First Health Day at the Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung
The Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung (MPIE) offered on Thursday, 20th September, a multifarious programme including sports, relaxation exercises and talks about health at the work place. The Max Planck employees had the opportunity to analyse their body posture and talk about back problems and their treatment with professional external providers. Moreover, they had the chance to learn about preventive exercises shown by fitness trainers. The topics “Healthy nutrition” and “Relaxation” were also part of the programme.
The Health Day was the kick-off event for a holistic health management at the MPIE. Step by step further topics will be deepened and the range of courses will be expanded so that the physical and mental well-being is not neglected at the workplace either.
