This year - and for the sixth time - EMG Automation GmbH in Wenden, a wholly-owned subsidiary of elexis AG, once again offered holiday care for the children of its employees during the first two weeks of the summer holidays.
The event was aimed at children aged five to twelve and took place daily from 8 am to 5 pm. The eighteen children in total were looked after by three educators who put together a varied programme on the company premises with indoor and outdoor games, sports activities and creative handicrafts.
"As a family-friendly company, it is important to us to support the parents in our workforce with reliable childcare. Because the long summer holidays in particular are a challenge for working people when it comes to looking after their school-age children. The once again great response shows that our offer is well received," explains CEO Dr Rolf Merte. "We are proud of our committed and qualified employees. That is why we do a lot to offer them attractive jobs in the long term. A family-conscious personnel policy is therefore very close to our hearts."
During the "scavenger hunt" through the company organised by the EMG trainees, the children were able to solve all the riddles and find a treasure chest at the end. Other highlights were the two day trips. In the first week they went to Altena Castle and in the second week to Bad Marienberg Wildlife Park. On the last day, there was a colourful closing party with the parents.
