Focus on work-life balance: Flottweg again named the most family-friendly company in 2023

Reconciliation of career and family life, flexible working hours and work-life balance are playing an increasingly important role for employees: Flottweg has now been named one of the most family-friendly companies in the mechanical engineering industry in 2023 for the third consecutive year by freundin and kununu. Companies from 27 industries in Germany and Austria were evaluated according to a special set of criteria to examine the family-friendly approach of employers. This year, the seal of quality was awarded for the seventh time by freundin and kununu. In total, more than 3.2 million ratings of 300,000 companies in Germany and Austria were included in this year’s study, providing the basis for the ranking.


The award was greeted with enthusiasm by the separation technology specialist: “We attach great importance to offering our employees a workplace with the optimum work-life balance,” explains Head of HR Michael Jakob. “A firmly established working-from-home model, a child care allowance and our flexible working hours scheme with flexitime are just some of the many benefits we offer our employees. This makes Flottweg one of the most popular employers in the region, and we are proud of that.”


Family-friendly criteria as an important factor for employees

Anke Helle, freundin Editor-in-Chief, explains how important a family-friendly approach is for employees: “For many employees, the compatibility of family and profession plays an important role in choosing an employer. With the annual ranking of the most family-friendly employers, we aim to provide our readers with an overview of companies that perform particularly well in this respect,” adds Mateja Mögel, also freundin Editor-in-Chief: “Work-life balance, working from home and equal opportunities in the workplace have long ceased to be criteria that only people with children expect from their employers. The younger generation in particular also demands a flexible and respectful working environment. Every year, our ranking shows that many companies are setting a good example in this area.”
