Compatibility of Different Areas of Life

Best Practices

A high degree of self-determination in the choice of working conditions supports employees at all hierarchical levels in aligning their professional activities with other areas of life and its associated responsibilities. On the one hand, access to external or in-house childcare services and the option of job-sharing play a central role in supporting compatibility. This applies to both women and men as well as to positions with a high level of responsibility. On the other hand, there is a whole range of models for flexible working arrangements: these include, for example, flexible forms of scheduling work time (“flexitime”), flexible choice of work location (“flexiplace”), variable workloads adapted to life situations and events, parental leave, or unpaid leave. Discuss the needs of your employees with them and find a solution that works for both sides!
