As a progressive employer, the satisfaction of our employees is very important to us here at Babtec. Our benefits have the goal of creating the best possible work environment for our employees. Through intensive discussions and regular employee surveys, we stay in touch with the times – and very close to the real needs of our workforce.
If we work flexibly and on our own responsibility, we are more productive and happier. That's why we offer a high degree of flexibility in how you handle your working hours and your work location. Here, we fully rely on trust and on our team taking responsibility. This is why we now also completely dispense with core time and organize ourselves independently through a range of working hours (6 am to 9 pm) as well as service and meeting times. Compensation for overtime or reduced hours is also done on a basis of trust.
The option of mobile work on up to three days per week as well as individual part-time solutions are an integral part of our working environment - and of course particularly attractive for parents. In addition, our 30 vacation days ensure that free time and relaxation are equally taken care of.
Each day we learn more, develop ourselves further and become new and more experienced people. Babtec supports its employees in becoming a little better every day.
In order to catch on in our working environment, each new employee is assigned a mentor for their initial work period. The mentor makes the start of work for our brand-new colleagues as easy and comfortable as possible and provides them with any assistance that might be needed initially.
Each person is unique and requires the support that is exactly suited to them. That is why we attach great importance to individual advancement. Thanks to interesting further trainings and continuing education options tailored to the individual employees, we work together with our employees to get the best from each of them.
“Be the change that you wish to see in the world.”

We are absolute fitness fans, and the health of our employees is dear to our hearts. That’s why we regularly organize health days, during which well-known experts provide practical tips for the daily work routine. Our company physicians will also assist you through consultations and medical examinations to feel not just good but in top shape as well.
Through our cooperation with the company fitness expert Hansefit, you can count on our full support for your health not only at work, but also in your free time. Whether fitness studio, sports courses or sauna – in the unique sports network, all sports enthusiasts will find their individual way to stay fit and healthy.
For all those who already want to get out in the fresh air on their way to work, we offer a financially supported Jobrad. In that way, you not only avoid crowded streets, but also support your own health and the environment. And you can do this whenever you want: on the way to work, in everyday life, on vacation or when doing sports.

We all know that money alone doesn’t make you happy. However, a company car or the latest smartphone won’t make you unhappy either! Some of our employees spend a large part of their working time outside of their workplace – on the way to or at our customers’ premises. So that these employees can enjoy a pleasant work atmosphere, Babtec provides, depending on the position and area of responsibility, a comfortable company car as well as the latest generation of smartphone – both also for private use, by the way. One can live well in the field, too!
We spend a large amount of our lifetimes at our workplace. Thus it is particularly important that we feel comfortable in the workplace and can work there with concentration.
With much attention to detail, our in-house designers have created work environments where employees can feel comfortable. A congenial atmosphere and easy-going communication are well integrated into the spacious and bright office areas. Our Work Places are renovated on a regular basis and refurbished so that we can work in healthy and enjoyable surroundings. In the current round of furnishings, Babtec is providing each department with ergonomic chairs, which are designed using the latest research in sports science, as well as desks that are height-adjustable at the touch of a button. In our Creative Spaces, there are appropriate furnishings for every kind of meeting – whether imaginative brainstorming in the Creative Playground or innovative thought experiments in the Think Tank. The Free Spaces are available to every employee for a small break from their desk or a spontaneous get-together. Our locations in Wuppertal and Villingen-Schwenningen are barrier-free.
“The people who get on in this world are the people who get up and look for the circumstances they want, and if they can't find them, make them.”

Only together are we successful. That is why the work environment is especially important to us. Regular team events of our initiative “Babtec and Life” as well as company days across our locations strengthen our team spirit – and our internal transparency.
But our sense of community does not stop with the satisfaction of our employees. We are happy to pass along the fruits of our labor to the little ones in our society. With the employee initiative “Quality and Life”, we enable children of preschool and primary school age to take a big step forward to having equal opportunities in media and language. Babtec provides our employees the option of spending time on this project during their working time.
“Coming together is the beginning. Keeping together is progress. Working together is success.”
(Henry Ford, founder of the Ford Motor Company)
