More Henkel Corporate Reporting 2015
The life of our employees is full of unexpected events in which professional advice, guidance or temporary support are needed. The balance between work and family life is very diverse and requires a large variety of inventive and appropriate solutions and implementations. Take, for example, the issues of childcare and eldercare.
With its three company daycare centers “Die Waschbären“ (The Racoons) (left), “Gerda Henkel“ and “Kleine Löwen“ (Little Lions) Henkel is able to offer over 220 full-day spots in Düsseldorf to employees with young children.
In 2015, the first Henkel company daycare center outside of Germany was opened in Bratislava, Slovakia. Childcare places for 100 children from two years of age were created here. From the left: Jasmínka, Alisa and Ema let their imaginations run free while drawing at the new Henkel company daycare center.
In addition, Henkel Social services offers individual counseling as well as organizational and preventive services to support actively a work-life balance for all employees. In order to meet the needs and requirements of our various sites, tailored support is offered by external service providers to the employees. Henkel looks back on a long tradition of family-friendliness in the company. This is supported by professional assistance for all employees in setting up suitable problem-solving strategies in challenging situations.
