Ensuring a healthy and ergonomic workplace

Policy objective 1

Our ambition

The health of our employees and contractors is our responsibility too. We continue to invest in a healthy and ergonomic working environment. This enables us to guarantee a responsible and effective work situation throughout their careers.

Our objectives and practical examples

Maximum 3% short-term absenteeism

The percentage of short-term absenteeism of all permanent H.Essers employees is maximum 3% across all target groups.

Our own health programme: Fit2Grow

This programme motivates all our employees to work on their health individually or together with colleagues. It helps our employees exercise more and eat a balanced diet, at everyone’s own pace and with the advice of experts.

Creating a natural environment on our sites

We want to create a natural environment on all our new and existing sites that will inspire our employees. At least 15% of the surface will not be paved and will be designed to incorporate natural elements. This is not only valuable for biodiversity but also for the health of our employees.
