Equal treatment and diversity denote a culture of just, fair and mutually respectful interaction in a spirit of cooperation among all people on the job and beyond.

For its active commitment to these principles, HMC received the "Helga Stödter Award" for 'Mixed Leadership' from the Hamburg Chamber of Commerce in 2015. HMC was lauded for its high share of female employees in management positions, among other criteria.

What is more, we are constantly developing new working arrangements to help employees reconcile their family duties with their job responsibilities, for example by offering home-office work, an adaptable flextime system, and part-time schemes so parents can fulfil their professional duties more easily. These efforts have earned us the  Hamburg Family Seal  award several times.
