In September and October, it was time again for Bike to Work in Switzerland. 1'851 companies participated in this year’s event – and of course Tillotts Pharma was one of them!
Bike to Work is an annual event promoting health and fitness in companies and encouraging commuters to use their bicycles more frequently on their way to work. Since its start in 2005 with 20 companies, more and more took part in the event each year, reaching almost 2’400 companies in 2019. The Bike to Work campaign was moved to September and October in 2020 due to the Corona pandemic, yet more than 1'800 companies took part.
Besides becoming more fit, aiming to stay healthy and enjoying some fresh air, there is an additional enticement to participate in Bike to Work: Teams and individual team members who cycle to work on more than 50% of the days automatically take part in the big prize draw with attractive individual and team prizes.
Six strong teams with a total of 22 team members from the Swiss Tillotts sites in Rheinfelden and Ziefen and even two colleagues from Tillotts affiliates signed up and committed themselves to coming to work by bicycle every day in September and October…or at least as often as possible!
Bike to Work even adjusted the rules to meet the needs of the current Covid-19 situation with many employees working a high amount of days from home: The new rules allowed participants to include private rounds on the bicycle on those home office days.
This year, the Tillotts teams covered more than 5'578 km by bike.
This campaign was again a great opportunity for Tillotts employees to do something for their health along the way, increase their fitness and challenge each other to cycle the extra mile.
