Flexible Working Approach

When our employees are able to make the most of their talents in a corporate culture offering a greater degree of freedom, this correlates to greater company success. Flexible working conditions are a requirement for this. 

At Continental, around 90% of employees work on the basis of flexible working models. These include both part-​time and flextime as well as working from home or elsewhere, and sabbaticals. These options are intended to help create a satisfactory work-​life balance. They enable employees to actively shape their working world and utilize their skills in the most effective way possible in each stage of their lives. 

In this way, we meet the needs of our employees, the requirements created by digitalization and the challenges posed by demographic change.

Flexi-Time: This is a working schedule that allows employees to choose when they start and end their workday, usually to accomodate an individuals needs and other commitments outside of work.
Compressed Hours: This is where an employee increases the volume of hours worked each day in order to reduce the number of days worked.
Job Share: An arrangement where two people, or sometimes more, are retained on a part-time or reduced-time basis to perform a job normally fulfilled by one person working full-time.
Phased Retirement: This refers to an approach that gives employees the ability to manage the transition from full-time employment to retirement.
Hybrid Working (Office / Home): This means an employee splits their time between the workplace (usually office based) and remote working (usually at home).
Remote or Mobile Working: This is a type of working arrangement that allows an employee to work from a remote location outside of corporate offices.
Work From Home (WFH): This is where an employee has the ability to set up their workspace at home, and manage their work without the need to go to the office.
Office Working: This refers to an employee being physically present in the workplace to fulfil their contractual responsibilities.
Career Breaks / Sabbatical: These are an extended periods of agreed absence from work. The term is often used interchangeably with "sabbatical", which is generally taken to mean a shorter period of leave of several weeks or months.
