HEALTH CARE

Health and well-being of our employees is of great importance to us.

Our employees can visit the on-site medical service at any time. They can be treated for minor ailments, receive information about family planning or medication on prescription and obtain referral notes for further examination in a medical center if necessary. The employees receive all necessary medications free of charge and visit the medial team regularly for routine and prevention checkups.

Besides the educational actions, the medical service also provides lunch talks on health-related topics (illness prevention, dental care, the importance of good nutrition and drinking water and so on). Next to water filtering system, that provide hot and cold drinking water, we distribute fruit, boiled eggs or yoghurt several times per week.
