BALANCING FAMILY AND CAREER – NOT A PROBLEM AT CHG-MERIDIAN

Doreen Walter is able to pursue her career despite having two small children. She easily found a nursery place for her children thanks to our cooperation projects and agreements with childcare providers.

DOREEN WALTER | Internal Sales

Hello, my name is Doreen Walter. As a trained industrial clerk and business economist (WA), I worked as a sales assistant at an authorized dealer of forklift trucks in Dresden before my switch to CHG-MERIDIAN AG. I have been working in Internal Sales at the CHG-MERIDIAN AG headquarters in Weingarten since 2002. After the birth of my two children I again worked part-time in Internal Sales.

CHILDREN AND CAREER – NO PROBLEM AT CHG-MERIDIAN
Thanks to the support of CHG-MERIDIAN AG I was able to continue to pursue my career even with small children.

With the help of cooperation projects and the company position regulations we were able to find a day care place for our children without any problems. CHG-MERIDIAN AG supported me and my family with this great commitment. I kept contact with my colleagues even during parental leave and my children were always welcome on visits to the company. Thanks to training sessions and the support of my colleagues my knowledge was quickly up-to-date. All of this allowed a seamless re-entry.

FLEXIBLE WORKING HOURS GIVE ME THE FREEDOM THAT I NEED AS A MOTHER
I currently work 20 hours per week. The combination of family and my career gives me great joy. As CHG-MERIDIAN AG pays a part of my day care contributions, it is worthwhile to work part-time. I was able to put together my working hours after consultation with my colleagues and superiors relatively flexibly. For example, sometimes I only worked in the afternoon. If I have to stay at home because of the children from time to time, my home office connection is available.

A requirement for a seamless process is, of course, a certain continuity in my output and this is required by CHG-MERIDIAN AG. As a „representative of Internal Sales“ I am a contact for customers, suppliers and colleagues. Along with the administrative area of responsibility, such as the creation of contract documents, the answering of customer and supplier questions, cooperation with internal departments and occasional customer visits together with Sales colleagues are all part of my tasks in Internal Sales.

I LOOK FORWARD TO THE FUTURE
CHG-MERIDIAN AG makes it possible to unify career and family. There is enough time left over for both. I am excited for the further development of the company and look forward to being able to contribute towards this success with my job in future.
