As an attractive employer, we strive to give our employees the means to cope and to respond to the demands of the world in respect to the working environment. Flexible working hours and the ability to structure an employee's work around them are a top priority at Interroll.
We believe it is important for each and every employee to be able to balance their job and their free time to the best of their ability. How? Two of our staff members would like to share their story.

"It is one of our aims to provide our employees with a good opportunity to do something for their health"
Especially the health of our employees is one of Interroll's primary concerns. This is why we have recently opened our very own state-of-the-art fitness studio at our branch in Germany.
"It is one of our aims to provide our employees with a good opportunity to do something for their health. In particular, the fitness circuit should provide an antidote and counterbalance to the tough demands of the world of work. But it is also very important to us beeing an attractive employer. This means not only providing a good working atmosphere, but also coming up with certain special things to encourage employees' long-term loyalty to the company. After carrying out our extensive renovation work, we have managed to create an excellent space for the fitness area and are very proud of this achievement." Armin, Managing Director Interroll Engineering GMBH
All in all, it is a really great success!
From the reactions of the various employees, we can conclude that our facility has met with a great deal of approval and has been very well received by our workforce.Currently, around 50% of employees regularly come to work out. The fitness circuit is available to all employees. Many colleagues from the production use it, some of them before their shift commences, and others once their shift is over. On the other hand, employees working in the offices tend to visit it between the hours of 16:00 and 18:00.
We have opened up the fitness circuit to retired employees too and we can even regularly note participants there.
It is great that some colleagues come in to the studio even when they are off on holiday, in order to keep up their training on our fitness circuit.We even invited our CEO, Mr Zumbühl, for a training session, which he actually successfully completed on his last visit. Mr Zumbühl was enthusiastic about the sports facilities available to our employees.
