Family and Career
Many experts in the field of management have come to the conclusion that workplaces that insist on long hours from their employees may be sacrificing long-term health for shortterm gains. Research also suggests that conflicts between career and family are related to decreased productivity, lost work time, job dissatisfaction, increased health risks for employed parents, poorer performance of the parenting role, absenteeism, poor morale, reduced life satisfaction, and depression. While career-family conflict is commonly viewed as a women's problem, more companies are beginning to recognize that both men and women feel the impact of career-family conflicts. You wish to be not bothered by above troubles and combine family and career flexibly? Then the HCH Group is the right company to work for.

Satisfaction with different needs
Flexible and demand-actuated solutions are required for all target groups, as lifestyles and role models have changed substantially in recent decades. An increasing number of women do not wish to choose between career and family, but to combine these as best as they can. The HCH Group sees herself as family-friendly company. Far beyond legal requirements the HCH Group offers employees varied possibilities of combining career and family flexibly and according to their needs. For example part-time models, home office work stations and the individual planning of child care periods.

Balancing Work and Family
People who work out of their home often have to devise methods in which they can both attend to the needs of their business and provide adequate attention to their children. Family-responsive policies and programs will be necessary to attract and retain needed employees and to build competitive advantages. In this respect, HCH has several steps that can be taken to assist employees in meeting these twin challenges.

● Establish a family-friendly business -- This sounds simple, but in reality all businesses are not created equal. Some may provide a parent with significant freedom in structuring business around his or her children's schedule, while others may not provide nearly the same level of flexibility.
● Communicate with spouse and/or others--Establishing and maintaining a business requires changes in the routines of all family members, not just the entrepreneur. Changes in travel schedules, household chore allocation, and other areas of family life may all need to be made. The key to making sure that such changes are made with a minimum of disruption and/or resentment is open, honest communication.
● Make maximum use of free time -- Home-based entrepreneurs can dramatically increase their productivity--and keep a lid on feelings of frustration--by scheduling demanding and/or important work obligations for times when child supervision obligations are minimal. Nap times, pre-school sessions, extracurricular programs, etc. can all provide parents with valuable windows of opportunity to attend to vital work-related matters.
● Enjoy your family -- Many business owners may create such a situation for themselves for the express purpose of spending greater time with their mates or children, yet find themselves feeling frustrated with the demands on time and energy that those people inevitably make during the course of every day. Our counselors urge home-based entrepreneurs not to lose sight of why they made the decision to operate out of the home in the first place.
