International gambling company Novomatic invited Tuesday all its employees at its headquarters in the town of Gumpoldskirchen, Austria, to a Health Day. The action was part of the third Novomatic Company Day, which was described by the brand as a "great success."
“The pandemic has once again shown that health is the highest good, and workplace health promotion brings numerous benefits for employees and employers alike. The anticipation for the already third NOVO-Company Day was great, as due to COVID hardly any events could be held lately," the company said in an official press release.
Ryszard Presch and Johannes Gratzl, the Executive Board of NOVOMATIC AG, welcomed the employees on the premises of the group headquarters, located in the Austrian state of Lower Austria.
“The last two years were very challenging for all of us. We have learned once again that above all our health is the most important thing. With the NOVO Company Day, we would like to sincerely thank all our employees for their extraordinary commitment and, at the same time, further promote awareness of health and safety in the workplace. If the employees are doing well, the company is doing well," he stated.
The correlation between employee health and corporate success was also emphasized by the mayor of the town of Gumpoldskirchen, Ferdinand Köck, who praised the event: “Healthy and satisfied employees are the added value of a company. Everyone benefits from the resulting corporate success, including, of course, the community of Gumpoldskirchen."
After the ceremonial opening, a wide range of offers were open to the employees, from lectures on stress reduction or burnout prevention, to numerous outdoor and indoor stations such as spine screening, running shoe analysis, a first aid refresher, fire extinguishing training to sports stations such as basketball or an e-bike test station and an extensive health street. A raffle with several prizes rounded off the program.
“The enthusiastic feedback from the employees confirmed the success of the NOVO-Company Day and reinforces the intention to continue this event tradition in the future”, the company concluded.
