DATRON signs charter for the compatibility of work and care

One of the great advantages of DATRON's corporate culture is that the competencies of the company team are distributed across all age brackets. Therefore, DATRON AG is not only concerned about the compatibility of family with children and career. With increasing maturity, many people often have to face new challenges in everyday family life.  Therefore, DATRON signed the charter for the compatibility of work and care on 20 October 2022 - like 295 other companies in Hesse by now.  At the official charter ceremony in the Haus der Wirtschaft Hessen in Frankfurt a.M., the State Secretary in the Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs and Integration, Anne Janz, welcomed a total of 15 new companies that will actively fill the initiative with life in their everyday business.

At DATRON, the primary concern is not the economic objectives of "business continuity", when employees have to reduce their weekly working hours due to acute private care requirements or are temporarily absent altogether. By officially joining the Hessian initiative, the machine builder from southern Hesse underscores its already active social corporate culture, in which everyone is there for others. Many other employers in Hesse have only now recognized the explosive nature of the topic of care.

DATRON AG has been consciously cultivating its attitude of openness towards the concerns and needs of its employees for a long time and has already made possible very concrete, individual compatibility offers for caring employees in the past. Signing the charter is now a further step toward a systematic and sustainable commitment to reconciling work and care. And it is an ideal companion to the company's already established work-life balance policy. 

"As a family-friendly company, we support our employees in caring for their relatives at any age. Young parents and their start with their own family are just as important to us as more mature employees who are caring for their own parents or close relatives," commented Martina Fluche, Director of HR at DATRON AG.

About the work and care charter

The initiative was launched in 2013 by the Hessian Ministry of Social Affairs and Integration together with AOK Hessen, berufundfamilie Service GmbH and Bildungswerk der Hessischen Wirtschaft e. V. To date, 295 Hessian companies - from small craft businesses to large enterprises - have joined. They assume social responsibility, raise awareness of the compatibility of work and care, and participate in the development of viable solutions that are equally fair to caring employees and employers. By signing the charter, Hessian companies, authorities and institutions are signaling their willingness to support and relieve the burden on caregiving employees. In this way, they are laying the foundations for a sustainable organizational and corporate culture. The charter companies have access to networking meetings, specialist events, qualification programs and skills training.
