What measures have Jungheinrich taken as a result of the coronavirus?
It goes without saying that Jungheinrich provides its employees with the necessary safety equipment. All close personal contact between employees and their customers or colleagues is systematically recorded in the event that information and follow-up should be required.
We take the current situation very seriously. An internal crisis team was convened with the task of drawing up and initiating all steps including preventive measures. In addition, information is provided regularly about necessary hygiene measures. In the affected areas, the management teams are in close contact with local authorities and implement all necessary measures.
Is it possible to work from home?
Jungheinrich has been offering its employees the option to work from home since 16 March 2020, where the role allows. Any company equipment provided may of course be taken home and used. Our employees are also required to keep their presence in the office to a minimum while the number of infections remains high.
Is there help available if I have a child to look after at home?
Jungheinrich decided back in March 2020 to give employees who live with children requiring care and who are affected by the closure of a school or childcare in their federal state 10 extra days of voluntary family leave. Of course, our employees also have the option of applying for statutory child sickness days and compensation provided by the local authority under the Infection Protection Act and, if possible, taking advantage of the flexitime system.

How does the selection process work?
To protect our employees and applicants, we also use strict hygiene and safety precautions during the selection process. In fact, much of the selection process takes place virtually.

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to offer any student internships.
