A five-hour day, flexible vacation arrangements and menstrual vacation sound like Berlin's backyard and not like Luxembourg's middle class. The translation company FaustTranslations experiments with ideas that even many start-ups don't dare. The translator Christian Faust founded the company in Luxembourg in 1996. In addition to his wife and son, nine employees and 800 external translators work for him. In an interview, the two tell why his son and he reduced working hours in the company.
Five-hour day: The end of the day is 3 p.m.
The FaustTranslations company introduced the five-hour day, menstrual leave and standard salary. A model that the bosses are more than happy with.
