A leading economic player, HUG employs 11,148 people, which is equivalent to 9,312.9 full-time jobs. This figure is rising in line with the integration of the Joli-Mont and Montana Clinics. Seven out of ten staff members are female. Four out of ten employees work part-time. In 2016, HUG hired 907 people.


Training is one of the HUG's key missions, conducted in collaboration with the University and Higher Education institutions.


The Joli-Mont Rehabilitation and Internal Medicine Division is involved in the postgraduate training of residents at the General Internal Medicine Division (SMIG) and at the Trois-Chêne Hospital, which is carried out as part of their four-month rotation in rehabilitation.

During their rotation, the organization of the Division offers residents the opportunity to attend postgraduate training symposiums organized by the SMIG, in parallel with training symposiums organized on site.

Attracting and retaining talent

To attract and retain talent, every employee needs to feel fulfilled at work. This means recognising and enhancing their individual skills, creating a motivating environment, and providing a strong incentive to make progress in their career or to progress within the HUG, as well as paying special attention to achieving work-life balance.

Succession planning

Training is one of the HUG's three key missions, alongside research and care. They make it a point of honor to contribute to the emergence of new professionals, not only in the field of healthcare but across all of the various activities that the hospitals represent.

The benefits of an "error room"

To strengthen training, the HUG pharmacy came up with the idea of setting up a fictitious patient bedroom containing errors related to the preparation and administration of injectable drugs. At the same time, an e-learning module was developed based on research.
