Health Management at ISGUS


The Renowned German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer once quoted: „Health is not everything – but without health, everything is nothing". This was and is the inspiration for the "2018 ISGUS Health Day”.  

The health day held at the ISGUS headquarters in Villingen-Schwenningen offered encouragement and motivation by providing various workshops, checks and hands-on activities – all under the slogan „ISGUS year of exercise”. Additionally, a large portion of motivation, on how to "defeat one’s weaker self" by Denise Rutschmann, the Olympic champion in hockey.

Other issues were discussed e.g. healthy food and drink – alternatives to soft drinks and how to prepare light power food for yourself. Colleagues had their back/spine checked, identifying any existing problems in the back.

In May 2018 there will be an exciting opportunity to join a Nordic Walking course in which professionals will demonstrate the correct running technique for walking and jogging. This course will see us prepared for the upcoming Villingen city run in July. This run in our historic city centre is for charity and we are running under the slogan "run to help".

Throughout the ISGUS Group our employees are constantly active – not only to meet our customer’s expectations but their own, in terms of their health and fitness. Keeping the performance level high, is a top priority at ISGUS.

In Frankfurt, there is a team of people who meet on a weekly basis for training (running), to exercise and motivate each other. Their aim is to master the J.P. Morgan Corporate Challenge on 07 June 2018 in Frankfurt. The challenge is a worldwide series of 5.6 km run events. Employees from companies in various industries can participate. This year, up to 70.000 participants are expected at this sporting event.

Our subsidiaries in Osnabrück and Berlin are also supporting a participant in the Berlin Marathon, which will cover the distance of 42.195 km on 16 September 2018.
