Work Life Balance
The compatibility of career and family is a central component of our institute´s culture. We aim to make our working conditions family-conscious and life-phase oriented. That´s why, we offer a range of support options:
- Flexible working time models
- Opportunity of part-time work
- Mobile working
- Contact to Kitas to find childcare opportunities
- Support with re-entry after parental leave
- Dual career options
- Individual support in the care of family members
In 2013, we were awarded the berufundfamilie audit certificate for the first time. We successfully defended it in 2019.
In addition, the LIN is also involved in the KitaPlus network office of the City of Magdeburg and helps promoting the idea of reconciling work and family life - most recently, for example, at the Demography Congress of the State of Saxony-Anhalt where Thekla Thiel was invited to a panel discussion as Administrative Director.
