Corporate Health Program

Corporate Health Program (BGM)

The members of our staff are the most important resource for the success of the German Cancer Research Center! Their health and wellbeing are the basis of their motivation, their ability to perform and their commitment. DKFZ aktiv!, the Corporate Health Management Program (BGM) of the DKFZ commits itself to preserve all of them in the long run.

In a highly complex area of science such as cancer research, requirements are high. The compatibility of private life with working life is often challenging. As our members of the staff spend a large part of their time at work, it is of great concern to the DKFZ to provide everyone a healthy working environment – hence the framework conditions, structures, and processes. At the same time, our staff should be given the possibility to develop a self-determined healthy behavior.

Therefore, DKFZ aktiv! provides a broad spectrum of offers with regards to the behavior and the conditions. At the heart of our Corporate Health Management Program is a cancer prevention and early detection program. In addition, DKFZ employees have the opportunity to take advantage of offers for mental health, exercise, relaxation, smoking cessation, nutrition, ergonomics, corona, and much more. For that reason, a coordinated team-work between the Management, HR, Staff Council, Staff Medical Service, Safety Unit, Science, Cancer Prevention Unit, and further units of the DKFZ has been established and has proven its worth. With our external cooperation partners, the Institute for Sports and Sports Science (ISSW) of the University of Heidelberg, the Heidelberger Institut für Gesundheitsmanagement (HIG) and various health insurance companies, we have strong and long-standing experienced partners at our side. Within the Helmholtz Association and the Rhein-Neckar region, we are strongly networked and benefit from an active exchange of experience.
