SBB Cargo AG, moreover, demonstrate the importance of SBB as a responsible employer. Diagrams on the number of staff, employees according to age and years of service complement this array of figures.
