Supporting work-life balance through family support policies, nutrition and sport
Since 2008, the Company has been a member of the "Erfolgsfaktor Familie" network, a nationwide network of companies committed to the provision of family-oriented HR policies, and offers a flexible family support model. This aims to ease the return to work after parental and maternity leave. Employees at the Group's headquarters in Metzingen have places reserved at two child daycare centers and the option of obtaining financial support for alternative childcare arrangements. A total of 178 employees benefited from the family support program in 2013.
As a responsible employer, HUGO BOSS is particularly concerned about the health of its employees. To sensitize employees to topics such as healthy nutrition, exercise or reducing stress, and to support practical initiatives, an annual health day is held at the headquarters in Metzingen with various presentations, workshops and exhibition stands.
Food at work is another area in which HUGO BOSS makes a fundamental contribution to health as an employer. The campus restaurant offers a balanced nutrition concept with menus that change daily and a large selection of fresh fruit and salads. Employees can also seek the advice of a nutrition coach.
In addition, all employees at the Group's headquarters can work out at the Company's own fitness studio and take part in subsidized courses. The football field and the beach volleyball court are also very popular with employees in Metzingen. In 2013, almost 1,000 runners took part in the 10th HUGO BOSS Run in Metzingen.
