Lippstadt, 12 November 2019. The lighting and electronics expert HELLA is one of Germany's best employers for families and women. This is the result of two studies carried out by the personnel marketing agency TERRITORY Embrace on behalf of the magazines ELTERN and BRIGITTE. The global automotive supplier based in Lippstadt, Westphalia, was awarded four out of five possible stars in each ranking.
"As a listed family business, the well-being of our 39,000 employees worldwide is very important to us," said Dr. Nicole Schneider, Managing Director Human Resources at HELLA. "Measures to reconcile family and working life and the targeted promotion of women are two important levers in this context. We are therefore pleased that our commitment in this area has now been confirmed once again by an independent party."
HELLA offers a wide range of services to improve the compatibility of family and career as well as to promote women. In addition to various working time models, this includes, for example, two HELLA daycare centers (HELLA Kinderhäuser), a parent-child office, flexible arrangements for people returning to work, and comprehensive employee advice. Various sports facilities as well as the HELLA Family Service complete the offer and support the organisation of child care.
Once a year, TERRITORY Embrace conducts surveys focusing on the working environment, childcare support, flexible working time models, careers with children and the importance of family friendliness and the promotion of women in the company. More than 140 companies participated in each of the two studies.
