Certificate for the audit berufundfamilie

Börde County receives quality seal for personnel policy

On May 31, 2018, the district of Börde received the certificate for the audit berufundfamilie. Around 300 companies, institutions and universities were able to receive their award for a family- and life-phase-conscious personnel policy at the nationwide certificate ceremony in Berlin on June 27, 2018. As part of the audit berufundfamilie, the Börde district is developing measures to improve the compatibility of work, family and private life.

The issue of reconciling work and family life is an important component of a successful personnel policy. The district of Börde has decided to develop new goals and measures for a better compatibility of work, family and private life. This is done within the framework of the audit berufundfamilie. The successful auditing was rewarded with a certificate on 31.05.2018 - the seal of quality with a three-year term. On 27.06.2018, the certificate was awarded to the Börde district in Berlin.

The aim of the auditing is the long-term anchoring of the family-conscious and life phase-oriented personnel policy in the corporate strategy, the recruitment and retention of staff as specialists and managers in a competitive labor market environment, to use and implement the existing measures or bring them to life, to enable managers to act uniformly and thereby to shape the family- and life phase-conscious corporate culture in the long term, to improve employee satisfaction, to enable quality of life and live individuality and to create a binding and at the same time appreciative corporate culture.

The award honors 300 companies, institutions and universities. They had successfully completed the audit in the previous twelve months. The award will be presented by Dr. Franziska Giffey, Federal Minister for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, John-Philip Hammersen, Managing Director of the non-profit Hertie Foundation, and Oliver Schmitz, Managing Director of berufundfamilie Service GmbH.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the berufundfamilie audit, the seal of quality for a family- and life-phase-conscious HR policy. Launched in 1998 on the initiative of the non-profit Hertie Foundation and expanded in 2002 to include the audit familiengerechte hochschule (family-friendly university), it is still the unique management tool that employers can use to sustainably shape their compatibility policies. To date, 1,700 companies, institutions and universities have made use of the audit.
