Advisory Services for Employees

Hinschauen. Ansprechen. Handeln!

Difficult situations in employment relationships can arise – among team members, leaders and managers alike. All UZH employees can contact the following advisory centers if they are affected by or witness to inappropriate behavior. The services are free of charge.

The important thing is to address the situation as early as possible.


We, the HR experts at UZH, can support you on several levels: HR representatives in the faculties and central services units are your first points of contact in the event of friction at the workplace.

For issues outside of your organizational unit and any potentially larger problems in working relationships, contact HR Business Partners at the Human Resources department. We will address your problem in a one-to-one consultation, propose ways of finding a solution, and initiate measures if necessary.
