Work–life balance

Balancing work in and for science with life in and with the family is of utmost concern for us. As an employer our institute makes an effort to support the individual development opportunities– both private as well as vocational – of its employees. The particular projects, which aim to achieve this are detailed in our intranet. Examples of these projects are:

Parent-child office

Since March 2014 our institute offers an additional service for employees and visting scientist, which bring their child along as a visitor: the parent-child office in E2 01. It offers a place to play or sleep for your young ones, while mom or dad can work at the desk in peace. Of course, a changing table, as well as storage area for a stroller is also available in area E2.

Booking information is available in the international office or in our intranet.

Max Planck day care centers

We are glad to offer our employees with small children a special service: since May/August 2010 there are two day care centers in close proximity to the institute, in the Seeburgstrasse 62 and Talstrasse 18 for up to ten children under the age of three. These facilities offer special opening hours appropriate to the requirements of researchers and Max Planck employees take precendence over other applicants.

More information is available in the international office or in our intranet.

Since July 2015 the MPG, in terms of its family-friendly personnel policy, cooperates with pme Familienservice GmbH to offer child- and eldercare to facilitate a better work–life balance.

The consultation and facilitation services offered by pme Familienservice GmbH are free to MPG employees with contracts that last a minimum of six months, as the costs are covered by the MPG Only the immediate care costs for the selected services have to be borne by you.
