Childcare facilities

For working parents it isn't always easy to make sure that their children are looked after during working hours. This prompted Tönnies to introduce a Daycare centre at our facility in Rheda-Wiedenbrück in cooperation with the German Red Cross. This flexibility helps our staff to achieve a life/work balance and is part of our social responsibility.

Company gym

Sport is a great counterpart to business activity and perfect if you want to do something to stay healthy. What could be better than not having to drive a long distance to the gym? We offer our staff the opportunity to keep fit in our own gym at the Rheda facility. And the Fitness Lounge is a great place to meet people from other divisions and have a chat.

The  'Tönnies Fitness' gym equipped with a sauna and spacious lounge area, was completed early this year and offers the latest equipment for endurance training and muscle building. The gym manager and personal trainer compiles a training program for each member based on their individual needs. Besides training on the machines, the sports program includes nutrition advice, fitness courses, performance oriented training, a lounge area with drinks service, massage, problem area training, back exercises and the use of the sauna landscape.
