When most of the employees at Lindström started working remotely, the company realized there was a great need to support their well-being under the special circumstances. Cuckoo Workout came to the rescue and the break exercise app got a warm welcome! Lindström employees call Cuckoo the energy boost of remote work days.
Lindström is one of Europe’s leading textile service companies with 170 years of experience in the textile industry. They offer a wide range of textile services ranging from workwear, protective equipment, mats, restaurant and hotel textiles to industrial mats and towels. Dedicated employees are one of the keys to company’s success. Lindström has a strong will to create a working environment with a respectful and positive atmosphere that makes success possible.
Break exercise app to help communality and well-being
“In the spring, when our staff that works in offices switched to remote work, we started to think of ways to support their well-being and coping”, say recruitment specialist Camilla Hanganpää and Head of HR Sami Laine. Even though most of the employees had already previously done some remote work, a switch to full remote work was a big change. That’s why the company decided to try out Cuckoo Workout and see how the employees feel about it.
“In addition we were also concerned about communality now that we don’t see each other every day. Communality is really important to us and Cuckoo Workout seemed to answer to these concerns as well”, Hanganpää and Laine continue. At the core of Lindström’s operations is We Care -culture that puts emphasis on caring for each other and treating everyone with respect. This culture of appreciation and caring is important, because it comes across to the customers too.
Energy boost for mental and physical well-being
One of Lindström’s employees who fell in love with Cuckoo immediately is Kristiina Tiilikainen. She has worked for the company for over a decade and had already dreamed of a break exercise app like Cuckoo: “We have previously been active too and done break exercise together on our well-being theme days, but this type of daily break exercise had been missing. It was a very positive surprise when I heard we get a break exercise program!”
