Wage level in Switzerland

Streamline your finances with Numarics' AI-powered solution

Switzerland is a country that is known for many things — including wages that leave many people breathless. But what exactly do these numbers look like and what do they mean for you? Let's get to work digging into the data that could impact your wallet.

A kaleidoscope of merit

Regardless of whether you work in the manufacturing sector or earn your money in the service sector, Switzerland offers a wide range of wages. The median, i.e. the figure in the middle of all figures, is 6,665 francs across Switzerland — that is the point at which half of employees in Switzerland earn more and the other less.

Who earns what?

Are you working in the energy sector? Then you might be one of those playing with a median salary of CHF 8,335. Or what does it look like when you work in education and teaching? The median here is CHF 8,494, which shows that education is definitely appreciated.

The situation is different in health and social services: Here, the median is CHF 6,466, and in the art sector, creative people have to make do with a median of CHF 6,404. Not to mention those in the hospitality industry, where the median is CHF 4,482 — that's probably where the tip is even more important!

Perhaps you work in the construction industry and are wondering where you stand in comparison? With a median salary of CHF 6,299, you're pretty much in the middle of the Swiss salary spectrum. Or do you work in retail? At CHF 5,692, the median wage there is once again slightly lower.
