The new prevention law
Last but not least, the Federal Government recognized this danger and at the 18. June 2015, after a long period of consultation, passed the new Prevention Law, in which the social insurance funds are clearly more responsible for promoting the health of people in their work environment. Thus the Federal Ministry of Health writes: “Companies are particularly suitable for implementing prevention and health promotion offers. Since the interventions take place in an outreach form, people can also be addressed who are more difficult to reach in the usual ways. If the employees experience their work as meaningful and less than a burden and if they also experience the employer as caring, this has been proven to have an equally positive effect on their health and the success of the company. ”
There is more to change
But how sustainable are the measures that are being implemented, how useful are usually unique offers like the popular health day? And are not always the same already active candidates, who use in-house fitness offers like for example back courses?
In order to achieve a rethinking of health-conscious behavior and also to inspire employees who have so far no or few points of contact with movement and holistic fitness, one thing above all needs to be one thing: joy in the matter, easy implementation with direct benefit for everyday life as well as an individually shaped promotion.
Passive programs for the office
This is where “break kicker” comes into play. As a dynamic Hamburg start-up with tailor-made programs and the unique combination of office yoga, voice and memory training, we have committed ourselves to the term “occupational health entertainment”. Our entertaining and health-promoting programs prove that health-conscious behavior not only keeps you fit, but is also fun.
Body, mind and voice are refreshed with morning yoga exercises, voice and memory training, and the stomach is rewarded with delicious smoothies and organic treats. During active lectures and workshops, the participants get well-founded knowledge vividly packed with tips and methods that are anchored in a playful way.
There are even many movementkeptics to the health fan, some inhibitors to the Denksportanhänger. With exciting city rallys and humorous quizzes, we make for laughing faces, moving lunch breaks bring fresh air into the office day.
Performance plus almost by the way
Almost like by the way the participants are rewarded with a waking concentrated head, a firm well-articulated voice, deepened breathing and relaxed mobilized muscles.
Exercise videos and brochures, tailored to the needs of the workforce and the demands of today's workplace, provide long-term benefits. An approach that pays off: in the form of motivated, self-reliant employees and lower sick leave.
But not only the need for external health services is increasing, but also the need for internal employees who can carry out health-promoting measures in self-government. In accordance with this trend, we offer the Pausenkicker Academy.
1-3 daily training modules for office yoga, voice and memory training. Regular resource reinforcement and the anchoring of memory and relaxation techniques, breathing and speech exercises are ensured.
Regardless of whether as regular training, a one-off event program or training lasting several days, modern health programs have to be fun and “health entertainment” appears as a new pillar of occupational health management Company To obtain: As an effective component for fit employees and long-term business success.
Especially in small and medium-sized companies, however, the first question is: What does it cost and who is to pay for it? Of course, self-management, both with monetary, as well as human and spatial resources is necessary, but there are many ways of support.
Support by health insurance and state
Statutory health insurance companies are increasingly supporting targeted BGM in companies. The BKK VBU is mentioned here as a partner of Pausenkicker, who has devoted himself particularly to this topic in the past few years and is also looking to the left and right in the implementation of measures to implement truly effective and successful concepts. Furthermore, according to § 3 ECStG, companies can invest up to 500 € / year for each individual employee for tax-free (certified) health services.
Another option is the reimbursement of prevention courses (§ 20 SGB V), which is possible through any statutory health insurance. "A conversation with an expert helps to find the right opportunities here," says Arne Dahlke, BGM consultant at the BKK VBU in Hamburg. “The decisive points for a BGM concept are the tailor-made measures based on the individual environment of the company, as well as the motivation of all employees, especially those who need special support. Health has to be fun and not just an absence of illness. ”
Working time is lifetime! Therefore, it is simply important to be able to experience this time, but also to enjoy it. Of course, stress, pressure, and hustle-bustle is part of a working day, but it is important how we deal with it and tackle the challenges.
Occupational health entertainment can become an important factor here. True to the motto: “Happy employee = happy company”.
