Workplace and preventative health

Given the demographic shifts of the times, preventative health care is especially impor­tant. That’s why the company supports prevention measures that are not only a good idea in themselves, but also heighten employee awareness of health issues.

Good preventive care

Since 2007, staff have been able to avail themselves of preventive medical care, including colon cancer screenings, cardiovascular checks and skin cancer screenings. As winter approaches, they can also get a free flu shot at work. Additionally, employees have the opportunity to donate blood several times at company headquarters, for which they also receive a blood test.

In tip-top shape all around

Various measures are offered at regular intervals under the “health changes” banner, including Pilates and progressive muscle relaxation according to Jacobsen, which are designed to help employees stay fit and healthy in the long term. This programme will be expanded with even more attractive offers.

Eating healthily

To inspire employees to eat a healthy and varied diet, the company restaurant regularly has reduced-calorie and nutritionally sound dishes on its menu. Recipes for these dishes are posted on the intranet, so staff can replicate them at home with their families. Moreover, the company restaurant also offers a large and appealing salad bar.
