For Bertelsmann, one thing is certain: the company’s long-term success is largely dependent on healthy employees and a healthy work environment. Employee health cannot be measured by presence alone. Healthy employees not only come to work, they also feel comfortable in the workplace, are fully committed to their tasks and identify with their company. Healthy framework conditions affect the organization of work, for example in workplace set up, how processes and procedures are organized and carried out, the distribution of tasks and responsibilities and leadership conduct. Healthy framework conditions also encourage employees to be attentive to their own health needs and behave health-consciously. Rather than implementing isolated or uncoordinated individual measures, systematic procedures that are goal oriented, comprehensive and integrate measures into the work process are preferred – because if you sit on a non-ergonomically oriented chair for 8 hours a day, you will not be helped in the long term by a weekly back exercise course. The overall goal is a successful company that can hold its own against market competition.
