Reconciliation of work and family life
Reconciliation of work and family life

Hereon has been a "berufundfamilie-audited company" since 2008.
We have already reached a high level of maturity with our family- and life-phase-oriented human resources policy in terms of measures to reconcile work and private life and are striving for further measures.
In addition to a wide range of childcare options, a company health management system and opportunities for professional development, we offer flexible working hours and extended home office options.
For example (as of 30 July 2023), approximately 65 % of employees work part of their working hours independently of location.

And we're taking part again!

With the Future Day, we want to take the opportunity to give the younger generation exciting insights into our centre, research and our training professions.

Various projects await the pupils, such as building an electronic cube or the fascinating role of the oceans in the fight against climate change.

We are looking forward to a great future day with many interested pupils!

With us you work in the green
and this is how you get there...

The Helmholtz Center Hereon has its headquarters in Geesthacht. About 800 of the 1,100 employees work there. The site is located about 20 km from Hamburg, surrounded by greenery and beautifully situated on the slopes of the Elbe River.

How do you get to us?
There are many ways: by bike (well-developed bike paths), by car (finding a parking space is not an issue here) and, of course, by public transport:
Currently, HVV express buses run hourly in just 30 minutes, for example, from Bergedorf's ZOB at the S-Bahn station directly to our campus. No need to change buses, instead you can read, chat or relax in comfort.
Alternatively, from the ZOB Geesthacht, the buses take just under 10 minutes to Hereon. more
