Geesthacht and Teltow, our employees can strengthen their cardiovascular system and muscles together with their colleagues, while also having time for a chat. The focus is on enjoying the exercise session.

Courses encouraging active relaxation teach practical ways of coping with stress that can be easily integrated into everyday life.

The various courses take place on a regular basis, and new employees can also join in at the beginning of each course.

Teams made up of employees regularly take part in sporting events. These are less about the competition itself, but rather about enjoying sports together as a group. As an example, together we take part in the “cycle to work” scheme or compete with others in city runs.

We also have regular preventative health campaigns for our employees. These include donating blood and programmes to help with giving up smoking.

Operational Integration Management is the pillar of occupational health management that aims to integrate employees who have fallen ill.

Together with these employees, we seek to find ways of overcoming illness and preventing a recurrence of an inability to work.
