HUG as an employer

At HUG, there is still time for important things

Familie & Freizeit

Whatever task you perform at HUG, it should allow you to maintain a stable work-life and work-family balance.

Part-time work and job sharing
Individual part-time work and job sharing give you more freedom for leisure, family, private plans and many more projects.
Various patterns of shift work
Different shift patterns and predefined cycles give our employees more flexible time off during the week. The night premium amounts to an additional 25%. We don't work weekends (production stops on Saturdays by noon at the latest).
Mobile working
Avoiding rush-hour commutes, enjoying flexible working hours, reducing our impact on the environment – mobile working allows this and much more when on-site presence is not essential.
Annualisation of working time
We focus on completing tasks rather than specific working times. The annualisation of working time contributes to a more flexible organisation of work and to compensate for seasonal fluctuations. Should this not be enough, employees can also take unpaid leave.

Depending on orders, we manufacture our products on a 2 or 3 shift pattern. The variable working hours allow you to perform a variety of tasks and contribute to a multifaceted daily workload.
Shift premium
The shift and night premiums are included in the predetermined salary and are therefore part of your remuneration. To help you recover, you get an additional 25% bonus for night shifts, and you can enjoy a 20-minute paid break.

A flat organisation
We make sure to keep our interactions straightforward and personal. We are in direct contact with each other on a daily basis and stay close to our business. A flat organisation requires all employees to show initiative and responsibility.

What I am really enthusiastic about, at HUG, is the strong cohesion within the team. We achieve our common goals together, we work hand in hand and we still take time to laugh, even during intensive work periods. For me, HUG has stood for humanity, entrepreneurship and caring for more than 20 years.
