Under the motto "more freedom of choice for working parents", Federal Minister Christine Aschbacher honoured 110 Austrian companies and institutions for their family-friendly commitment on 28 January – WINTERSTEIGER AG was the only company from the district of Ried.
In order to be awarded the state quality seal, WINTERSTEIGER underwent the "Audit berufundfamilie", which evaluates existing family-friendly measures and determines the need for lack of support. "We have already introduced many measures to improve the compatibility of family and career, such as mobile office arrangements, educational leave and time off. Our next steps are to promote childcare and we are increasing the possibility of working hours flexibility in production," reports Paul Scheran, Head of Human Resources.
"With a large number of individual measures, we want to offer our employees the opportunity to reconcile family and career in the best possible way. We are convinced that only the holistic perception of our workforce, both as employees and as private individuals, will bring the best possible synergy effects to light," says Harold Kostka, member of the WINTERSTEIGER Management Board and responsible for Human Resources.
