In family-friendly companies, tasks are ideally distributed to teams comprising both full-time and part-time employees. In this way, all employees are always up-to-date.
Regulated depature and return to work
Family-friendly jobs are characterized by the fact that maternity leave, parental leave and stand-ins, as well as the preparation for a return to work, are regulated fairly and thoughtfully. Don't be afraid to address these issues in a job interview.
Usefull training measures
To ensure that parents have the same know-how as their colleagues, they should be offered training opportunities during or immediately after their parental leave.
Flexible working hours
Home office and part-time work solutions, as well as the ability to take time off using time accounts, are ideal for parents with toddlers to plan their working hours. The level of flexibility can be adjusted individually depending on the job.
Well thought-out childcare in the workplace
Close-to-home and supportive care, e.g. in a company kindergarten, helps parents focus on their job with a clear conscience and good feeling.
Fair work climate
In Germany, parents have the right to take time off work if their child is ill. In a team with good colleagues, such time off is therefore no cause for friction.
