From flu vaccines to stress coaching – our company health management scheme offers a wide range of options. Here are several examples from Europe:
All employees have the opportunity to be checked over by a company physician once a year, free of charge. This medical check consists of a physical examination, a full blood panel, identification of personal risk factors, and explanation of the findings. If necessary, a specialist referral will also be made.
We offer our employees free flu vaccines. The quadrivalent flu vaccine offers comprehensive protection against the seasonal influenza viruses.
We offer our employees aged 45 and older the opportunity to have free colon cancer screenings once a year; if there is a family history of the disease, the screening can be done at any age. Family members can also take advantage of this offer for a small fee.
Mobile personal trainers join the teams – either on-site or virtually – and demonstrate simple exercises. We also offer stationary bikes that can be pushed up to desks. Larger locations have physiotherapy centers, and we also cooperate with fitness studios. Furthermore, various fitness offerings can be accessed online at any time.
Job-related stress or family conflicts? In these cases, our employees can take advantage of a consulting service by phone or personal coaching – always strictly confidential. We also offer seminars on topics such as the ability to recover, boosting resilience, and healthy management.
First aid can save lives in emergency situations. All Deutsche Telekom locations in Germany have trained first responders, who receive regular training. Other European national companies have similar measures in place. For instance, first responders at T-Systems in Slovakia receive interactive training for first aid and resuscitation every year.
Sitting for long periods at work can lead to health problems. That’s why ergonomic workstations are regularly inspected at Deutsche Telekom. These efforts in Germany are supported by health and safety specialists. At Hrvatski Telekom in Croatia, specially trained managers make sure employees work correctly at the computer.
