Working environment

Promoting and supporting a positive working environment is important to us. In addition to the area of work, we also include other areas of the employees' lives. The compatibility of these areas of life is the focus of our actions. This applies in particular to the compatibility of family and work. We accompany and support our employees in stages of life in which aspects of life become particularly important that are not directly linked to the pursuit of a profession. To this end, we offer our employees extensive individual support in finding solutions. For example, we make it possible for mothers to return to work after maternity leave so that they do not miss the connection on the one hand, and on the other hand so that they can retain and consolidate valuable know-how in the company. Management functions for mothers are also supported and expanded.
