The time of the pandemic has once again shown that health is the highest good and that workplace health promotion brings numerous benefits for employees and employers alike. NOVOMATIC therefore recently invited all employees of the headquarters in Gumpoldskirchen to the Health Day. The anticipation for the third NOVO-Company Day was great, as due to COVID-related hardly any events could be held recently.
With Dipl.-Ing. Ryszard Presch and Mag. Johannes Gratzl, ceo of NOVOMATIC AG, welcomed the employees in bright sunshine on the premises of the Group headquarters: “The last two years have been very challenging for all of us. We have learned once again that our health is the most important thing. With the NOVO-Company Day, we would like to thank all employees for their extraordinary commitment and at the same time further promote awareness of health and safety in the workplace. Because if the employees are doing well, the company is also doing well.”
The mayor of the market town of Gumpoldskirchen, Ferdinand Köck, also emphasized the interplay between employee health and corporate success: “Healthy and satisfied employees are the added value of a company. Everyone benefits from the resulting corporate success, including the market town of Gumpoldskirchen.”
After the ceremonial opening, employees were offered a wide range of services – from lectures on stress reduction or burnout prevention to numerous out- and indoor stations such as spinal screening, running shoe analysis, first aid course refresher, fire extinguishing exercise or sports stations such as basketball or e-bike test station to an extensive health road. A raffle with many great prizes rounded off the program.
The enthusiastic feedback from the employees repeatedly confirmed the success of the NOVO-Company Day and confirms the desire to continue this event tradition in the future.
