Sport has a positive effect on health. It increases concentration, relieves stress and improves one’s condition. “We want to stimulate our employees to look after themselves, this is why we introduced Veko Fit”, explains Hans Aardenburg (CEO). Veko Fit is a vitality programme which all employees can take part in without any obligations. Veko aims to reduce absenteeism, increase productivity and make a contribution to a positive work environment. “You can get a free baseline measurement in one of the gyms associated with the scheme. Apart from doing fitness & group lessons, you can also play squash or tennis. An additional advantage is that it increases collegiality, for what is more fun than trying to beat a colleague in a game of tennis?” Since the introduction, the first Veko Fitters have registered.
