Focus on sustainability and employee well-being: Bertschi's Bike to Work Challenge

Bike to Work


With great enthusiasm and the radiant sun behind us, Bertschi plunged into the Bike to Work Challenge for the first time this year. Ten teams, consisting of a total of 40 motivated participants, took on the challenge and cycled to the office throughout the entire month of June. The weather seemed to be on our side, accompanying us on our cycling adventures. Together, we covered an incredible 7,644 kilometers and proudly saved 1,101 kilograms of CO2.


The motivation for participation in Bike to Work was multifaceted and combines two essential aspects of our company culture: sustainability and employee well-being. A fit workforce not only helps individuals perform at their best, but also builds team spirit and creates a positive work environment. Therefore, the promotion and motivation of healthy employees are always at the forefront of our Lifestyle & Health initiatives. On one hand, we aimed to improve the fitness of our team members. Through regular cycling, they were able to enhance their endurance and promote an active lifestyle. On the other hand, participation was also focused on fostering a sense of community.



In addition to our annual participation in the Hallwilerseelauf and our support for regional soccer tournaments and marathons, Bike to Work is another way for our employees to be physically active and improve their well-being.  At Bertschi, we support sporting activities not only at our headquarters in Switzerland, but also in our subsidiaries around the world. From participating in marathons in Romania to starting a softball team in Houston, Texas, we are committed to improving the cohesion and health of our employees through various sports engagements.



Participating in Bike to Work was not only a physical challenge, but also an important contribution to sustainable mobility. By leaving their cars at home and cycling to work, our employees made a significant contribution to climate protection. The 1’101 kilograms of CO2 saved is an impressive result that underscores Bertschi's commitment to a more environmentally conscious future.

Bike to Work was a great success for Bertschi and clearly demonstrates our strong dedication to sustainability and employee well-being. As part of our Lifestyle & Health initiatives, we will continue to promote physical activities and measures for the overall well-being of our employees, aiming to create a healthy and sustainable work environment.
