Lear Wackersdorf recently organized a special “Gesundheitstag” (Health Day) for its employees. Health information and resources were made available to all during this fun learning experience.

BMW Gesundheitsdienst (Health Service) provided blood pressure and blood sugar tests, with its medical officer on-site for explanations. AOK, a German public health insurance company, provided information on activities promoting health. They also brought along their “Bobbycar,” which participants rode with special goggles to illustrate what it would be like to operate a vehicle while impaired.

Tuja, a professional staffing company, brought along health and safety representatives who encouraged the use of personal protective equipment. A physician showed team members the elements of resuscitation training that they might use in case of emergencies.

“It was great to have a day focusing on health issues at Wackersdorf as another example of providing support to our site,” said HR specialist Bianca Gollwitzer. “We in Human Resources would like to thank our guests and of course all of our team members who made this day special.”
