Getting your family off to a good start

Having children changes your life in lots of ways. To enable you to continue to focus on your work, we offer several attractive child care options – plus a range of models for parental leave.

  • Parental leave
    Parental leave arrangements can vary from a complete break from work to working part-time. You will define the exact details in consultation with your manager and HR – including discussing your return to work.
  • Shared daycare facilities
    At its Aachen site, Grünenthal joined forces with four neighboring companies to set up its own daycare center nearby in 2014. The bilingual daycare facility (German and English), which has space for 70 children, was developed by the non-profit organization educcare.

  • Holiday clubs and other family services
    Working with an external partner, we offer professionally-supervised holiday clubs for children during the summer and autumn fall breaks in Germany and at other sites. There are also a variety of other family services that our employees can take advantage of.
