Energie AG supports a good balance between work and family life. Except for the Waste Management and Czech Republic segments, the company has been certified via the “berufundfamilie” audit since 2012. This allows us to position ourselves as a family-friendly employer, gain advantages in the competition for skilled professionals, and help to create a positive working environment by means of the associated raft of measures for management and employees.
The Active Parental Leave Management programme supports our Austrian employees in planning the periods they will be off work. A nursing care platform offers comprehensive information and service links for employees who care for and support dependents. To make holiday planning easier, Energie AG supported its employees in summer 2019 by providing a varied programme for children between the ages of 6 and 14. Our Kids Day on Easter Tuesday also gave the parents relief on one day of the school holidays. Since the 2013/2014 fiscal year, Energie AG has been congratulating employees who became parents on the birth of a newborn by sending a baby gift package.
At the PowerTower in Linz, former smoking areas on several floors of the building have been converted into contemporary common areas since late summer 2018. Designed, furnished and equipped with a wide range of activities in mind, staff can simultaneously use the areas to work on individual projects, have one-to-one discussions and work together in small groups.
