Kieselmann’s motto from 15 May to 15 September 2017: On your seats, ready, go! For the third year in a row, the “Ride Your Bike to Work” campaign encouraged employees to jump on their bikes. 61 cyclists pedalled to work for four months. There were two more riders than in 2016, and were able to do a remarkable 12,250 kilometres. But we still didn't beat last year’s kilometres.
Biking pleasure and the good cause were in the foreground during this “KIESELMANN active” programme. As part of the campaign, the company is again donating a sum of money to the " Familienherberge Lebensweg ", a regeneration site for families with critically ill children. “The KIESELMANN active programme is our way of promoting the health and well-being of our employees. With our donation to the “Lebensweg Family Shelter” we would like to make a small contribution to support those who offer families with critically ill children relief from their daily challenges”, said KIESELMANN managing director Klaus Dohle. More information about the work of the family shelter can be found at: www.familienherberge-lebensweg.de
In order to boost the athletic ambition of the participants, there was also a prize drawing this year. The drawing included everyone who lived more than 1 km away from the company and came to work at least 25 times by bicycle or e-bike during the campaign period.
