Company Anniversary, Cohesion, Values
Why did Karl Storz choose United Heroes?
KARL STORZ, an expert in the medical device since 1945, is active worldwide to support and consult customers around the globe. Across all continents, KARL STORZ is represented by more than 50 KARL STORZ subsidiaries in over 40 countries.
To celebrate its 75th anniversary and as a run-up to their Kick-Off Meeting 2021, they decided to gather the employees of the 15 Asian subsidiaries of the company around a joint project. In order to design an engaging and original event, KARL STORZ called United Heroes to motivate and engage employees from Singapore to Vietnam and Thailand even from home.
For its 75th anniversary, it wants to make a splash with an original project despite the health context

A collective and solidarity challenge to celebrate KARL STORZ anniversary
During the month of December 2020, KARL STORZ employees were motivated and active for a good cause. Each wellness activity performed was recorded by the United Heroes wellness app. The initial objective of the challenge was to collect a total of 75,000 points to donate 7,500 SGD to a Charity organization in the Healthcare field.
A goal that massively aroused the interest of employees who took part in the event. The initial objective was quickly reached and KARL STORZ had to revise his objective upwards. They collected 150,000 points and hence donated 15,000 SGD to the Vietnamese cancer foundation.
KARL STORZ continues with United Heroes corporate wellness app
Given the success of the anniversary challenge, KARL STORZ decided to pursue the adventure with United Heroes. Among other events, KARL STORZ now animates its employees around individual and collective wellness challenges: Season In The Run, and the KOM Fun Run where the objective was to complete 5 Km by walking, running, or hiking, as fast as possible!
Malaysia, Thailand, Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Taiwan, Cambodia, Philippines, Brunei, Indonesia, and Singapore: in total, 14 countries are taking part in these different challenges. These challenges connect people from different countries and teams. It also unites them around the KARL STORZ company culture.
