Excellent health management: AOK Rheinland-Pfalz awards Lohmann silver certification as a "Healthy Company".

At Lohmann's Neuwied site, there was reason to celebrate last Friday, March 12, 2021: in a small ceremony held outdoors, the long-established company was awarded silver status as a "Healthy Company".

"The health of our employees has the very highest priority, especially in these times – it has guided our decisions in recent months more than ever before," said Dr. Jörg Pohlman, Lohmann's Managing Partner, at the official presentation of the certificate in front of the TEC-Center Neuwied. "For us, this topic is not only an important corporate value that should ensure performance. We want our employees to stay healthy and satisfied. We are committed to this as a company – and I personally! – very gladly." AOK Regional Manager Thomas Stahl is also pleased about this commitment as well as the cooperation with Lohmann: "We are happy to make a small contribution to employee satisfaction and support companies on this path, which of course also helps to attract and retain qualified employees!"

Certification as a "Healthy Company" can take place in the bronze, silver, or gold standard, with seven categories being tested: Integration of occupational health and social management into company policy, systematic implementation, promotion of health and health potential, employee participation, human resources management, reporting and occupational health and safety. Alexandra Bock, previous AOK contact person for health management at Lohmann, particularly emphasizes the very good level of the company in the areas of occupational safety / health and safety and promotion of employee health: "Lohmann offers a comprehensive range of services here, which is not only accepted but also supported by the management and superiors – and in this regard, significant improvements have been seen in all areas since the bronze certification in 2016!"

In cooperation with the AOK Rheinland-Pfalz, Lohmann's BGM offers, among other things, regular workshops on health in the workplace, cooking courses and health measurements. In addition, the BGM team organizes anti-stress massages as well as sports groups (yoga, badminton, climbing, and much more) with various providers. In 2020, the Neuwied Bonding Engineers also set up a blood donation campaign with the DRK Blutspendedienst West for the first time, which will be repeated regularly in the future.

"We look forward to continuing to work closely with the AOK Rheinland-Pfalz in the future and to improving our company health management even further. The clear goal, of course, is to achieve the gold standard!" says Dr. Jörg Pohlman.
