Bertelsmann India Celebrates Health
At the beginning of April, the employees of Fremantle Media India, Yoboho New Media India, Penguin Random House India, DK India, Bertelsmann India Investments and the Bertelsmann India Corporate Center held their annual “Health Week” – with online activities instead of on site due to the current situation.
Regardless of which country we may currently be living in, the issue of health has become more important than ever. The employees of Bertelsmann India, despite or especially because of their working from home, did not want to do without their annual “Health Week”. Around World Health Day on April 7, the employees of Fremantle Media India, Yoboho New Media India, Penguin Random House India, DK India, Bertelsmann India Investments and the Bertelsmann India Corporate Center organized various online activities for “Health Week” with a focus on fitness, nutrition and wellness.
The employees of Penguin Random House India and DK India sent daily book recommendations to their colleagues on topics such as mental wellness, fitness, nutrition, stress management and mindfulness. The “Healthy Toast Challenge”, initiated by Bertelsmann India Investments, asked employees to prepare a healthy drink and share a photo featuring themselves along with the drink. In the one-hour “Art of Living” session, a yoga and meditation instructor spoke about the topic, and in an Online Yoga Workshop organized by DK India and given by Grandmaster Akshar, employees were able to roll out their yoga mats at home and follow along – DK employees around the world participated in the popular offer. The nonfiction publisher DK also gave away digital copies of the book “A Little Book of Self Care: Breathwork” to all employees in India. Those who made a healthy and nutritious meal at home were able to share their recipes and photos of the meals with others. Under the slogan “Healthy@Home”, Fremantle India shared ideas and resources on introducing healthy habits to all its employees over the course of the week.
