Work / family balance

In order to ensure our performance for the long term, we are committed to the well-being of our employees through every stage of life. We create a work environment that enables them to balance their personal life and career plans. This is not limited to family planning, but also includes issues like caring for dependants. It is important for us that our employees are in the right place at the right time. In order to identify potential areas of improvement in balancing personal and professional commitments, we take part in regular certification by the Germanberufundfamilie Service GmbH.

In addition to flexible working hours with time-savings accounts, various flex-time models and occasional mobile working, we offer professional counselling and expert support for childcare and care of dependent relatives through cooperation agreements with various employee assistance organisations. External experts are also there to help with personal emergencies or problems of all kinds. There is also a parent-child office available at short notice, and we offer emergency childcare where necessary.

To better bridge the time taken out for family leave, and to make it easier to return to work, we developed a three-phase model. It provides for well-coordinated planning prior to the leave, stay-in-touch measures such as a parental leave newsletter, invitations to events during the leave, as well as for meetings and talks with executives prior to the return. Managers are prepared for these and other measures with a seminar on “Family friendliness as a factor to success”, included in our manager development programme.
