PFERD staff show their sporty side
Employees, members of the Works Council and of the Executive Board – a PFERD team of 40 runners competed in the 33rd Run around the Agger Reservoir together and demonstrated athletic ambition.
Both experienced athletes and some employees who had only recently discovered running in the context of the company health management at PFERD were among the runners. Therefore, the company is particularly proud of the fact that so many employees successfully participated in the competition.
In 2012, August Rüggeberg established the company health management as one of the first companies in the region. Since then, more and more mostly athletic activities have been offered under the motto PFERDVITAL, giving employees the chance to actively take care of their health.
These measures are PFERD’s response to social developments such as demographic changes and the increasing shortage of skilled workers. As a family-owned company, August Rüggeberg considers the workforce, the expertise and skills as well as the experience of its employees to be a significant part of its capital. That is why the company feels it is its duty to its employees to prevent illnesses at the workplace, reinforce its employees’ health and increase their well-being.
