The Komet family: The name says it all.

Working time models

Working time models

The possibility to work from home and flexible working hours are but a few of the options available to our staff to help them combine a busy work schedule with family commitments. These measures can, of course, only be implemented if the nature of the job allows it. Our managers are always happy to adapt the working hours and conditions of our staff members to suit their respective phases of life. This has to be decided according to the circumstances of each individual case, but we are proud to say that so far we have always found a mutually satisfactory solution.

Marriage

Marriage

We have been presented the “Family-friendly Enterprise in the Metal Industry of North Rhine-Westphalia” award, and as such, we are happy to give our members of staff a financial bonus when they get married, for example for their honeymoon.

New additions to the Komet family

New additions to the Komet family

We welcome every new arrival with open arms. Apart from a financial bonus, new arrivals to the Komet family receive their first Komet outfit. All parents look forward to their first baby, yet in some cases, worry about the forthcoming responsibilities or even dealing with all the paperwork involved can dampen the joy. Pregnancy and prospective parenthood always bring up many questions, doubts and uncertainties. In order to at least facilitate the bureaucratic side of things, we have compiled in close cooperation with the local FABEL service a “pregnancy folder” for our staff. This folder contains all necessary forms and informative literature on babies and parenthood.

We cooperate with the “Bodelschwingh Familienzentrum”, a daycare center in immediate vicinity of the company. Once they are old enough, the children of our employees are entitled to a place at this crèche.

FABEL service

In order to support our staff in all aspects of life, we have enlisted external help as well. The above mentioned FABEL service provided by the authorities of the district of Lippe supports our staff in all phases of life and finds solutions to any problems they might encounter. Financed by the company, this service is anonymous and can be used by all our employees.
