Conversations with both Swiss and ex-pat managers working in Switzerland, however, show that this is not the whole story. With its system of direct democracy, companies in Switzerland need to be particularly sensitive to the public sphere as its citizens have a powerful voice in shaping the countrys business environment. This book is geared towards international executives in the Swiss economy. It is also designed to serve as an introduction to the economic and political particularities of Switzerland, where dialogue between business executives and policymakers as well as society plays a decisive role.
