Certificate "audit berufundfamilie"

The Thünen Institute has been awarded the "audit berufundfamilie" certificate since autumn 2021. The quality seal of the non-profit German "berufundfamilie Service GmbH" confirms our claim to a family- and life-phase-conscious personnel policy.

The existing offers for our employees include flexible working hours, diverse part-time models, home office and teleworking. In addition, a parents' initiative at the Thünen campus in Braunschweig offers childcare in the kindergarden "Krümelkiste". Furthermore we cooperate with a company social counselling service.

Further projects will be implemented by autumn 2024. The evaluation and further development of the regulations on working hours is planned, but also the support of caring relatives, the expansion of video conferences as an alternative to business trips as well as part-time management are on the agenda.

The "audit berufundfamilie" certificate is awarded for an initial period of three years. During this time, the practical implementation of the target agreements is reviewed annually. Across Europe, around 1,800 institutions and universities hold the "audit berufundfamilie" certificate.
