Work Life Balance
On 29th March 2010 the IPK received the certificate "berufundfamilie". The official ceremony was presented on the 11th June 2010 in Berlin by the Federal Minister for Family Affairs and the Minister for Economic Affairs.
With the certification the IPK gets a seal for family oriented personnel policy. During the auditing process we identified the already existing family friendly offers at the Institute. Over the following 3 years more offers will come, including organisational, informative and financial support for families to be able to balance work and family life easier. The topic will be communicated inside and outside of the IPK to raise the awareness of family friendly policy. Cooperations with communal institutions and networks will help to implement the family friendly measures.
