In 2011 the Energy@Work project at ING was given the name WELLBE@ING. The orange sports team is since then present on multiple sports events. Energy Lab also involves the ones that are not yet living a healthy lifestyle by promoting them to WELLBE@ING ambassadors and guide them towards a personal challenge. They are the perfect example that everyone can include sports in their life, which motivates others to try it as well. ING strongly beliefs in the power of healthy employees and made "energy" one of their main pillars in their business plan for the next 4 years (2016-2020).
Yearly Energy Lab coaches 80 international Adecco employees during the Win4Youth project. This project encourages all Adecco employees around the world to collect miles for the good cause.
Year after year new ambassadors are selected who will train together towards an ultimate challenge. Since 2012 the Adecco Win4Youth ambassadors participated in the Barcelona Triathlon, Athens Marathon, Col du Tourmalet and Triathlon Palma de Mallorca. In 2016 they will start in the Lanzarote Triathlon.
In preparation of this event all 80 Adecco Win4Youth ambassadors fly in to Energy Lab Belgium for a kick off weekend in which everyone gets to know one another and gets tested by our Energy Lab coaches. The weekend is filled with tests, workshops and sports events to start with a bang!

Since 2014 DEME employees are encouraged to live a healthy lifestyle. Quite a challenge as the DEME employees work worldwide on 5 continents and on ships far from home. The online platform is in this project the central communication tool to reach everyone. All employees were given a Garmin step counter to participate in the step challenge to collect miles for the good cause.
Every year DEME participates in different running and cycling events such as Climbing for Life, Antwerp 10 Miles, etc.
The healthy lifestyle is communicated via posters and funny activations on themes as "rethink your drink", "active meeting" and "eat well".
In 2016 Vopak Nederland celebrates its 400th birthday! This is celebrated by selecting 400 employees to participate in the NN Marathon van Rotterdam, and with success!
