Award for driver health bags
"As a logistics company, Meyer & Meyer also employs drivers. These drivers are exposed to a large number of special health challenges, such as stress caused by increasing traffic density or back problems caused by sitting for a long time. This is why we have to consider our drivers with special offers in our health management. However, this target group is difficult to reach for Corporate Health Management measures due to their driving activities," says CHRO Maren Fathmann, explaining the problem of finding low-level access to drivers. Health coach Inga Frye finally had the idea of a mobile "health bag for drivers". The bags were distributed on a regular monthly basis and contained various health-promoting components for the areas of physical, social and mental health. In addition to monthly changing topics with suggestions for promoting health, such as relaxation techniques or healthy eating, the bag contained letters from various company departments, which provided the drivers with news from the company. "The bag gave the drivers appreciation and we were able to sensitize them to health issues and directly influence their health by pointing out health-promoting possibilities," says Inga Frye. "The award from the BGHW shows us that we have found a good approach with the health bags concept," the health coach continued. "We will keep on working on improving the health of our drivers and are planning a new offer for this year", Maren Fathmann already looks at the upcoming driver projects.
