Our employees’ health and wellbeing is of central importance to us. We live in an era of digitalisation, Work 4.0 and greater personal responsibility, making it all the more important that we safeguard our employees’ wellbeing and lead by example in the field of health awareness. In line with this ethos, we have created a wide range of health-focused activities:

  • In-house initiatives such as health courses and workshops, check-ups, assessments
  • Annual campaigns that provide staff with inspiration, encouragement, tips and support
  • Escape room-style courses and team-building to promote wellbeing in our shared workplaces
  • Sport and fitness offerings, health training and coaching from our business partners (VDES, Bahn BKK)
