Our Benefits

Connecting Passion and Profession

Employee Benefits

*Our benefits are partially dependent on location, job role, and/or contractual arrangement. Our recruiting team will be happy to provide you with more detailed information about this in a personal conversation.

Flexible working hours - Whether you're an early bird or a night owl, within the framework of our flextime model, you can determine the start and end of your daily working hours yourself. Furthermore, we offer a variety of working time models to best accommodate your individual needs.

38.5 hours - The standard working time is 38.5 hours for a 5-day week.

Home Office - We aim to provide you with maximum flexibility. In consultation with your supervisor, you have the option to work from home.

Time-saving model - Should you need to work longer hours on occasion, you can build up time credits and use them on an hourly or daily basis. Enjoy up to 3 bridge days per year, during which you automatically have time off and can enjoy extended weekends.

Sabbatical - We love our work, but we understand that sometimes a short break is needed to recharge. In consultation with your supervisor, you can take a sabbatical. It allows you to accumulate time initially and then use it for travel or other endeavors. Our HR department will gladly provide you with more information on the various possibilities.

Loyalty leave - We are particularly proud that our employees tend to stay with us longer than the industry average. As a small recognition, after 10 years at AVL, you will receive two additional vacation days per year. After 25 years of service (limited credit for school time/training/previous service possible), you will receive a 6th week of vacation.

December 24 and 31 off - In addition to your vacation entitlement, you have December 24th and 31st off with full pay.

In-house healthcare – Your health is important to us. That's why we have an in-house team of occupational physicians and industrial psychologists who take care of your physical and mental well-being.

Health management – Health lectures and seminars (e.g., Eating Better while Working from Home or Mental Well-being), as well as health check-ups (e.g., Skin Cancer Prevention, Preventive Examinations), along with regular vaccination campaigns, are just some of the many measures offered by our AVL Health Management Team.

Workplace – We provide comprehensive training and materials to help optimize your health at the workplace, such as guidance on taking screen breaks or setting up your workspace ergonomically.

The company sports club regularly organizes sports events/trips and offers ongoing courses like running groups, cricket, soccer, or yoga.

Educational leave and part-time training – By enabling educational leave and part-time training, we aim to promote personal and professional development.

Celebrating success together – Last but not least, it's important for us to celebrate successes together. Join your colleagues at various company events such as the summer festival, Oktoberfest, or our popular AVL Christmas parties.

Family-friendly working hours – Through targeted measures, we support you in maintaining a balance between work and family (e.g. parental leave or flexible work schedule models, such as no fixed core hours).

Childcare – For your children, the option of day care is available through our AVL kindergarten (limited spots). In collaboration with the works council, subsidized courses for all children up to 15 years are additionally offered during the summer.

Financial subsidies – There are special moments in life, like weddings or births, that are unforgettable. As a company, we are pleased to help you celebrate through congratulatory bonuses.

Open Company Culture

At AVL, we highly value creativity, courage, curiosity, and pushing boundaries. We encourage our employees to think outside the box and be the driving force behind the new technologies that shape the future of mobility. By investing 11% of our annual revenue in R&D activities, we provide our employees with the opportunity to work on their own research projects independent of client orders.

Our open and inclusive culture encourages everyone to contribute their ideas and perspectives. For instance, in our "Rapid Innovation Teams," members from different disciplines come together for a limited period to drive high-focus innovation tasks. Moreover, through the AVL Improvement Process, employees can submit improvement suggestions at any time, which are then evaluated and appropriately rewarded upon successful implementation.
