Working time indicators provide macroeconomic data on the annual volume of actual hours worked for the entire Swiss economy and thus offer a basis for calculating productivity per hour worked. They also provide detailed data on the components of actual hours worked per job (contractual or usual hours, absences and overtime) as well as the number of weeks of holidays. Additionally, the FSO uses the concept of normal hours of work when aggregating the contractual hours of salaried employees and the usual hours of self-employed persons.
