Especially on stressful days people often eat chocolate or cookies. Both ot them release endorphins, but to be honest – they are beither good nor healthy for our body. Therefore, together with the managing directors, the RIDDER operational health management team (OHM) decided to introduce healthy and delicious snacks. Every month every department receives large baskets with fresh fruits from a local store.
Because we care about the health of our employees. The consumption of fruits strengthens our immune system, lowers cholesterol, has a beneficial effect on blood pressure and helps to protect from heart diseases and vascular blockage.
Of course, regional fruits have priority for us, this is why we decided to work with REWE Pebler situated in Nassau, who consciously pays attention to mainly selling fruits and fruits from our region.
For five years we support the ‘Aktion Mensch’ organization by buying their annual lottery tickets and give them each of our employees as a little Christmas gift. With that, we not only bring joy to them but we support social projects at the same time. ‘Aktion Mensch’ is completely financed by the sales of the lottery tickets. The social organization helps to improve the living conditions of humans with handicaps, children and teenagers. Around 3.9 billion euros went into the funding for social projects. We are proud to be a port of the “Das-Wir-Gewinnt” project and will continue to support it annually by buying their lottery tickets for our employees.

On 13.12.2019 we celebrated our yearly Christmas party at a nice restaurant in Nassau and were happy to welcome almost all of our employees. The location was great and the buffet also left nothing to be desired. The evening was filled with a lot ot entertainment. In addition to a speech by the managing directors, in which many employees were mentioned by name, there was also a review presented as a funny story, supportet with pictures and videos of the year. And the trainees also took part of the evening programme: They prepared and lead a Christmas game: Pictures have to be painted and odors and Christmas songs (played backwards) must be guessed. Overall it was a great evening and we wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a good start into the new year!
Around 2,000 children in Germany get sick due to cancer every year. This sad fact moved us to do something good with our Christmas greetings to customers and employees. We made a conscious decision to buy the christmas cards from a company that works togehter with the foundation for children with cancer.
The foundation is based in Bonn and wants to help and support the parents in this hard time. In 1995 it was founded by the umbrella organization of regional parent groups "German Leukemia Research Foundation, Action for Children with Cancer" (DLFH).
With every Christmas card we automatically donate € 0.20 to the german foundation for children with cancer. Every little amount can help. You can help, too! https://www.kinderkrebsstiftung.de
