Activities for personnel
Staff Assocation (Biopeace)
Biopeace is the Staff Association of Shimano in Nunspeet. Biopeace has the goal to strengthen the relationship of the employees of Shimano. This Association has over 250 members spread over the offices in the BENELUX. In the past years Biopeace organized a lot of activities, such as the annual St. Nicholas party (every year), a visit to Snow World, musicals, the casino, a football match, a tour through Rotterdam and a weekend in IJmuiden.
As Shimano’s philosophy is ‘to promote health and happiness through the enjoyment of nature and the world around us’ Shimano has a Sports Committee who organize events in which colleagues can participate. As many of our employees have an enthusiasm in different kinds of sports, we organize different sportive events for all levels. We emphasize on events with our products in both angling and cycling. We participated as a team in the Amstel Gold Race, Marathon of Eindhoven and went fishing in the Biesbosch in recent years.
Furthermore, we believe in activities for all and therefore, organize clinics for all levels in mountain biking, road racing and servicing.
