"For many employees, the compatibility of family and career is a decisive factor when choosing an employer. By awarding the seal, Freundin gives its readers an orientation in today's job market and at the same time honors the family-friendly policies of the award-winning companies with comprehensive coverage in the magazine and online," says Freundin editor-in-chief Anke Helle. Editor-in-chief Mateja Mögel adds: "Especially in a year like this, it becomes clear how important the value of family friendliness is for employers in order to successfully weather even crisis situations. For the award-winning companies, it is a great appreciation of their employees and shows how responsible they are.”
Yenia Zaba, Director Global Communications & Brand at kununu, explains: "Digitization means that employees are becoming more and more flexible - but at the same time they actively demand this flexibility from their employer: home office and flexible working hours are coveted benefits that distinguish family-friendly companies.”
The employees at Yamaichi also appreciate these values: "YAMAICHI ELECTRONICS combines professional success with time for the family. Flexible working hours allow me to watch my two sons grow up, and that is very important to me," emphasized Matthias Loichinger, who completed his training as a technical product designer at Yamaichi and is now working as an IT specialist.
