Work-Life-Balance

 

We want you to be able to balance your career with your personal obligations and desires, such as childcare or a long-awaited break. At Infineon, you decide together with your supervisor how, when and where you work. Flextime models, the chance to take a sabbatical, on-site childcare and more make it easy to strike a balance for most positions and at most locations.

Working from home: The right balance between professional goals and individual freedom

Flexible work arrangements give our employees the opportunity to reconcile their professional goals and private interests with the company’s requirements. We do everything we can to ensure that Infineon is an attractive workplace, because we know that this is crucial for the satisfaction, motivation and performance of our employees.

Flexible working hours: Personal responsibility instead of monitoring

Most of our employees – except those doing shift work – are free to decide for themselves how to schedule their workday. The concept of flexible working hours is part of our corporate culture, because we know that personal responsibility and individuality lead to higher creativity and productivity.

Part-time work: Flexible and tailored to individual needs

Part-time work is not only for families with children. We offer various part-time work models that are designed to meet the requirements of our employees, while also ensuring that the company’s interests are fully served. Depending on a person’s particular phase of life, this can involve more time for voluntary work, hobbies and the family, or for care-dependent relatives. Partial retirement is an attractive alternative for older team members to gently decrease their full-time workload and continue to share their knowledge with our up-and-coming talent.

Sabbatical

Travel the Silk Road, learn Spanish, write a novel – very often, a sabbatical is the best way to fulfill one’s dreams. When people take an extended time away from work, they return with fresh ideas and a new level of dynamism.

Family matters to us

That's why we place great value on creating a family-friendly workplace. Family-friendliness goes even further at Infineon – we also support you in caring for your relatives. In accordance with German national care laws, we guarantee your right to exemptions from work obligations. Our offer:

  • Care for your little researcher: In all large German and Austrian locations, as well as in Singapore, we have company kindergartens or cooperate with nearby daycare centers. Additionally, we look after your children during holiday periods – for example, at the Munich location. Across the globe, we offer different region- or site-specific programs and activities, such as family activities and counselling services.
  • You can switch to part-time hours following or during your parental leave and work from home when necessary. We offer extensive coaching to come up with an appropriate plan.
  • Keep in touch with us: You can also access our intranet during your time off so that you can stay informed about the newest company developments.
