Work-Life Balance

There are many reasons for juwi’s success. The employees contribute a large part to the positive development of the company.

Hence, it is part of juwi’s philosophy that employees enjoy working. Paths for walk, benches, a BBQ, as well as a soccer and a volleyball field, a day-care centre and a room for prayer and contemplation guarantee a well-balanced work life.

The juwi group moved into a new building in summer 2008. The complex offers places for work and communication as well as spaces for creativity and relaxation. There is a day-care centre called "juwelchen" as well as a room for prayer and a cafeteria. “We want to promote

communication beyond our business premises and improve the compatibility of work, leisure and family“, says juwi CEO Fred Jung.

juwelchen – juwi's Day-Care Center

Here, the youngest juwis set the tone while mum and dad work in an office next door. There is adequate space for 25 children in the two-story building. The center is based on an open pedagogical concept and offers day-care for kids from zero to six. This and the generous opening times (7.45 am to 6pm) help to create family-friendly structures and allow parents an easy reentry into working life. Due to high registration numbers, juwi is planning an extension of the center only one year after the initial opening.

 

Like all juwi buildings, the day-care center generates energy with solar modules on the roof and the front facade, and all windows are insulated. A small turbine in the outdoor area is indicating where the energy of the future will come from.

The Oasis – a Space for Relaxation

Escape from the hectic rush of everyday life, breathe deeply and relax. All juwi employees have the possibility to relax, to pray and gather strength for the coming duties in the Oasis. The Oasis symbolizes the possibility of finding rest in the midst of the demands of everyday working life to recover from the hectic rush and activity. The spiritual glass creation by artist Eberhard Münch is an eyecatcher in the building. The suptly depicted cross integrated into the colourful windowpanes symbolizes the Christian Faith on the one hand, while lending an adequate and individual character to the devotanial space on the other as it sets the scene with bright sunlight.

 

 

Fit for Everyday Life – Sports

In addition, the employees can also get active in a fitness centre. They can participate in professionally instructed courses or work out on the 17 machines – which are all powered by the kinetic energy generated during usage.
