Freudenberg, 10 December 2013
We have opened a fitness centre for our employees in our Freudenberg headquarters. The former training workshop was completely remodelled for the project over the course of the year. In addition to modern fitness equipment, the centre, named STARK (the German word for strong), also has an area for prevention classes such as Pilates, stomach/back fitness, BodyPump and drums. Many of our 300 employees came to the opening to learn about the new offer. A team from the RPP out-patient therapy centre in Oberberg is now available to them for help and advice. The physiotherapists teach the courses and give individual direction for targeted therapeutic measures. The STARK fitness centre is not just open to employees on weekdays but also at the weekend. ‘The fitness centre is another component of our health management programme launched last summer,’ explains Managing Director Mark Meulbroek. ‘Our employees are our most important asset, so we are happy to invest in their health.’
In addition to the new fitness centre, our health management programme, called ‘STARK by HF MIXING GROUP’ also offers Nordic walking classes and nutritional counselling. In the autumn we offered our employees the opportunity to use e-bikes at an inexpensive rate in cooperation with the service provider ‘bicycles and more’. 120 employees took advantage of the offer.
