Tour de France cannot stop Arseus
Tuesday (10 July) the day stage of the Tour de France started in Waregem, which is also the town of the main location of zich Arseus, the Professional Health division of the group.
Police officials had recommended local companies in Waregem not to open their offices that day, as the main access roads were already closed for regular traffic from the early morning.
Nevertheless, Arseus decided to work that day: staff even came in earlier that day in order to avoid the traffic congestion. However, the working day ended a little earlier that afternoon as all colleagues assembled to watch the final phase of the stage on large-screen projection.
Many Arseus employees wore a Predictor-cap, illustrating their sympathy for their OTC-colleagues - even now that Arseus is heading for its IPO later this year.
