      Mobile Working at Continental

      At Continental, we attach great importance to flexible working. In practice, a hybrid working model has become established, i.e. a mix of mobile working - for example in the home office - and on-site presence. This is because personal encounters promote communication, strengthen team spirit and make us more innovative and creative. This balanced work philosophy creates a flexible and motivating environment for professional growth. In addition, our colleagues in many countries have two times a year 20 working days at their disposal, on which they can combine working abroad with travel and leisure time in two European countries each.

      Why Mobile Working Is Important to Us

      Geographic flexibility offers a wide range of advantages for employees and companies alike. After all, mobile working creates time that can be used for meaningful activities, whether in a personal or a professional context. Our colleagues gain more independence and can organize the way they do their work to suit them. In addition, hybrid collaboration eliminates commutes and trips, thus protecting the environment. All of this increases the satisfaction, motivation, and creativity of our colleagues, which can ultimately lead to more groundbreaking innovations.
