Taking responsibility for a healthy and sustainable world
For more than 30 years, we are unlocking the plant universe for better lives. For this purpose, fostering resilience among the big 3: people, animals and the environment, has and will always be a path worth going.
Act what you preach
Implementing resilience is a life-long journey and a muscle that needs to be trained regularly.
Therefore, it takes endurance, the willingness to change and often requires a mindset shift. However, the effort will pay off.
A strengthened immune system, a less stressful day and aconscious and solution-oriented handling of resources are only some of the commonly-mentioned advantages.
What is resilience?
Resilience is the ability to withstand adversity
and bounce back from difficult life events.
Being resilient does not mean that people don’t experience stress, emotional upheaval, and suffering.
Moreover, the global pandemic was also a huge accelerator and pushed back resilience as one of the top priorities on our agendas. Besides our vital contribution with our phytogenic solutions, we decided to create awareness for resilience with an internal initiative.
Dream big, start small: Every initiative can make a difference
At Delacon, we believe that it needs healthy people for a sustainable and healthy organization. Especially the workplace can have a strong influence on our overall resilience. This is underlined by a study conducted by the Disease Control and Prevention Center. They found out that one-quarter of all employees worldwide name the workplace as a high stressor in life.
With all that in mind, we recently kicked off our resilience awareness program and used the occasion of the World Day for Safety and Health at Work on April 28, 2021, to take one day off.
Time well spent: Nature, family, sports
Storyteller, foodie, life-long learner – may be the three words that describe me best. Unfortunately, you cannot make a living by only eating food, even though it’s healthy. Therefore, I have developed my skills in Marketing, Online Communications and Content Management to enlighten people around the globe about the power of nature and its contribution to animal as well as human health. Since February 2022, Marlene started a new career path outside of Delacon.
