"Recognition for our efforts: awards for G+D"
We do more than just talk about work/life balance and lifelong learning – we also put our ideals into practice. Our employees have been benefiting from this for many years. The many awards we have received tell us that we’re on the right path.
berufundfamilie (“work and family”): certified as family-friendly
The not-for-profit Hertie Foundation certifies sustainable, family-aware HR policy under the aegis of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology and Ministry of Families. G+D in Germany received its first basic certificate in 2004, and since then we have been successfully re-audited five times, affirming the sustainability of our commitment to compatibility between work and personal life plans. Fathers on parental leave, managers working part-time, and employees on sabbatical prove the success of our HR policy.
German Education Award: talented individuals develop further with us
It’s important to keep momentum. For this reason, we have been investing in comprehensive training measures for our employees for some time. And we are so successful at it that we received a Deutscher Bildungspreis award as a company of excellence for the first time in 2014.
