DK Celebrates Global Health Week

Subject: Employees
Country: International
Category: Project

As part of its Employee Survey company actions, DK made a commitment to wellbeing programs for its employees at various offices. Coinciding with World Health Day, they focused on promoting a healthy lifestyle and work-life balance.

The Bertelsmann Employee Survey will start next week and will give employees around the globe the opportunity to express their opinions about important work-related topics – topics from which concise measures will be derived, ideally with sustainably positive effects, such as on health. Coinciding with World Health Day, DK recently organized a “Health Week” and made a commitment to support wellbeing programs at various offices around the world, and to promote a healthy lifestyle and work-life balance.

For a full week, employees therefore placed a spotlight on nutrition, fitness and mental wellbeing, as well as comprehensive information about the topic at offices including London, Delhi, New York, Toronto and Munich. They enjoyed healthy drinks and breakfasts, had the chance to listen to a talk by a doctor, and participated in fitness classes and an interdivisional football match. Flu shots and check-ups to measure stress levels were also on the agenda. DK accompanied “Global Health Week” with comprehensive articles and information on its intranet.
