From the elaboration of the construction plans of our new hearquarter, we knew that we wanted to make an important place to physical activity at work. This is how we achieve to realise a training room custom designed for our employees.
« Even before the training room was ready we saw, little by little, small groups organizing themselves to go for a run during lunch time, do circuit training after work or even participate to obstacle runs on the weekends. It’s really those initiatives that proves us that there is a real desire to have an active life at work. »

As we know, physical activity in work place has a lot of advantages such as reinforcement of team spirit, increasing productivity and improvement of employee’s global health. It’s essential for us to provide to our employees a stimulating work environment, which also fit in the modern trend.
Moreover, the addition of 2 showers in the disposition of the employees assures us 1 point for the 4.2 credit on the Sustainable sites section of the LEED© project accreditation verification list. That credit also implies the installation of bicycle parking, which we did as well.
In a word, we are convinced that that space will be used wisely and will facilitate team bonding as well as reinforcing good habits…and inspire others !
