Philosophy of operational Health Promotion (BGF)
Operational Health Promotion is a corporate culture. It is encouraged by the key functions in the organisation, the line managers, in daily business and takes a sustained effect on the behavior of employees and conditions in the organisation. A health promoting corporate culture advocates individual responsibility of all employees and supports a wide enough scope for individual work tasks. The practical knowledge of the employees is systematically used to guarantee an efficient continuous optimisation of various work processes. The individual well-being is also accommodated for. In addition to organisational possibilities, individual resources should also be made use of and personal potential should be encouraged. Experience shows that for instance individual stress management strategies have a positive impact despite a failure of technically-organised aid.
