Goal 1: No poverty
A private employee hired with quitt is assured of insurance coverage and the correct payment of social security contributions, which provides protection against loss of wages in retirement and in the event of an accident.
Goal 5: Gender equality
96% of the domestic workers hired with the help of quitt are women, and they must be protected. By employing them correctly and fairly, we create safer working conditions for them and contribute to women’s economic independence.
Goal 8: Decent work & economic growth
With a gross wage of CHF 30.28, a private employee earns on average about CHF 10 above the minimum wage and 50% more than someone employed by a cleaning company. The employer and the domestic help determine the wage and work schedule mutually.
Goal 16: Peace & Justice strong institutions
