A healthy lifestyle and a good work-life balance are important aspects of professional life nowadays. Ursa-Chemie has recognised this and introduced a new offer in March this year: The job bike. Since then, employees have been able to lease a bicycle through the company and benefit from the many advantages of this initiative.
The job bike programme at Ursa-Chemie is part of our comprehensive health management, which aims to promote the well-being and fitness of our employees. By giving them the opportunity to lease a bike through the company, we want to encourage them to maintain an active lifestyle and integrate exercise into their daily lives.
The advantages of the job bike are manifold. On the one hand, it contributes to improved health. Regular cycling can strengthen the cardiovascular system, boost metabolism and increase endurance. It’s a great way to improve physical fitness and lose weight. In addition, cycling can reduce stress and promote mental health by serving as an effective form of relaxation.
Another positive aspect of the job bike offer is the promotion of a better work-life balance. By cycling to work, employees can start the day with an invigorating activity and clear their minds. This morning exercise can help clear the mind and start the working day with renewed energy. Even on the way home, cycling offers a way to leave the stress of the day behind and actively spend the evening after work.
We are very pleased that some employees have already accepted the job bike offer and have shared their positive experiences with us. Our safety specialist and health coordinator has provided us with pictures of how he gets to work in the morning since he took up the offer. With just under 20 kilometres each way, it shows us how easy it can be to integrate regular exercise into our daily work routine.
The management of Ursa-Chemie has responded to the numerous requests from employees and signed the corresponding framework agreements with the regional partner primandis from Bad Ems. We hope that many employees will take advantage of the offer and that we will soon see many cyclists on the roads around our company.
When using the job bike, the safety of our employees is particularly important to us. We would therefore like to emphasise how important it is to observe the traffic rules and wear the necessary protective equipment. We wish all cyclists an accident-free journey at all times and lots of fun exploring the surroundings on two wheels.
