Career & family

ERGO aligns with families

We are convinced that success on the job can go hand in hand with planning a family – when the conditions are right. We make it easier to combine family and career with company agreements on flexible working conditions and attractive flextime models.

Many offers for you

  • You can arrange your workday flexibly with variable working times.
  • Your flexibility is further increased with home-office options.
  • Day care is provided during scheduled school breaks in Germany – and there are parent/child offices at all major German office locations.
  • The same applies in case of emergency.
  • In cooperation with an independent service provider, we support you in finding suitable day care options in Germany, including kindergartens or nannies.
  • We also offer solutions for phases during which you must care for needy family members.
