Reconciling work and family life
The aim of the "Reconciling work and family life" programme is to work together with the social partners, employers' associations, associations of trade and industry and the local authority level to create a family-friendly living and working environment. The focus here is both on family-friendly HR policies in businesses and a supportive family-friendly local infrastructure.
The programme is geared towards building networks of committed businesses, active and leading stakeholders from employers' associations and associations of trade and industry, trade unions and municipal central associations, as well as local networks of policy-makers, the business community and welfare organisations.
In the new ESF programming period the programme will continue the catalysing work of the ESF programmes launched by the German Ministry of Family Affairs to achieve a better work-life balance, particularly the "Success Factor Family" business programme with the attendant business network, and the "Local alliances for family" initiative, and will optimise them further.
