Committed to the common good
As a family run company that has been located in Neuhausen in the Filder region since 1921, we are aware of our responsibility as an employer and member of society. We are happy to get involved in a variety of ways, mainly in regional projects. As diverse as our involvement may be, it always pursues one goal: Balluff GmbH would like to contribute to the common good.
Our youth – our chance
The young people of today will be the pillars of our society tomorrow and deserve - not just for this reason - corresponding appreciation. Demographic change makes it clear: They are the key to counteracting the predicted shortages of management personnel. Balluff is already involved in efforts for children in kindergartens and primary schools. Furthermore, Balluff maintains cooperative programs with schools.
To make it easy for our employees with children to return to working life, we work together with the "Nesthäkchen" day care center. Nesthäkchen is the first professional day care in Neuhausen to take care of infants and toddlers up to three years of age. It was created in 2007 in cooperation between Balluff and the municipality of Neuhausen. The Nesthäkchen day care's doors are open to the children Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Of course, children from the Neuhausen community will be taken care of in addition to the Balluff children. You can find more on Nesthäkchen here www.kez-neuhausen.de/nesthaekchen.html.
With Technolino the employers' association Südwestmetall is promoting a playful approach to science and technology in primary schools and kindergartens. In the context of Technolino, Balluff cooperates with several kindergartens in Neuhausen and also makes financial contributions. Furthermore, our trainees have developed programs that explain to preschoolers how sensors work in a clear way during a visit to the company.
Educational partnerships with schools
Balluff has educational partnerships with several schools from throughout the region. Assisting students in entering into working life is the goal of these partnerships. With a large number of projects in the schools as well as in the context of company visits and information sessions at Balluff, we supplement the teaching content with career-related topics. Our etiquette training, which prepares the students for job interviews, is always particularly well received.
Balluff would like to get girls and young women excited about technical careers. On Girls’ Day we offer girls ages 11 to 16 the opportunity to find out more about the working world and technical careers. Come to the next Girls' Day at Balluff and find out more about various occupational profiles that are also not "typically female" jobs.
Balluff sponsors local cycling. This includes the support of the cycling and driving club "Rad- und Kraftfahrerverein Neuhausen/F e.V." in organizing the "Neuhausener Radkriteriums um den Großen Preis der Balluff GmbH", a cycling event in Neuhausen.
