In 2010, the Nuremberg Metropolitan Region launched the Mehrwert Familie (Added Value Family) prize in cooperation with the Bertelsmann Foundation and the Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, awarding the first prizes to seven companies from the region. The winners included small businesses with less than fifty employees as well as major international corporations. All of them are ideal representatives of our family-friendly corporate culture.
In the Metropolitan Region's thirty-five alliances for the family, citizens, towns and cities, businesses, unions, foundations and many others are working to improve the situation for families even more. Both the region and its people benefit from this cooperation – become part of it!
The initiative “Familienbewusste Personalpolitik” is another growing network that attends to these key issues for the future. The initiative gives support for new ways in establishing family-friendly policies. It benefits from the great comittment of its members – be a part of it!
