Angela Bürkle | Design engineer
This makes it easier for me to concentrate fully on my work and I find it comforting to know that I could get to her quickly if need be.
Thanks to our kindergarten, which is integrated directly on-site, I have the ideal solution for reconciling my part-time job as an engineer with the care of my daughter. The kindergarten takes children from the age of 3 months on, so every mother is able to resume their career very quickly. I myself, however, decided to delay my return to work, coming back after two years instead, and Transmission Systems (formerly Getrag) was fully supportive of this decision too.
Not only is my daughter professionally and lovingly cared for thanks to the many facilities and wonderful carers, she also does not feel too alone because I am close by and she is aware that “Mummy is here, too”. This makes it easier for me to concentrate fully on my work and I find it comforting to know that I could get to her quickly if need be.
The wonderful atmosphere the children produce in the building is truly unique: through the open windows of the meeting rooms you can hear the noise of children playing in the background, and the random glimpse of the children makes so many colleagues smile.
I also think it is nice that the children gain a little insight into the professional world of the adults. Isn’t it wonderful to think that one of them may one day become a “new addition to the Transmission Systems family”?!
