IMDEA Software awarded at the 5th Edition of the Mutua Universal Health and Innovation Awards

The IMDEA Software Institute has been awarded the prize for the best innovative practice in health promotion in the category of small and medium enterprises by the Mutua Universal.

The 5th edition of the Mutua Universal Innovation and Health Awards recognizes innovation for the benefit of people and its awards are intended to distinguish and reward the work of those companies that are highly committed to health promotion and have carried out innovative projects or actions that represent an improvement in the quality of life and health of their workers.

The award-winning action ‘IMDEA Software ecoHealth’ was born with the approach of the new headquarters of the IMDEA Software Institute in 2009 and since then has been developed and expanded over time, as well as with the invaluable collaboration of its own workers.

The main objectives of the action are: promote ecological awareness; facilitate integration in a multicultural environment; offer possibilities for work-life balance; and maintain a continuous conversation over time on matters of general interest in order to advance and innovate by pursuing constant improvement for the entire staff.

The IMDEA Software Institute provides facilities for its workers to lead healthy lives and exercise: it promotes cycling by providing the car park with its own space; it has a multi-purpose room next to the changing rooms where sports activities can be carried out; it has a breastfeeding room; and, among other things, it is a cardio-protected space that offers its staff training to be able to apply it if necessary.

In addition, the Institute is a research centre committed with the environment. It has parking spaces with electric chargers, 100% ecological cleaning products are used and recycling is actively encouraged, and the automation system turns the building into an efficient space (Energy Class B).
