    Child care

    Various Voith sites cooperate with local kindergartens to give working parents child care options or offer a crèche on-site. To help parents are covered in an emergency, several sites run an emergency child care scheme. Others maintain a dedicated parent-child room where parents can keep an eye on their child while working.

    Health and wellbeing

    We encourage healthy lifestyles. Health services vary from site to site, but we offer preventive health care check-ups and health courses in addition to medical advice from company doctors. A healthy diet is the cornerstone of good health: We strive to provide healthy and balanced meal options in our staff restaurants. Many of our Voith companies offer a discount for gym memberships. Many enthusiasts meet in company sports groups to play football, run together or go for bicycle tours.

    Retirement savings plans

    Increasing life expectancy and sinking birth rates have caused cutbacks on employee benefits to statutory pension systems. To fill retirement-income gaps, many Voith companies in the US, Canada, Brazil as well as in the UK and Germany offer a range of workplace pension schemes.
