Many employees spend a large amount of their time either at a computer or working in sitting positions. Continued sitting and physical strain can result in health problems. For example Backache and tense neck & shoulder muscles. That is why productware offers preventive activities to their staff.
In small groups participants learn theoretical background of the problem areas and afterwards they use their knowledge in practical exercises.
For example the employees learn how the spine and the locomotor system works and how to ease the pain through selfhelp. Futhermore there is the possibility to make use of a massage service. The costs for the workshops and massage services will be paid by productware.
Positive employee feedback
Ca. 2/3 of poductware staff take part in this health program. The feedback is very positive. One of the participants, Ms. Britta Flender, thinks the workshops are very helpful because after being instructed you are able to do these exercises by yourself.
Another participant Mr. Marc Bolle likes the massage service because it has a relaxing effect and reduces tension.
