DCH – International Organization of Human Resources Directors has signed an agreement with the European Association EAEF (Employee Assistance European Forum) for the international development of the European Sport and Healthy Company Award, handed annually by EHCA (European Healthy Companies Association) in the European Parliament in Brussels.
EAEF is the European Association that promotes the PAE (Programmes of employee support) in Europe. The Employee Assistance European Forum was established in 2002 as the voice for employee assistance professionals in Europe. Membership now includes over 60 professionals and organisations drawn from over 24 countries.
Thanks to the signing of the agreement, EAEF will support the project of EHCA with the international development of the European Sport and Healthy Company Award in the rest of Europe.
DCH and Aces Europe continue to work together to make the ecosystem of the awarded companies grow and promote sport activities between all the citizens in the European Union. This will also promote the private and public initiative with the aim of increasing the support for sport, not only from a professional point of view but also as a means of social cohesion and for the healthy improvement and the quality of life of individual citizens.
The awarded organizations so far, Cofares and El Pozo, have demonstrated commitment to sport, physical activity and healthy for employees, with own sport facilities or in cooperation with third parties or specific action programmes for workers as a means of healthy and sport.
