Der AVR informiert


All aboard with the AVR

The traditional but much-postponed AVR Party, which was scheduled for 2020 to mark the AVR's 70th anniversary, has now finally been held. The motto for the party was "Schiff ahoi"

How to contact P&C?

Various topics were covered at this year's AVR offsite meeting in May, and one of the takeaways was that Roche employees want to know more about how they can contact P&C.

Catering options in Building 2

From a delicious coffee in the morning to a drink after work − and everything in between. Tavero has come up with some great ideas to keep hunger at bay throughout the day in Building 2.


This new Augmented Reality (AR) Tour is a journey between the digital and the real world that makes art visible in new and innovative ways.

Robert Gray "AVR-President" and Justine Frank "AVR-Vice-President" introduce themselves!

As already informed, the President and the Vice-President were newly elected at the (virtual) General Assembly held in March.

Long-Service Dinner

Every year, the AVR traditionally holds a long-service dinner for AVR members celebrating their 25th or 40th service anniversary at the company in the previous year. Unfortunately, the past two years were anything but normal. We would have been delighted to hold the popular event. A great deal of effort went into planning and organisation – each time, to no purpose.

Roche Career Center

The RCC is a tangible example of co-creation in action. Colleagues from different P&C areas as well as employees from Business and AVR/AKR worked together to create a place where employees can explore and shape their work and life journey and take responsibility for their career.

Results elections of the AVR General Assembly 2022

Dear Colleagues As you already know, the 72nd Annual General Assembly of the AVR took place virtually today without the participation of the members.

The transformation of Building 10: from a workshop environment to the ABW office environment

After the workshop vacated the premises in April 2021, Building 10 started undergoing a transformation. Only three functions continued operating there while the work was in progress: warehouse logistics on the ground floor, the fire brigade on the ground floor and first floor, and Medical Services on the fourth floor. Thank you to everyone for putting up with all the inconvenience the building work caused.

Cross-border commuter information – Germany

As every year, the calculation of the Pension Fund's super-mandatory cover is approaching for German cross-border commuters; this has been liable to German taxation since 2016.

Exercise, team spirit and fun – that's bike to work!

Dear friends of Bike to Work In many areas of life, getting plenty of exercise is becoming increasingly important. Biking to work is a built-in daily fitness programme – it's healthy, inexpensive and environmentally friendly. This is why F. Hoffmann-La Roche Ltd is taking part in the Bike to Work Challenge this year once again. We invite you to cycle to work in May and June and get involved in the Bike to Work Challenge 2022.

Review – One year of the Addiction Squad

Under the slogan “Raising awareness, Breaking down taboos and Providing information”, the team – which was founded in early 2021 – put a renewed focus on prevention. The subject of addiction and the associated rise in debilitating stress became increasingly relevant with the start of the pandemic. In May 2021, the Squad launched an information event [DE/EN] on alcohol, consumption of which had demonstrably increased since the introduction of working from home and COVID-19.

Old age pensions from 1st and 2nd pillar are often overestimated

With the Helvetia pension check you see if your pension provision is keeping pace with your life. Our experts will be happy to help you. Including a competition.
