HZDR - Familiy Support Office – service point for balancing work and family life

Improving the compatibility of career, family and private life is an important step for institutions to provide attractive conditions for working mothers and fathers. The Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf is granted by the non-profit Hertie Foundation with the certificate „berufundfamilie” (audit career and family) which shows the family-friendly personnel policy of the center. In 2008 the center was successfully certified with the “audit berufundfamilie” (audit career and family) for the first time. For a better embedding the administration department has established the HZDR - Family Support Office which is responsible for the coordination and implementation of the objectives which are given with this policy. Furthermore, the office works to realize the goals that have been set within the framework of the 'audit berufundfamilie' (audit career and family).
