Benefits for DÖRKEN employees

Innovative, fair, familiar and transparent – these words describe us well. DÖRKEN combines the advantages of a family company with the benefits of an innovative and international orientation. Every employee at our company is given a large amount of freedom to explore new ideas and become immersed with their tasks and responsibilities. Team work is taken as a given in our working environment, and it’s an important cornerstone of our success.

Holiday leave and pension plan

As an employee of DÖRKEN, you are entitled to 30 days of holiday leave per year. We also pay a fixed holiday bonus once a year.
We are also happy to inform you on subsidised company pension plans, which offer you additional assurance above and beyond the statutory pension at particularly favourable conditions.

Work-life balance

People take centre stage at DÖRKEN. The outstanding achievements of our employees would not be possible without a healthy work-life balance. That is why we offer working hours that leave enough time for your family. If necessary, various part-time models give you the freedom to look after children or family members in need of care.

Our employees do not have to hide their family responsibilities. Rather, they can integrate them naturally in their professional lives as required. For instance, there is a parent-child room on the factory premises in Herdecke, which can also be used as a breastfeeding room.

Our cooperation with BUK Family Service allows us to offer these services, whose expert team supports our employees with advice and organisation services. Among other things, we offer the summer DÖRKEN Holiday Camp for 3- to 12-year olds in cooperation with BUK GmbH. It also provides support on the topics of childcare and caring for relatives.

Reside and live

We will be happy to help you find an apartment or look for the right childcare facility. The Herdecke metropolitan area is home to twelve childcare facilities, two of which are right beside our factory premises on Wetterstraße. Good choice of schools, from primary schools and secondary schools to Rudolf Steiner schools, can be found not only in Herdecke, but also in the neighbouring city of Hagen.

Health is our most valuable possession, and we have to protect it: Company health promotion measures are a high priority at DÖRKEN. Our occupational health specialist regularly offers free blood pressure measurements or blood analyses on the company premises in Herdecke, and can refer you to local medical specialists if required. We also bear the costs for many medical check-ups.
We also have confidential contacts to provide advice and support for those suffering from addictions or debt.

‘Team fitness’ is the name of the programme comprising back exercise classes, cardio fitness and many other sporting activities, which we offer in rooms on our factory premises in Herdecke.
