Only employees who are healthy and feel well can fully perform their services. Especially for us, as a company in the outdoor industry, there is no doubt that we must find and promote an appropriate way to offset desk work.
Our health management system focuses on prevention and our employees’ active involvement in their own health.
Our idyllic setting makes fitness inviting
Our fitness program takes place outdoors as often as possible. The scenery helps provide motivation.
2020 was almost entirely dominated by the Corona pandemic and limited our ability to plan new on-site courses. Therefore, our focus was on maintaining existing formats under the necessary safety and hygiene regulations and partially replacing them with online options.
When not restricted by the Corona pandemic, we supplement our portfolio with select activities led by professional instructors from our network or from our own employees, such as running courses, cross-country skiing taster sessions, swimming courses, crossfit, salsa fitness and blackroll workshops.
Free, live online yoga
From the comfort of your own home (as opposed to driving to our sports room) - our online yoga class is an attractive way for many to stay fit and keep in touch with coworkers.
Since 2015 we have been working in our modernized, particularly health-promoting company headquarters. This has provided us with a health-enhancing framework:
Climbing at the workplace
Employees can work on their dexterity, strength, endurance and team spirit on our climbing wall in the entrance area of the company headquarters.
VAUDE has long been a strong supporter of bike commuting with eight E-bikes that employees can borrow, showers, sheltered bike parking, Jobrad and more. In addition to the health of our employees, this is also good for the planet – everyone benefits from less traffic, noise and pollution.
Biking to work
Despite our hilly surroundings, many employees commute to work by bike.
