You can only really be there for customers and colleagues when you feel comfortable in yourself. When you get out of bed full of energy in the morning and enjoy your work. When you have the feeling that you are "future fit" and have enough energy after a working day to do things that make you happy. Sounds good, right?

Lely believes that paying attention to your health is very important. That is why we have started the #FitatLely program. A program for all our employees, in which we stimulate you to work on your own energy and health. On the social wall below you see how our people stay fit.

Why Lely?
