It's an important concern to the GFZ that its employees find a good balance between their work and their family lives. We believe that ultimately, it must be made possible for each individual to fulfil obligations from both spheres without neglecting either of them.
With this in mind, the GFZ offers its employees flexible working time models and provides places for the children in daycare facilities. In addition, we regularly offer back-to-work positions in the scientific areas.
The GFZ is a member of the corporate network "Success Factor Family", an initiative of the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs and the Germany's leading industry associations and the Confederation of German Trade Unions (DGB). This membership is an expression of the GFZ's dedication to the compatibility of work and family life.
