Discount season ticket
We make sure that you can start your working day relaxed by avoiding the stress of rush-hour traffic. Our discount season ticket for employees gets them to the office at a good price and using environmentally friendly mass transit. It's our way of contributing to sustainability and green mobility.
Telekom takes its pension commitments very seriously. Employees not only enjoy company pensions, which we pay into a personal account regardless of age and income, but they can also take some of their gross pay and add it to a retirement fund.
Capital accumulation benefits
Do you use a building society account or Germany's supplementary Riester pension as part of your retirement preparations? Telekom will support you and pay capital accumulation benefits straight into your government-backed investment fund.
Are you sick and there's no sign of recovery just yet? There's no need to worry: As a Telekom employee, you are entitled to up to six weeks' full pay in the event of illness. If you have a more serious condition, we won't let you down, and you can count on receiving an appropriate level of sick pay.
Because money can't buy everything, we also offer a host of benefits that will make your life better.
Special vacation entitlement
Are you expecting the birth of a child, making wedding plans, or getting ready to move house? You are entitled to up to two days' vacation for special occasions.
We place great value on our employees' health and wellbeing, so we offer free checkups and regular screenings.
If you encounter serious difficulties following a major illness or a serious event outside of your control, Telekom's support system is there for you.
Relax with your entire family, and all at a great price: Telekom's in-house vacation program offers trips to the Group's own resorts in Germany and the Netherlands. If you want to go further afield, we have a catalog covering 400 offers around the world.
Study grants for children
Your children's education is of crucial importance. To put every child on the path towards completing their school education, Telekom is part of a support network with Post and Postbank that can, under certain circumstances, provide aid if needed.
Inexpensive rental vehicles
Your car is at the repair shop? Or you want to take your whole family on vacation and need a car for the occasion? Our fleet service can make you a very competitively priced deal if you want to lease a vehicle for private usage.
Inexpensive hotel stays
Great deals for overnight stays are available from Telekom's own conference hotels around Germany. Other hotels can offer you special terms, even if you're not traveling for business.
You're about to start your first job or relocate for work, so you're looking for the right place to live near your office. Need help? Telekom can assist you in your search for rental accommodation.
If you're taking up a new job or are appointed to a new position by your employer, you might find yourself facing a hefty relocation bill. In certain situations, Telekom will pick up the tab.
Further education and training
Telekom views life-long learning as something essential. The company therefore offers a wide array of further education and training options, ranging from seminars to on-the-job degrees.
Telekom is on a mission to ensure employees can balance their home lives and professional commitments. The company's childcare facilities are there to minimize stress and maximize flexibility for you at your workplace. These facilities are available at our offices in Berlin, Bonn, Darmstadt, Dresden, Frankfurt am Main, Munich, and Leinfelden-Echterdingen.
Parent and child offices
A large number of our sites feature parent and child offices that are there for employees if their usual childcare service is unexpectedly unavailable. Rooms for parents and children are present in Bonn, Darmstadt, Essen, Frankfurt am Main, Göppingen, Hanover, Mannheim, Munich, Münster, Nuremberg, Schwäbisch-Hall, Stuttgart, Ulm and Weinheim.
What happens if your organizer is so full that you don't have the time to lunch at a restaurant, but you'd still like a proper meal? All you have to do is go to the canteen present at many Telekom offices. Never more than a few minutes away, they offer a wide selection of warm and cold dishes for you to choose from. Use our Lunchplace app to check what's on the menu where you are and make your choice before you get hungry.
When it's time to go home at last. When you finish work, you want to be able to enjoy your free time as soon as possible. So it's great to be able to take care of all kinds of little things before you even leave the office: Go to an ATM, package drop-off/collection point, or dry cleaners.
Physical activity is a great way to unwind after work, and it enhances performance and wellbeing. If you want to do something for your fitness, you can either join our in-house gym at our Bonn site or make the most of special offers available to Telekom staff at other gyms. If sweating on a treadmill isn't your thing, why not join one of our many staff sports groups?
