The compatibility of work and family is a concern for employees more than ever today. But to really experience it in everyday professional life, it takes more than just nice talk. It’s necessary for companies to truly commit to a family-conscious personnel policy. Germany’s Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) founded a company network, “Erfolgsfaktor Familie,” for just this very purpose. It is the central platform for companies in Germany that are interested and committed to family-conscious personnel policies. We at kreuzwerker are proud to have been invited to become part of this joint initiative between the BMFSFJ and the German Chamber of Industry and Commerce (DIHK).
Almost from the very beginning, the compatibility of family and work has been a corporate anchor of kreuzwerker. Among other benefits, we offer all colleagues flexible work time models. Our family-friendly offer does not only apply to mothers and fathers with small children, but to any family situation. We have always seen ourselves as a company that regards its employees as people with private lives. Thus, parties and excursions are organized, and offered not only for the kreuzwerker employees, but for the whole family. By connecting to the network, we can provide our own experiences, but also access experience from over 7,500 affiliated companies. This is a great benefit for all those involved in bringing the topic forward, and raises public awareness even more. We at kreuzwerker support the goal of establishing family friendliness as a trademark of the German economy with our deepest conviction.
kreuzwerker founder and director Tilmann Eing, who is living proof of compatibility of family and work by the management, will remotely speak about the topic on 15 September 2020, which is the “Company Day 2020: Compatibility as a Compass in Turbulent Times.”
