Robert Bosch Kft. triumphs as fittest company of 2019

The Budapest Bosch site has reached first place in the Company Run event series for the second year in a row, making it the fittest corporate community of 2019. The associates of Robert Bosch Kft. ran a total of 11,120 kilometres, swam 400 kilometres and cycled 1950 kilometres in seven Company Run events to finish as absolute overall winners. Roughly 400 employees participated in the contests, with more than a thousand entries filed.

The eight-round Company Run competition is an exclusive contest for companies, institutions and workplace communities. Contestants of individual or pair figures must all be employees, family members, partners or customers of Bosch, while in the case of relays only the majority of contestants must fulfil said requirements. Last year, more than 12,000 contestants from 700 companies took part in the running, swimming, cycling and triathlon events of this nationwide, well-known series of competitions. The final rankings comprised the sixty-three companies that had taken part and gained points in at least four of the eight rounds. As in 2018, the team from the Bosch site in Budapest has once again scored the most points overall.

In the colours of Robert Bosch Kft., 320 ran in the marathons, half-marathons and relay races, with the total length ran equalling the distance between Budapest and Buenos Aires. Seventy-seven company associates swam in the trans-Balaton and Lake Velence races, and thirty participated in the cycling competition around Lake Tisza. At the Company Run award ceremony, András Somogyi, Human Resources Director of the Bosch Group in Hungary, said, “We are proud that Robert Bosch Kft. has become the fittest Hungarian company for the second time. We believe that regular exercise is fundamental to the creativity and enthusiasm of our associates – and consequently fundamental to the company’s success and innovation.”

Bosch associates at all sites - Hatvan, Miskolc, Maklár and Eger - are encouraged in various ways to take up a healthy lifestyle and do sports. Through its internal communication, Bosch also promotes competition among associates. The company supports workplace sporting communities in various ways, such as providing application fees and entry tickets, providing strips, renting sports facilities, and providing training, trainers and equipment. Bosch associates can participate in a wide range of health care programs and have regular screening tests. The KSF (Kultur, Sport und Freizeit) organisation in the Budapest headquarters, established in 2013, has more than 2200 members. Forty-five societies for various sporting, cultural and leisure activities have formed up so far within the KSF framework.
