Working in the home office

Working in the home office

In pajamas to work – no one would come to the office dressed like that! In the home office it is possible – as long as the employee does not present himself in this outfit in the video meeting. If you are well organized and disciplined, it doesn’t matter what you wear in front of the computer, your thoughts will flow and your creativity will bubble – often better at home than in the office. Others need their office order, the structure, the official touch. Anyone who misses going into the office should try to bring the office character home with them. That means: choosing office clothes carefully and still going on the way that doesn’t even exist in the home office.

New e-bike station in herzogenaurach ensures full batteries

Owners of an e-bike can now use the snack bar between the bus station and the parking deck "an der schutt" refuel their electric bicycles free of charge around the clock.
