The balance between work and leisure find my family, my house, my job for many workers, this is now equal. The career as the most important building block for a fulfilled life? It was once. Workers is”the so-called work-life balance, so the balance between work and leisure, today more important than ever before. For employers, that means that they need to create attractive jobs, they want to get further qualified forces in the company. In Meppen is the IT consulting company ConSecur, such models can look like: Home Office and alternative working time models are already a reality. If business goes to work Jens Wubker, he will not necessarily leaves the House. The 40-year old father is Director of sales at the Meppener ConSecur and works of two days per week in the Home Office. I can many things too – home well done.
When I create maps or documents, for example, I often do in my work room”, he says. A pleasant side effect: For the father of two children aged five and six years, the Home Office also means that he has more time for the family. Instead after work how many other dads in the traffic jam, he includes only the room door behind him. Since 2003 works wuebker’s for the ConSecur and is one of 20 employees. The consulting company Meppener developed and implemented IT security concepts for businesses and corporations. The clients come from throughout the country as well as the staff, so the ConSecur on a good networking is dependent on.
A real presence requirement is there if the projects require it, here only, as well as during the monthly meetings in Meppen. Otherwise, the employee can decide whether they do their office work at the company’s headquarters in Meppen, or in her own study. For ConSecur Managing Director Norbert Book this solution has proven itself in the past few years: for us, results are important, no attendance at the Office. Thanks to the telephone and Internet, we have a He says intense contact and the employees are motivated, because they feel that management trusts them and they can flexibly classified their work time”. This flexibility is also reflected in a further, more unusual working hours model: Margret Gebken and Heike Ahlers share the Secretariat post at the ConSecur, so work both on a part-time basis. But instead of sitting four hours a day in the Office, the women work just alternately. Thus arises a cycle which meets both very: A week full time working a week free. Every Wednesday is shift, then meet Heike Ahlers and Margret Gebken to pass, discuss what happened in the last week, and define tasks for the coming week. For a good year, so work the two women and are both very happy. The initiative for the creation of this model was doing by the way by the employees. We found the proposal useful, have tried it and found to be good,”says Norbert Book. Here it shows, that alternative models of work are quite practical. We have had only positive experiences and will continue to use in the future.
