On 26 May 2022, the employees of parts specialist TVH crowned their six-month sports training programme 'TVH Nudge Stars' with the Izegem quarter triathlon. Energy Lab guided 20 TVH employees, 13 colleagues from Belgium and 7 international employees, in the run-up to the race.
In December 2021, 20 TVH employees - the so-called TVH Nudge Stars - embarked on a sporting journey that would change their lives. Thanks to TVH the selected employees received six months of professional sports coaching to prepare them for this quarter triathlon. A personal training schedule was developed for each Nudge Star, they received a sports outfit in the TVH colours and intensive guidance of Energy Lab coaches was always within reach.
Encouraging healthier choices
The trajectory at TVH in which they were guided, is part of TVH's Nudge health policy. Through Nudge, the company encourages its employees to make healthier choices. TVH did so before by setting up initiatives around mental wellbeing, sports and healthy nutrition. So this year, they went even further.
Niki Mistiaen, Employee Happiness Advisor at TVH and organiser of the Nudge actions, explains: "Some colleagues were already regularly taking part in sports competitions before this programme, while others hadn't touched their running shoes or bicycle in years. After months of intensive exercising, with ups and downs, they delivered a very nice performance. There were even a few personal records broken."
