Umicore has been awarded the Berufundfamilie certification for the fourth year in a row for its operations in Hanau and Rheinfelden in Germany. Umicore was presented with the certificate by Germany’s Federal Family Minister Manuela Schwesig.

Carsten Neumann, HR manager at Umicore, is proud: “We are delighted with the berufundfamilie certification. Our goal is to create awareness at all levels of the company…and to pursue efforts to maintain a healthy balance between work and family life that are a benefit to everyone. The ability to bring the career and personal life into harmony helps us attract new employees and increases the attractiveness of the company for the existing workforce.”
