We offer our employees attractive offers to help them achieve a better work-life balance. Achieving this requires more flexible, family-friendly options, effective health promotion and not least, embracing work-life balance in our corporate culture. In Germany, the range of offers includes the following:

Work-life balance is also promoted at our national companies. In addition to mobile working and flexitime, we offer individual models and measures: In Croatia, the SmartWork model was implemented in June 2020, allowing all employees to organize their working environment and conditions to suit their individual needs. In Hungary, we are also committed to maintaining a healthy work-life balance by reducing overtime or promoting flexible working hours. The most suitable working models are selected together with the employees.
In Austria, there are company childcare facilities and holiday childcare programs for the employees’ children. The OTE Group in Greece offers summer camps with sports, entertainment and creative activities for children during the holidays. At our Croatian national company, it is a tradition for employees to bring their children to work on a special day and show them around their workplace. In addition, all first grade parents get the day off on their children’s first day of school so they can accompany them as they start this new stage in their lives. Employees in Singapore can go home early on one Friday in the month, and use this “Eat with Family Day” to have dinner with the family and spend more time with them.
There are also a variety of initiatives to promote health, such as online yoga classes and back health care in Spain or fitness activities as part of the “Healthy me” program in Romania. In 2020, we expanded our physical and mental health service offerings to give our employees special support during the coronavirus pandemic. In South Africa, for example, we launched the “We care” program aimed at making it easier for employees to deal with the new situation and mobile working. In Greece, we also set up a medical hotline to answer questions related to Covid-19, and created special mental and emotional counseling services.
