Fit in the workplace Coached and accompanied by an approved physiotherapist the daily exercise program FIB (“Fit im Büro” or “fit in the workplace”) was especially designed and introduced at secureguard in 2014.

FIB is a voluntary exercise or calm down program of 15 minutes a day of payed time (independent of break times) and is adopted for every single staff. It was introduced for health prophylaxis as compensation to the mainly seating work in IT and was integrated in the everyday office work. Since 6 years the staff is still enthusiastic for FIB.
