Living by the river

“Putting down roots” desired

Living well and at an affordable price, enjoying nature, strolling through town, having an evening out, visiting cultural highlights ― the region around the Weser River is not only an industrial area but also a diversified living environment for country lovers and townspeople alike. One of the last original natural landscapes in central Europe, Lower Saxony’s Wadden Sea National Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site right on the doorstep.

A family-friendly region

The regional companies show great interest to ensure attractive working conditions for their employees. Therefore numerous employers from industry and the public sector promote various operational measures for good health as well as age-appropriate working conditions. An Occupational Health Management helps to ensure that employees remain healthy, highly productive and motivated over the long-term.

Reconciling work and family life in the region is rated very highly, reflected not least in the fact that a number of communities have received “Work and Family” certification. Along with a broad spectrum of care services for children and young people of all ages there are various programmes which the region’s development agencies have set up specifically to support women re-entering their occupations or starting up in business. Last but not least, employers in the region are also turning increasingly to flexible work solutions where these overlap with working and production processes.
