Staff interviews

We assess the past year and give honest feedback in annual employee meetings with respective superiors. Objectives for the coming year are jointly discussed and recorded. Salary increments, personal development goals and further training measures are also discussed.

Vehicles for frequent travellers

Frequent travellers have the opportunity to access a company car which can also be used privately. Special conditions apply.

Subsidy for lodging

We pay our employees fixed amounts (per diem) for working outside Rostock.

Our employees have the possibility to access subsidised meals at two canteens within Rostock.

Pension

SEAR has contracts with two major pension funds with a positive reputation. Employees are thus able to make savings for their future by using income tax and pension payments. SEAR GmbH contributes its own share to the pension fund, i.e. when €100 is deducted from one's pay, €120 is paid into the fund.

Equal representation

Participation and contribution is a tradition in our company that has had long and good standing. Since Germany's reunification, the executive management and works council have dealt openly and honestly with each other. Members of our works council are fully trained and perform their duties responsibly.

Communication

Flat hierarchies and open doors lead to quick decisions and responses. Regular information, e.g. via the company's intranet or at business meetings promote communication across all levels.

Flexible working hours

Projects often require a high level of time and effort. To be able to react flexibly in peak periods, we have introduced employee attendance accounts with which employees can record accumulated overtime. Employees have the benefit of using hours accumulated during overtime in leisure time.

Appointments and personal obligations relating to e.g. childcare cannot be kept within a 40 hour week. Flexible working time models or shortened working hours enable us to bridge this gap.

SEAR is a family-friendly employer. The SEAR works agreement stipulates that the company will pay a monthly subsidy of 150 Euro per child to its employees in addition to their monthly salary, for children under school age below school age for are costs in a nursery school or similar institution.

Employees have the opportunity to take a longer break sabbatical from work (longer break). This period should be between 3 and 6 months and must be coordinated individually with the respective supervisors, taking into account operational requirements.

Mentoring system

A mentoring system was introduced at SEAR GmbH at the beginning of September 2014. New employees are offered technical and social facilitation to help them integrate into the company.
