Block House cultivates satisfied employees! In Eugen Block’s philosophy, our family life must be totally reconcilable with our profession. After all, happy employees ensure we will have happy guests. And this is not just the attitude of Block House, it’s the attitude of the whole Block Group. So the employees of all 17 of the companies benefit from numerous measures to simplify the balancing act between family and profession.
