Talanx “fittest Group” at the B2RUN in Hannover

This year, Talanx is competing with the biggest team entered by a Group in the B2RUN company run, with 425 registered employees. This achievement gives it the title “fittest Group 2016”. The runners and Nordic walkers in the Talanx Team come from different company sites within the Talanx Group, such as Hannover, Cologne, Düsseldorf, Essen, Hameln and London, and they include brands such as Hannover Re, HDI, PB insurers and Talanx. Like every year, the approach to the finishing line is in the HDI Arena, home stadium of local city football club Hannover 96, which the HDI Group supports with name sponsorship.

“Since I regularly run myself, I know from personal experience how beneficial this activity is. Sport is the ideal relaxation for the demands of the job,” explained Christian Hinsch, Deputy Chairman of the Board of Management of Talanx AG and Labour Relations Director, who will be taking part in the run. “I can see how active our employees are in pursuing sporting activities by our nomination as the “Fittest Group 2016”. I would like to take this opportunity to wish the Talanx Team every success in the B2RUN 2016.” The Talanx runners were also successful in the B2RUN 2015. They took second place both among the fastest women’s teams and among the fastest mixed teams. However, sport is not the only focus of this event for the Talanx Team, they are also concentrating on the common experience and communication between people working at different sites.

Talanx supports its employees with innovative health management in order to promote a better work-life balance. “The health of our employees forms the basis for their performance and diverse commitment in their routine work every day,” commented Hinsch.
Talanx offers its employees a comprehensive package of sporting options. These include numerous opportunities for engaging in company sports clubs such as running and dancing groups, courses for self-defence, function training and various ball games. Talanx also offers relaxation courses like yoga and Qigong. Employee sports sponsorship is also offered. For example, the Group takes responsibility for paying the entry fees to public sporting events, such as for the B2RUN Hannover. The employees also receive a function shirt with the Talanx logo.
