Organisations involved in a Europe-wide campaign designed to get employers to better support workers of all ages, have been given awards for their good work.
The Healthy Workplaces Good Practice Awards, which took place this week, saw campaign partner SAP, an IT company in Germany win for its 'Run Your Health’ initiative. Judges said it empowered employees of all ages to take action for their health.
In addition, campaign partner Toyota Material Handling was commended for a physiotherapy programme to prevent strain injuries at work and to deliver measurable change across partner companies.
The awards were presented by Marianne Thyssen, European Commissioner for employment, social affairs, skills and labour mobility.
