We're only as good as the highly qualified and motivated people who work for us. This is why consistent continued education is such an important component of working for Harro Höfliger. Our supervisors encourage and support the professional and personal development of our employees with a targeted program of suitably advanced education measures.
We offer our employees a working time account that allows you to save time or your gross salary for the future. The time you save can be used for longer periods of absence (extension of parental leave, nursing care for family members, continued education, and from 2020 also sabbaticals) as well as for a flexible transition into retirement. During their leave of absence, employees continue to be insured under social security, receive their salary and continue to collect retirement points, thus they have no insurance gaps.
The number of days for school breaks generally exceeds the number of vacation days that working professionals can take. This is why we offer our employees the opportunity to allow their children to attend a variety of supervised vacation programs during the summer break. In addition to sports, play and fun, children can also experience nature and outdoor activities. Harro Höfliger contributes to the costs of the summer vacation program, which has been getting a positive response from both parents and children alike year after year.
We offer our employees the option to lease bicycles and battery-powered bicycles – widely known as e-bikes – at attractive rates. The monthly fees are charged as a salary conversion from the gross salary, which is why the net charge is significantly lower than if purchased or leased on the private market. We take care of the insurance costs. The idea behind this e-mobility concept is to promote health and the joy of being active amongst our employees, while at the same time making our own contribution to the environment.
Our company health management program (BGM) supports all employees with a variety of measures and programs with which to maintain the quality of life at the workplace and to even improve upon it. This includes, among other things, regular classes on health management or keynote presentations of topics such as nutrition, physical activity and relaxation. BGM is a dynamic process, that focuses on the needs of employees.
In order to ensure that our employees can maintain their standard of living even during their retirement years, they are given the opportunity at Harro Höfliger to set up a deferred compensation retirement account in the form of direct insurance. Contributions to capital formation (VWL) at Harro Höfliger can also be used for the company retirement plan.
