3 weeks, 24 members, 7,259 kilo­me­ters – the STADT­RA­DELN team of the Baden-Würt­tem­berg-based solar company hep set a new company record in this year’s STADT­RA­DELN of the muni­ci­pa­lity of Güglingen. In total, a proud 1.07 tons of CO2 were avoided. Despite adverse weather condi­tions, “Team hep“ clearly surpassed its previous year’s perfor­mance of 6,051 kilo­me­ters. The goal was to cycle the straight distance of 7,113 kilo­me­ters to hep Petra’s US colleagues in North Carolina.

Move More in a Team and Moti­vate Others
After months of corona-related home office, the STADT­RA­DELN was the ideal oppor­tu­nity to revive the special hep spirit. The sense of commu­nity and the mutual moti­va­tion were two important reasons why the previous year’s perfor­mance of 6,051 kilo­me­ters was clearly surpassed this year, despite a few days of bad weather. 

New this year was that hep accom­pa­nied the STADT­RA­DELN with its own campaign via internal chan­nels and social media. A great success, as the posi­tive response of the employees showed.

hep Lives Toge­ther­ness
Commu­nity cohe­sion and good coope­ra­tion are elemen­tary compon­ents of the hep DNA. “We are parti­cu­larly proud of the strong hep spirit“, says Chris­tian Hamann, CEO and one of the hep foun­ders. Team spirit and cohe­sion are not only demanded in the daily work routine, but also promoted through addi­tional events. This year’s plans include joint hiking days in the Allgäu region and the summer barbecue, Corona condi­tions permitting.

In addi­tion to active toge­ther­ness at team events, social inter­ac­tion is also consi­dered in many ways in the construc­tion of the new main buil­ding in Eppingen. For example, new work criteria are inte­grated into the plan­ning process of work­sta­tions, designing meeting rooms, and lounges and canteen areas. “At our company, employees should feel comfort-able according to their indi­vi­dual needs – after all, they are an important part of our sustainable corpo­rate success“, says Chris­tian Hamann, explai­ning the inno­va­tive concept.
