Taking steps to win free shopping at the DIY
For this year’s GreenDay, ebm-papst had organized four campaigns, all of which focused on “get moving”.
Almost all day long, staff had the chance to take a closer look at the bicycles put on display at the Franconian manufacturer “Fränkische Zweirad Manufaktur” and to learn more about the job bike offer. This job bike offer allows employees to buy their favorite bike via their employer and even enjoy tax benefits doing so. Their instalment payments are comfortably and directly deducted from their monthly salaries or wages. ebm-papst Zeitlauf offers the job bike in cooperation with “Fränkische Zweirad Manufaktur”, and so our colleagues from Lauf had the chance to ask for more details at the manufacturer’s visit at ebm-papst. They could also go for a ride on any of their pedelecs, city- and mountain bikes.
From 11:00 to 11:30 and from 14:00 to 14:30, Matthias Trenz, market manager with ebm-papst Zeitlauf, presented the “Drive & Innovation” project. This project sees a conventional bike retrofitted and turned into an e-bike. Even more electric drive was provided to staff using company transport between the sites in Röthenbach and Lauf: Car dealer Friedrich had provided a BMW i3 – and this offer proved to be quite attractive and was heavily used all day. Throughout the day, the ebm-papst Zeitlauf Energy Scouts also informed on energy consumption in the company.
At 14:15, the presentation of awards for the step-counting campaign started in March took place. In this campaign, almost all of the 70 employees were given a pedometer which they were supposed to use until GreenDay. These three members of staff recorded the most steps on their pedometers and were presented with vouchers for their local DIY: Janet Haas (First), Elke Breindl (Second) and Pamela Gieron (Third).
All in all, the GreenDay 2015 proved to be quite a success in Lauf, and staff was particularly happy about the e-car shuttle service.
