In order to support our employees in achieving their sports goals, we have launched an application for recording physical activities. Employees, regardless of location, can participate in games and freely communicate in groups related to their passions. The application is available both in the web browser and on smartphones, which means that the fitness culture accompanies our employees every day – also after hours.
The Santander GO! website also helps to find training partners, get advice from more experienced colleagues or just get active.
Some of the activities in the application, thanks to the partnership with the Santander Foundation, also have a charitable purpose. For instance, after reaching a certain pre-defined target e.g. the number of kilometres travelled, the Foundation makes a donation to a noble cause. In this way, each employee, even through recording a short walk, makes a contribution to supporting those in need. Among more than 80 activities that can be recorded on the website, there is also corporate volunteering. Each employee volunteer can share his or her emotions and encourage others to join in.
A regular video in the formula of sports news is also broadcast
The persons featuring in the programme are our employees who inspire each other to undertake activities that serve their health. We talk about people who took part in competitions, are preparing for a marathon or have found a great place to practice. We emphasize their successes, including the smallest ones which lead to larger goals.
throughout the whole week, employees can benefit from consultations with physiotherapists or nutritionists and take part in workshops and webinars with experts. This is the time when we provide information on how to deal with stress and how to find a proper balance between private life and work.
