A Health-Conscious Environment

A health-conscious environment

Health comes first

Caring for people’s health is a central part of what we are all about. That means not just for the patients who use our medicines, but for our staff as well. At our German headquarters in Baden-Baden, our corporate health program Heel Fit covers everything from sports activities to healthy food.

Fitness and relaxation

After a long day at their desk or lab bench, our staff can participate in a wide range of courses designed to promote fitness and relaxation. Led by qualified trainers and physiotherapists, these activities include running, (power) walking, ball games, aqua aerobics and yoga – to name just a few.

Heel Run / Heel Lauf

Every year we get together and host the popular Heel Run or Heel Lauf in Baden-Baden. Initiated more than ten years ago, news of the fun has spread and the number of participants has been increasing annually. Both beginners and seasoned runners from Heel and the surrounding region are eligible to take part. We support our employees with individual fitness coaching beforehand, and a substantial number of staff has joined in the team spirit and discovered the joy of running.

Healthy food at work

When it comes to our company canteen, our goal is to establish a health-conscious environment for our staff. Dishes are freshly prepared and include regional and seasonal products, in line with the company’s policy of ensuring sustainability when sourcing and preparing food. The high-quality menus promote awareness for healthy nutrition and offer options for staff with special dietary requirements.
