Balancing work and family
As a family-owned company, it is particularly important for us to help our employees balance family and work. B. Braun already offers family-friendly working hours models in many companies in different countries. 2,865 employees took parental leave in 2022. The percentage of men taking parental leave has continued to increase in recent years.
A European company agreement adopted in 2013 and renewed in 2018 created the framework for concluding agreements for part-time family leave in the individual countries. Our employees have the possibility, for example, to temporarily reduce their work hours with B. Braun’s family part-time work model to take more time to care for people in their family. In the reporting year, 1,494 employees in 11 countries took
B. Braun‘s part-time family leave, which was revised to accommodate a changing environment.
