Flexible working hours

During your working life, we promote your personal flexibility through flexitime models, teleworking and mobile working, or even sabbatical phases via a lifetime working time account according to your individual needs - whether you want to take a longer trip, spend more time with family and relatives, or enter retirement gently. If you need time to care for family members, we offer leave of absence in accordance with the German Caregiver Leave Act (Pflegezeitgesetz). You don't have to choose between family and career - we want you to be able to combine both.
