eos.uptrade awarded with the ‘Hamburg Family Seal’
“We are very happy about winning this award and the results of our survey shows us that we are doing a great job when it comes to family friendliness”, said Wiebke Burrichter, Head of the People Team at eos.uptrade, who organised and monitored the audit.
In the run-up to the award ceremony, selected employees took part in a survey whether the company had implemented family-friendly work policies. The topics included parental leave, return from parental leave, flexible working hours (full/part-time), home office options and flexibility during the lockdown.
“As a company, we attach great importance to the well-being of our employees”, Wiebke Burrichter continued. “We want to support our staff in every way possible, especially in difficult times like these. This includes offering every opportunity to make families’ daily lives as easy as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Whether in the form of parental leave or reduced working hours, also for fathers, or the possibility of working flexibly from home. We are open to all family-friendly measures and are always happy to receive input in this area. We try to implement all suggestions if possible.”
The Hamburg Senate, the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce and the Hamburg Chamber of Crafts are working together to establish Hamburg as a family-friendly city in Germany. Families are an asset to any city: they strengthen social cohesion and make it easier for people to look after each other. The goal of the Hamburger Allianz für Familien(Hamburg Alliance for Families) is to make Hamburg a city where families enjoy living and working.
The ‘Hamburg Family Seal’ is an award presented by the Hamburg Alliance for Families since 2007. The award is given to companies whose family-friendly work policies offer their employees a sustainable work-life balance, the type and scope of which is reasonable for the company when taking into account the company’s purpose and size. Since the Hamburg Family Seal was first awarded, the Alliance has honoured 370 companies with around 35,000 employees.
