Great joy at Leibniz-IWT: On 15 March 2020, the institute will receive the nationwide certificate of berufundfamilie. The award was preceded by an intensive preparatory phase in which a selected project team, together with the Directorate and an external consultant, drew up objectives and a catalogue of measures. These are now to be implemented over the next three years.
With the "berufundfamilie" certificate, Leibniz-IWT is taking a further step towards preparing for the demands of the future. Finding and retaining good employees is an important issue - for scientific institutions too. Supporting the compatibility of work and family is a decisive factor that makes an employer attractive for employees. This is why Leibniz-IWT has been involved in the continuous development of these topics for years. Since 2016, the institute has already carried the Bremen seal of "ausgezeichnet familienfreundlich".
