Wie kann man als Arbeitgeber schwer erreichbare Mitarbeitende zu einer nachhaltigen, gesundheitsfördernden Verhaltensänderung anregen?

  • The health of employees has been gaining in importance for several years and has become a strategic competitive advantage over other companies. With the increased attention to the health of employees, the importance of corporate health management is also growing. In the meantime, the number of offers for health promotion in the company is increasing. Nevertheless, many employees cannot be reached with these offers. However, many of them would need to change to a health-promoting lifestyle. For this reason, it is even more important not only to concentrate on the sporty employees, but to create effective access to the inactive employees. Accordingly, this paper addresses the important question of how to reach these hard-to-reach employees and motivate them for a sustainable and health-promoting change in behaviour. For this purpose, a qualitative study was conducted through interviews with former participants of a behaviour change programme at the Horb plant of Bosch Rexroth AG. The focus was on answering the question on how to create access to the hard-to-reach employees. Moreover, the question was asked about ways to support employees in maintaining this behaviour. The research results showed that talking to employees in combination with a direct proposal for action is the biggest driver for change. This conversation can happen at different levels, through former participants and colleagues, managers, but also through experts or the company medical officer. Creating a programme for employees that is attractive and provides great benefits is crucial. A significant benefit is also the creation of a group dynamic. In addition, it is important for participants to both maintain the behaviour and receive support from the employer after the programme. By incorporating these strategies into the programme, the employee can successfully change their behaviour and subsequently sustain it.
