Fact 2: German SMEs are family-minded

A healthy corporate culture also means taking employees’ commitments outside their jobs into account – especially challenging family situations. The SMEs realised this long ago and are continually extending their family-friendly policies. These include flexible working hours – as well as the possibility of working from home, or even taking sabbatical leave. Surprisingly enough, even during the severe economic crisis of 2009, these small and medium-sized businesses remained as family-friendly as ever and even stepped up this policy in many domains.
