Why why why?

Family orientation is an important concern of the UniBw M. In March 2021, in order to promote the compatibility of family and work/service/study, she expanded her family offer to include digital childcare through KidsCircle. The non-performance-related aspect as well as the pedagogical approach played an important role in the choice for KidsCircle.

 

For which problems is digital childcare a solution?

The offer enables students to pursue their intensive studies, employees, their teaching and research tasks or their work, while their children participate in an exciting digital program. Digital childcare makes it increasingly easy to attend meetings. Especially in times of the pandemic, it was important to be able to take care of childcare and study or work in the home office.


In which cases do your employees use this innovative form of childcare?

Employees use the offer when care facilities are closed and to carry out everyday professional work.

 

Which channels did you use to communicate the offer to employees?

The offer was communicated to employees via our intranet and via email. In addition, superiors were made aware of the offer as multipliers.

 

How do you rate the time required for the introduction?

Mainly low. The internal expenditure of time was compensated by the quick implementation at KidsCircle.

“Thank you for organizing this offer! The email ... came just in time when my son's day care center was closed for two weeks due to a corona case. We have already used the offer twice and I can only recommend it. …”

“Thank you for this great offer! I used it yesterday, my children loved it and I was able to work in peace. It also worked out well technically.”
