Work & Family Alliance

Work & Family Alliance

Children are our present and without them there is no future. This requires a social climate in which children are welcome. Because family friendliness is not only a natural wish and justified demand of families themselves - family friendliness is one of the central social concerns of the present.

Ensuring a family-friendly life in Waldeck-Frankenberg is the mission of politics, business, administration and all social groups that help shape the living environment of families. The Regional Alliance Work and Family wants to make the situation of families in Waldeck-Frankenberg the focus of political and social interest across all generations from the childhood phase to old age - and continuously work together to improve the living conditions of families. This is also an important impetus for the economic development of the region.

    For more and more companies, the compatibility of work and family is one of the most important competitive and locational advantages. Every company that needs well-trained specialists and managers must offer a family-conscious personnel policy.

    In order to communicate this important topic to the public and companies and to raise awareness, the Regional Alliance for Career and Family regularly announces the competition "Family-friendly companies in the district". With a special honor and award, it would like to motivate companies to participate in the competition with their family-conscious measures.
