Working in a quiet environment

The LHI headquarters in Pullach im Isartal near Munich is embedded in nature. We took a conscious decision after our previous location near the central train station to look for an environment with less noise and pollution to allow us to work in peace and enjoy the possibilities nature offers on our doorstep during our breaks.

Thanks to the S-Bahn connection, you can be in the city centre in 20 minutes.

Many employees also use the good network of bicycle paths and cycle to work in Pullach. There are showers and changing rooms in the building for the employees.

To work in the LHI Group, however, you do not have to come to the company headquarters every day. As part of our flex-work arrangements, you can also work offsite.

 

Working in the LHI Group - a reliable relationship

We want the people who shape LHI to work for us in the long term.

As a rule, new employees receive a fixed employment contract rather than fixed-term contracts. The average company affiliation is 14 years. Two of the new managing directors have been with the LHI for 16 and 20 years respectively. We also have a number of returnees who have come back to us after spending some time in other companies.

Equal opportunities - part of our mentality for a very long time

Many generations from different social and cultural backgrounds work together here. These can be people who have just left university and people who have been part of the workforce for a long time. The age structure of our employees ranges from 22 to 64 years.

56% of LHI’s employees are women and of these 30% are in management positions. LHI also has a female managing director. In our company parental leave is not just for women. We support our employees, both male and female, so that they can reconcile family and professional life easily.

 

Family and professional life - responsibility in every situation

From the day the first schools, kindergartens and nurseries were closed due to the coronavirus pandemic, we offered staff with responsibility for the care of children the option of working from home. If individual hours could not be worked due to childcare commitments, we did not expect our employees to bear the expense of this, but instead allowed them to book these hours to a "Corona" order set up specifically for this purpose.

 

Facilities for body and mind

We support our employees by providing facilities for maintaining good health. The LHI Health Week offers lectures, health checks and sports courses.

To help our staff relax physically and mentally, we organise mobile massages and yoga classes.

The in-house restaurant serves salads, soups, vegetarian and light dishes and, where possible, dishes are prepared using local products.

We provide a fruit counter with seasonal produce as well as coffee, tea and water at the coffee points, all free-of-charge.

Working with each other and for each other

We support regional institutions such as the local fire brigade, kindergartens, schools and sports clubs. Children and young adults are our future. That is why commitment to children's and youth projects as well as promoting students is particularly important to us.

To us social commitment means providing assistance actively and immediately. In 2019, for example, as part of the "Housing for Large Refugee Families" project, we provided housing in our extension area next to the company headquarters and offered initial training for a former refugee.

For us, social commitment also means the promotion of art and culture. This means direct active support through donations and membership fees, but also organising guided art tours or direct cooperation with artists.

Respectful and on an equal footing with our partners

Our cooperation with all business partners is based on trust, respect and dealing with each other on an equal footing. In the long term, we can only work together successfully if the interests of all parties involved are safeguarded. In all business areas, we strive to achieve a long-term business relationship with our partners

Responsibility for the whole

We do not support any investments in assets which are questionable or controversial, either economically or ethically. For example, we refuse to provide companies that produce landmines or chemical weapons with financing and creative know-how.
