"10/2018 IKZ-News: "Family-friendly employer: Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung receives again the certificate for the audit berufundfamilie (work and family audit)"
On September 30, 2018, the Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ) was awarded the berufundfamilie audit certificate for further three years. The certificate is awarded to the institute for its commitment in the area of strategically oriented family and life-phase conscious personnel policy.
The prerequisite for certification is the successful completion of the auditing process offered by berufundfamilie Service GmbH, which initiates and pursues a systematic process of operational compatibility. In the auditing process, the existing instruments to support the compatibility of work, family and private life were evaluated and further company-specific measures agreed.
The renewed certification shows that the IKZ is continuously working on a family-friendly personnel policy. The Institute is dedicated to improve the framework conditions for its employees and to provide them with instruments with which family/private life and career can be better reconciled. This includes, for example, flexible options for the organisation of working time, whether it be daily working time or (temporary) part-time employment. A parent-child room is available to employees to bridge short-term bottlenecks in child care.
