Since 31 August 2016, BNITM has been awarded the "Career and Family" certificate for its measures to reconcile work and private life. Further steps to support personal life phases are set out in a target agreement that will be implemented over the next three years.
BNITM strives to support the family life of its employees by offering flexible working hours, the possibility of part-time work or working from home. A laptop is available for employees to borrow for mobile working. The internal organisation of the institute is also family-friendly. Seminars and meetings, for example, are scheduled in the mornings and early afternoons whenever possible, to make it possible for part-time employees to attend.
The BNITM contributes to the costs of childcare in a day-care centre within the limits of the law and also reimburses additional childcare costs incurred in connection with official duties. And thought is also given to the future of employees. During parental leave, the Institute continues to pay the contributions for the company pension scheme.
