How can we extend not only our life-span, but also our health-span? Can we live a longer and well-balanced life, while still meeting the increasing demands of our modern, fast-moving society?
Putting the scientific visions of our institute into practice, the MPI for Biology of Ageing
has integrated the Occupational Health Management (“Betriebliches Gesundheitsmanagement”, BGM) as an essential element of the institutes’ corporate philosophy of sustainability.
A BGM steering group consisting of dedicated institutes’ representatives was founded in early 2018. The steering group is chaired by the BGM coordinators Ricarda Zaß (HR department) and Dr. Daniela Morick
(PhD officer) and can be contacted any time at bgm(at)age.mpg.de.
Together with the TK health insurance the BGM steering group targets multiple aspects aiming to promote and maintain the health and well-being of all employees. Those aspects include preventive as well as corrective measures, targeting both environmental conditions and individual awareness of the employees. (TK Report in german)
Specific actions include tailor-made measures such as health-days, lectures, workshops, business runs and yoga classes that are organized on a regular basis.
For supporting our group, giving feedback or seeking information on BGM related topics, all MPI employees are welcome to contact us any time!
