Time and organization

We use flexible worktime models to make life easier in particular for employees with families but also for older employees, retain their expertise within the company and make our company more attractive to prospective employees. For example, in January 2017, we began piloting the Flexi 95 model for managerial employees, which facilitates intelligent part-time working at senior management levels. Managers reduce their working time to 95%, initially for two years, with a corresponding adjustment in their pay. As a result, they are entitled to 13 additional vacation days each year. These might be used, for instance, to look after their children when schools or daycare centers are closed. At the same time, the model aims to strengthen our managers’ awareness of part-time options for their employees and to increase general appreciation of this worktime model. 35 employees took part in the project in the first year. In view of the positive response, we intend to extend this model to further employee groups in the future.

With the aim of enabling flexible working hours for all employee groups, we are also currently developing part-time models for production employees. In countries throughout Europe, in Australia, Brazil, in Asia and the US country specific flexible working hour arrangements are in place. In view of the digital transformation we actively create a feasible framework for mobile working arrangements according to regional and operational requirements. Managers and employees have the option to work either from home or from other suitable locations in order to support work-life balance and business needs.
