1st virtual health day at EMG Automation
Due to the ongoing corona pandemic, the annual health day at EMG Automation could unfortunately not take place this year in the customary form. Therefore, a virtual health day was held for the first time from 14 April to 15 April 2021 in cooperation with the AOK Nordwest.
As early as mid-March, employees on site and from the home office were able to register via a registration link for the modules "Back Coaching" and "Nutrition Check" as well as for a lecture on "Arriving well in the evening".
In the "Back Coaching" module, the participants were given individual digital advice by a trained and qualified trainer on back health in everyday working life. Based on their own prerequisites and goals, a training plan could then be put together according to the latest findings in ergo-dynamics.
With the help of the "nutrition check", the employees could analyse their current nutritional behaviour together with a trained coach and optimise it according to their personal needs and goals.
While the modules were specifically aimed at individual counselling of the employees, the lecture "Arriving well in the evening" offered the opportunity to inform several participants about measures that help to clear the mind and recharge in the evening. This lecture was particularly interesting for EMG employees who have been working from home since the Corona pandemic, as home offices often lack a counterbalance to everyday working life.
At the beginning of the week before the virtual health day, baskets with apples, muesli bars and flyers with various exercise recommendations (e.g. for back health) were distributed in the company.
A total of about 50 EMG employees took advantage of this year's virtual health day. The positive feedback encourages EMG to hold further health days in the future and thus to draw the attention of its employees to their own well-being.
