Work-life balance

Part of a good working environment includes the worldwide expansion of our wide range of programs to better combine career and family. To compete for specialists, we are responding to the differing needs and life stages of our employees. We offer, for example, flexible working arrangements – which include flexible working hours, part-time employment and mobile working.

Our regional initiatives meet the needs of our employees at a local level. In this regard, we are expanding the capacity of company childcare at our site in Ludwigshafen from 70 to 250 children, and in Münster to 20 children. The childcare center in Kassel has the capacity for 14 children from six months to ten years of age. We are building centers for work-life management at our sites in Ludwigshafen and in Münster, where we will offer childcare, social and elder care counseling, and health and fitness programs.

BASF Sozialberatung (BASF social counseling) provides support to employees who find themselves in difficult personal situations, helping them to maintain their employability. We have offered social counseling hotlines for employees in Asia and South Africa since 2011.
