inovex Receives 'Family-Friendly Company' Award

Family-friendly HR policies recognised with award

(Karlsruhe, 11.12.2017) IT project experts inovex have been honoured with the 'Familienbewusstes Unternehmen' ('Family-Friendly Company') award, an accolade presented to particularly family-orientated companies on 5th December 2017.

Awards Ceremony

On 5th December 2017, in a festive ceremony held in Stuttgart's Haus der Wirtschaft building, 58 companies from the industry, service and social enterprises sectors were presented with the 'Familienbewusstes Unternehmen' award. Conferred by the familyNET project, the award recognises companies which have systematically implemented family-friendly HR policies. 

The awards committee evaluates each company's activities in the areas of leadership competence, personal development, work locations, working hours and job organisation, communication, benefits in kind, services for families, health and community involvement. The state-wide familyNET project is supported by the Ministry for the Economy, Employment and Housing, as well as by the Südwestmetall and Chemie Baden-Württemberg employers' associations.

'We are particularly delighted to have received this award, as it shows that the committee recognises the path we are deliberately taking. We want our employees to feel comfortable and to enjoy working here, and the key to that is achieving a good work/life balance', explains Jasmina Groeger, Head of People & Culture at inovex.

In order to facilitate this balance, inovex offers its employees various benefits. Every full-time position can also be made part-time, and working hours are flexible. Laptops and smartphones allow employees to work on-the-go, or from home at short notice. 'We don't have core hours, as we trust project teams to communicate amongst themselves to determine which tasks need to be completed when. What matters is the result – not who works where or at what time,' Groeger adds.

The honourees were selected by familyNET, whose decision in each case was based on a comprehensive survey, an in-person, on-site evaluation and interviews with multiple employees. inovex's family-friendly HR policies impressed both the auditors and the jury so much so that the company was given the award with distinction.
