Nursing staff are provided with an electric car free of charge at the Aschaffenburg-Alzenau clinic and the employer also bears the costs for insurance, maintenance, repairs and charging the vehicles with electricity, as the clinic reports in a press release.
"We would like to support our nursing staff! They have a demanding job and we would like to take care of them," explains Sebastian Lehotzki about the project. "Such a vehicle is a very practical support in everyday life and also expresses our appreciation for the employees."
The hospital has concluded a leasing contract with the vehicle manufacturer Mazda for around 600 fully electric Mazda MX-30. The cars would be made available to the employees, initially free of charge for two years.
The Klinikum Aschaffenburg-Alzenau is a municipal hospital that, according to its own information, is one of the ten largest hospitals in Bavaria, summarizes the specialist portal KMA. It has around 2500 employees. The sponsors are the city and district of Aschaffenburg.
Managing Director Lehotzki is pursuing several goals with his unusual deal, as he informed KMA. Ideally, the offer makes his company so interesting as an employer that he gains new nursing staff. Currently 60 to 80 of the jobs in the care sector are vacant.
