Although the statutory regulation on BEM has been in place since 2004, the present analysis of the 2018 BIBB/BAuA Employment Survey shows that only around 40 % of potentially eligible persons received a BEM offer. Of these, almost 70 % accepted the offer. In smaller companies, in the craft and service sector, the proportion of eligible employees who have been offered BEM is even smaller than 40 %. BEM is more widespread in areas where workplace health promotion measures are implemented, where the management is supportive, and where cooperative behavior among co-workers is more pronounced.
