The company's environmental protection and occupational safety department initiated the internal "Healthy Work" project together with the works council back in 2011. The aim is to inform employees about the three pillars of health - exercise, nutrition and stress reduction - and to motivate them to work in healthier ways. In recent years, action days on these topics have been held regularly.

This time in July, an action day was planned on the topic of "back health". Under the motto "Think about your back", employees could inform themselves during working hours and participate in various offers.

For the planning and implementation of the event, the company had brought experts from the Interessengemeinschaft der Rückenschullehrer/-innen e. V. (IGR) on board.

During the back check, people could learn a lot about their own backs, and during the reactive training with dumbbells, they could get to know new training methods.excella

Daniela Kovats, responsible for health protection and occupational safety at Excella, is pleased about the very positive response: "With the health day, we wanted above all to give incentives to make the topic of back health a part of one's own everyday life in the long run. The feedback from colleagues shows positive responses to this topic."

The IGR has been committed to "workplace health" for a long time and wants to help promote the corporate goal of workplace health in the long term. In organising health days and similar events, it is an independent partner that provides know-how in many areas.
