Familiy friendliness as cornerstone of corporate culture

Family compatibility is still an essential challenge for modern job culture. Companies try to create a balance that enables employees to coordinate career and family. The modern working environment at Biogena is based on a framework of cultures and values. Family compatibility is the tenor of the business and of the CSR oriented management. The company with its main location in Salzburg counts on the combination of quick but also long term efficient measures that enable the employees to promote their strengths and unfold their personality.

  • individual, flexible working models and home office opportunities
  • free jobticket for public transport
  • further training such as e.g. personality development, resilience or stress management
  • support for children day care during the summer holidays
  • full commitment of the management to family, including all relations – particularly children, partners, relatives and social responsibility such as care, education.


Children are also very welcome in Biogenas “future workplace” – not only in exceptional cases. In Biogena’s company hub in Salzburg, a much-approved space was created for parents and children. The “star nest” and the “future nest” are ideal for parents who want to use a child-friendly environment at their workplace.

„A family-friendly working environment is one of the most important corporate aspects for a better future. This is why we support every initiative that contributes a compatibility of career and family in Austria. This also complies with our corporate mission: Help as many people as possible to live a fantastic life, in accordance with the third sustainable development goal of the United Nations “Good health and wellbeing”, explains Dr. Albert Schmidbauer, CEO of the Biogena group, the intense commitment.

Good health and wellbeing for the whole team

As employer, Biogena offers many more services for its employees: the in-house „Social Service Center“ that is a contact point with a trained social worker, the ecologic bistro offers a healthy lunch and the „dinner for one (or two)“ that is especially appreciated by working mothers. Low-priced massage and shiatsu as well as different sports offers take place in-house and can thus be integrated flexibly in working life.
