Benefits at BASELABS
At BASELABS we believe that a pleasant and collaborative working environment enables our employees to achieve exceptional results and to stay highly motivated. That’s why we place great importance on giving each employee the most flexibility and responsibility possible, strengthening team spirit, and making the work itself more enjoyable. The following benefits provide an insight into what we offer to all our employees.
Employee orientation and Appreciation
"With the founding of BASELABS in 2012, we had the vision of creating a fulfilling and long-term meaningful working environment in which every team member is intrinsically motivated to work for the success of our company. I am extremely pleased that we are continuing to succeed in maintaining our focus on appreciative communication and further expanding our special corporate culture, even as the team size increases. I am very proud of this feedback from our employees and the resulting award as "Great Place to Work®."
(Robin Schubert, 37, CEO)
A family-friendly Environment
Most of our team members have young kids and everybody understands the challenges of building a career and having a family at the same time. We offer a work environment in which parents encounter understanding and open-mindedness regarding family obligations.
"My two children are a great enrichment for me and I am very happy, but they also cause one or the other restless night. I have decided to stay at a 40-hour week, because at BASELABS I have the feeling to accomodate a number of things. BASELABS is very keen to start and end meetings on time. Thanks to the flexible working hours, I can organize everything optimally."
(Maren, 37, Head of Marketing)
Open Company Culture with a maximum of individual responsibility
Our culture is based on trust between employees and the company. Open communication and diversified, challenging tasks are key aspects of our teams. Each individual team member is encouraged to contribute his or her ideas and to try out new concepts. Our offices have an “open-door” policy and different spaces offer the opportunity to meet for coffee and exchange ideas.
„At BASELABS, I was given a lot of confidence early on, when I was able to specialize in functional safety. Today, I am interacting with partners on an equal footing, shaping the future of the company in this area."
(Stefan, 30, Technology Manager Series Software)
Flexible Working Hours
While working at BASELABS is a major and important part of every team member's life, our private lives are considered equally important. Employees at BASELABS have the freedom to choose their working hours and some working hours can also be carried out from home. Along with the freedom to choose one’s own working hours comes the responsibility to do so in a way that takes into account the needs and demands of the team.
"I appreciate the possibility to adapt my working hours very flexibly. This allows me to balance my private needs and my professional goals. I can integrate things like sports, errands or craftsmen at home into my everyday life or simply take an afternoon off for leisure activities."
(Marcel, 35, Business Development Manager)
We place great importance to regular training and further development. Usually, the initiative is on the part of the employees and BASELABS supports by covering training costs and working hours. In Addition, Business English training is held every week in our office space, where every employee can participate free of charge.
Company Retirement Plan and Occupational Disability Insurance
At BASELABS, safety is not only a top priority in software products. In order to provide employees with planning safety, we offer occupational retirement provisions and optional occupational disability insurance.
For the employee, this has the advantage of saving taxes and still being able to make a comprehensive retirement provision.
"I greatly appreciate that BASELABS offers me the opportunity to take out a company pension plan.
In particular, the fact that I can also take out occupational disability insurance gives me and my relatives greater security."
(Martin, 35, Software Developer)
Employees meet regularly for outdoor activities and sports and have a lot of fun at our frequent team events. Typically, four team events are held each year. Join BASELABS on Facebook to gain insight into BASELABS’ activities.
"Our Teamevents are always a great opportunity to spend time with colleagues outside office hours and get to know each other better. Especially for new employees it makes the entry into the team much easier."
(Marcus, 33, Head of Team Customized Projects)
We would like to share the success of BASELABS, which is the success of all employees, with the team. Therefore, BASELABS has made an additional payment based on the company’s profit in the last years.
"I think it's good that BASELABS has its employees involved in the company success. In this way one feels valued and motivated in his work to give his best."
(Christian, 34, Project Manager)
Reduced Working Hours
We know that every life stage presents a new challenge to organization of working time. That is why we want to give our employees the opportunity to work out individual part-time models.
"I live with my family outside of Chemnitz, away from the urban hustle and bustle. Despite a longer road it is important for me to spend a lot of time with my daughter (3). I have therefore decided on a part-time model. I appreciate that BASELABS makes it possible to adjust the working time to the individual circumstances of the employees."
(Andrea, 34, Manager Quality Processes and HR Marketing)
Social responsibility is an important issue for us. Every employee is entitled to an annual donation amount, which he or she can donate in his own discretion for an eligible purpose.
"I am privately engaged at the NABU. Therefore, I find it particularly important that BASELABS gives me the opportunity to decide which organizations benefit from the donations."
(Katharina, 33, Project Manager Tooling)
