In a constantly changing world, remaining competitive and effective means regularly developing employee skills and anticipating those that will be needed in the future to care for the patients of tomorrow. The HUG also feel that improving the employability of their employees is their responsibility. They are therefore committed to encouraging and supporting people who want to develop their careers, whether in their own industry or another field of work.
At the heart of this process, in 2015 the HUG training centre began an in-depth project in collaboration with managers from various departments and professional sectors. The objective? To offer each and every employee a personalized training programme adapted to their role. These are currently being finalised and will allow everyone to define - along with their manager - a personal career development plan, based on the needs of the sector and the expectations of the employee. A quarter of the institution's 180 professions has been mapped to date.
In 2015, the HUG training centre organized 442 courses for a total of 1322 sessions on 16 different topics. More than half of employees at Geneva University Hospitals took part in at least one internal continuing education activity, for a total of 13,190 cumulative training days. This represents an average of 9.4 hours of time spent in training per year per employee.

Enhancing the employability of an employee also means encouraging them to develop their skills by enriching their tasks and responsibilities. The HUG have therefore begun to roll out a job exchange scheme between units and services, giving staff the opportunity to work - for a given period - in another department.
