Equal Opportunities and Work-Life-Balance#
Fraunhofer FHR firmly believes that male and female employees should be offered equal opportunities, irrespective of gender, religion, ethnic origin, age or disability. At FHR, diversity is regarded as the enrichment and utilisation of your creative potential. Individually formed teams consisting of male and female employees of different age groups, cultures and disciplines promote a collegial environment and also increase the quality of our work results.
The ability to achieve a happy equilibrium between leisure interests, family and work lies at the very heart of the equal opportunities ethos. Employees who do not have an optimal work life balance are not in a position to offer exceptional and innovative services.
For this reason, all of our employees are given the opportunity to organise their professional activities in the most flexible manner possible. We offer
- family-friendly working hours with flexitime,
- various part-time working models,
- childcare assistance in the form of parent-child room, emergency childcare,
- support for active fatherhood (parental leave) and the
- provision of day care personnel
In addition, various sport and music groups have been formed within the institute and new members are always welcome.
