Compatibility of family and career: RENOLIT SE receives certificate for family- and life-phase-conscious personnel policy
The Worms-based company successfully passes the "berufundfamilie" audit and defines target agreement
Worms, 24 March 2023 - RENOLIT was awarded the "berufundfamilie" audit certificate for the first time for the strategic design of its family- and life-phase-conscious personnel policy. The certificate, which is considered a seal of quality for a company compatibility policy, is awarded by the board of trustees of berufundfamilie Service GmbH. The prerequisite for certification is the successful completion of the associated auditing process, in which the status quo of the family- and life-phase-conscious measures already offered was determined and the company-specific potential was systematically developed.
Within the scope of the audit, not only strategic goals but also concrete measures were defined, which are recorded in a target agreement. The measures are based on the individual needs of the employees. During the three-year certification period, these measures must be implemented according to the needs of the employees. The practical implementation is reviewed annually by berufundfamilie Service GmbH.
Measures already established at RENOLIT to reconcile work, family and private life include a holiday programme for employees' children, the appointment of an equal opportunities officer and the introduction of a counselling hotline to which employees can turn for help with professional and private problems.
"In the auditing process, it was particularly important to us that all our German locations were involved in the development of the measures," comments Markus Blümle, General Manager Corporate Human Resources. "Work and family is a very personal and also individually very different topic. That's why it's important to take the diversity of needs into account."
