BASF Global Family

BASF Global Family is our international vacation exchange program for the children of BASF employees worldwide. Kids spend two weeks of their vacation (summer or winter) with a BASF family in another country. Families who send their child on an exchange commit themselves in turn to take care of the child of the exchange partners.

Designed to Fit - Flexible Work Arrangements

Balancing the requirements of a highly competitive work environment with the responsibilities that each of us face in our personal lives is an ongoing challenge. At BASF, we have "Designed to Fit - Making Flexibility Work!" - our award-winning flexible work arrangement - on our side to help us meet this challenge.

Educational Assistance/ Tuition Reimbursement

Eligible employees can receive tuition reimbursement for courses and seminars they successfully complete at recognized schools (excluding Executive MBA Programs) that have been determined by their supervisor and the appropriate Human Resources representative to be either job-related, or related to a job within BASF to which the employee can reasonably aspire in the future.

Employee Discounts

BASF employees are eligible to take advantage of discounts from several major suppliers. The Marketplace is a separate online shopping portal for BASF employees that feature hundreds of deals that are regularly updated. We also have valuable discounts that many of our customers extend to BASF employees through which significant savings can be had on major purchases of home appliances and automobiles.

Employee Referral Program

Active BASF employees can earn up to $2,020 for referring new talented people to the BASF team.

Employee Volunteerism

We encourage employees to make a personal commitment to improving the quality of life in their communities through volunteer activities and community organizations.

Recognition & Rewards

Great effort and results deserve great recognition and rewards. That's why at BASF we make it a part of our culture to seek out and reward employees who go 'above and beyond' the call of duty. Through formal and informal recognition programs, we create chemistry for change and a culture of excellence and high performance.

Retirement Savings Plan (RSP)

We'll help you build financial security through the BASF Retirement Savings Plan (RSP). The RSP provides a significant level of Company contributions of up to 10% of your eligible compensation, with 5% in automatic Employer Retirement Contributions and up to 5% more in Company-Matching contributions on the money that you elect to save. For example, if you contribute 5% of your pay, BASF will put in 10% toward your retirement. If you put in nothing, BASF will still put in 5% of your eligible compensation into the plan.

BrightScope Inc., an independent advisor to the Retirement Planning and Wealth Management Industry, has consistently rated BASF’s Retirement Savings Plan in the top tier of all 401(k) plans. Click on the image below to learn more.
