MBI promotes a healthy work-life balance. The institute is certified as family friendly by the audit "berufundfamilie GmbH" since 2015; it has been re-certified in 2018.
In case of particular problems with childcare MBI offers its members of staff to use the parent-and-child office at the institute (according to internal user regulations). We also would like to draw attention to the day-care centers "Die wilden Knallerbsen" (German) and the facilities of the "Fröbel-Gruppe" (German). For further information contact the Equal Opportunity Commissioner.
On the webpages of the federal ministry for family, seniors, women and youth (BMFSFJ) you will find detailed informations on equal oportunity measures, family service time, parent time and financial support for parents as well as about many other important themes in this context ... including a rather useful "Calculator for parent support money".
