Prestigious award for Medela Germany

Medela Germany among best companies for families in 2019

In partnership with Germany's most widely read magazine for young parents, ELTERN, personnel marketing experts from TERRITORY EMBRACE ran a large-scale employer survey to find "The Best Companies for Families" in the country. Medela Germany made the top tier, scoring four out of five possible stars.

Focus on five areas

In an online questionnaire custom-designed for the survey, 141 employers with a combined workforce of over 950,000 answered 45 questions covering five main topics:

• Flexible working hours on five areas
• Childcare facilities, such as daycare at the office
• Flexible working hours
• Career opportunities compatible with parenthood
• Priority level of family-friendly policies in the company

Medela Germany walks the talk on being a family-friendly place to work

Awarded four out of five possible stars, Medela Germany was recognised for its strong track record not only on having family-friendly policies (in theory) but also on how popular these are with the company's employees (in practice).

Medela Germany scored particularly highly on part-time work, parental leave and re-entry, childcare benefits, flexibility in working hours and mobile work.
