The Health and Education Center
Taking on social responsibility has always been a major part of Groz-Beckert's corporate philosophy. The Health and Education Center (GEBIZ), opened in 2013 at the headquarters in Albstadt, is an obvious example.
For Groz-Beckert such actions stem from the conviction that a commitment to education and responsibility is everyone's responsibility – including the company's.
With the healthcare area, the company encourages the well-being and health of its employees and proactively meets the challenges of demographic change. The facilities of the healthcare area work hand in hand to ensure an integrated and holistic concept for prevention and rehabilitation, including as defined within the context of company health management.
With its education department Groz-Beckert supports a family-friendly corporate culture which facilitates work-like balance for young families, a core issue in many mens' and womens' plans for the future.
As operator of various facilities at the GEBIZ, Groz-Beckert has brought in experienced partners with a wealth of know-how.
Facilities at the Healthcare Department
From Groz-Beckert's company health insurance fund and plant medical service to the newly created Malesfelsen Vitality Center, all healthcare divisions at Groz-Beckert are under one roof.
Malesfelsen Vitality Center – Prevention and training
The Prevention and Training area at the Vitality Center in Malesfelsen is open to all employees of Groz-Beckert at the site in Albstadt and its subsidiaries. Former Groz-Beckert employees and members of the Groz-Beckert company health insurance fund can also use the area.

The rest area with sauna and infrared cabin provides for a relaxing wind-down after working out.
Malesfelsen Vitality Center – Physiotherapy practice
The physiotherapy practice at the Malesfelsen Vitality Center is approved under health insurance schemes and is thus available to all. The practice boasts three treatment rooms, one therapy room and a room for device-supported physiotherapy.
The team of experienced and qualified physiotherapists provides professional expertise in maintaining and regaining health. All conventional benefits are thus provided.
Comprehensive private benefits such as wellness massages or kinesiotaping round out the broad spectrum of services.
Groz-Beckert company health insurance
Goz-Beckert company health fund is corporate company health insurance for the employees of the company and their families. The beginnings of today's Groz-Beckert company health insurance hark back to 1888, the founding year of one of the first factory health insurances anywhere.
These days the Groz-Beckert company health insurance is a modern service provider. It is embedded in the health department and provides its policy holders with a major advantage - personal on-site assistance, short paths and an understanding of colleagues' daily work routines.
The long-term commitment of the pension plan sponsor gives theGroz-Beckert company health insurance and its clients long-term security. The success of Groz-Beckert is one of the factors which allow the company health insurance to offer special benefits.
Company medical service
Despite scores of occupational safety and prevention measures, accidents and emergencies can happen in the daily routine. To meet such situations head on, Groz-Beckert provides company medical service which is housed in the GEBIZ.
The team, consisting of a company doctor, plant paramedic/emergency medical technician and a medical assistant, covers prevention and advice, preventive medical care and first aid in the event of a work accident or emergency.
The team is complemented by many Groz-Beckert employees who have been trained in-house as paramedics and first aiders.
The Education Department
Forming a tightly coordinated unit within the Education Department together with the "Kita Malesfelsen" is the private elementary school "Malesfelsen" with all-day day-care.
The Kita Malesfelsen is a private day-care facility for children from the age of 0 to school enrollment. The Kita disposes of a total of 40 spots for children three and older and 40 spots for children from 0 to 3 years.
Children are looked after by age, but at the same time there are opportunities for age-independent learning. The changeover between instruction and free play ensures equilibrium between stimulation, making demands and playing.
Kita and the elementary school form a tightly coordinated unit. The shared pedagogical concept is based on the idea of placing the child and its perception of the world front and center. German and English are spoken in the entire facility.
The supporting organization of Kita is the day-care center Malesfelsen GmbH, a subsidiary of Groz-Beckert KG. The Klett Group is partner in education and operator of the facility.
Private elementary school Malesfelsen
Alongside a daycare center it made sense for Groz-Beckert to open an elementary school because daycare issues usually begin for parents after the kindergarten years. The two facilities form a tightly coordinated unit. The shared pedagogical concept is based on the idea of placing the child and its perception of the world front and center.
The school focuses content on scientific and technical areas, on a solid foundation in mathematics and German, and also on integrated bilingualism in German and English. The full-time schedule means the school offers more time for learning, companionship, sport, games, technology, art and music, as well as a well-balanced daily routine.
Private school Malesfelsen is an officially recognized elementary school. Instruction is based on the curriculum for Baden-Wuerttemberg.
The supporting organization is the elementary school Malesfelsen GmbH, a subsidiary of Groz-Beckert KG. The Klett Group is partner in education and operator of the facility.
