Employees must be able to strike a balance between career and family. As
a family company, we know how important the balance between
professional commitment and personal plans for the future is. In 1993,
we received an award naming us the most family friendly company among
large firms in all of Germany. Thanks to a flexible work model, an
innovative flextime concept, part time and work at home positions, we
enable our employees to find the right balance for them.
In an effort to ensure that our employees’ children are well cared for
during working hours, we reserve places in nearby childcare facilities.
Work-life balance is a fixed and practiced part of our company
philosophy in every respect.
We attach great importance to diversity and consciously apply it both as
a way to exploit opportunities and as a success factor. Our company’s
products are used in more than 190 countries worldwide, exposing us to
diversity on a daily basis. We believe that it is essential to
appreciate the differences in culture, language and mentality as part of
our corporate culture and to embed this in the mindset of all our
Creative talents of different nationalities shape our company and enrich
it with their diverse professional and life experience. A continuous
exchange of ideas is part of our everyday routine and constantly
provides new impetus. We use our diversity to learn from each other and
make our company successful in the long-term.
We embrace diversity and view it as an important part of our corporate
culture as was reflected in our signing of the diversity charter in
November 2008. Each year, we select projects which take us one step
closer to achieving this goal. We would like to present two of these
projects from 2008 in more detail.
