HOFFMAN ESTATES, IL, Jan 08 (MARKET WIRE) -- www.boschrexroth-us.com) -- "Wanna get away?" Southwest Airlines' clever adage for their marketing campaign could also apply to the average employee on a typical mundane day in the workplace. While hard at work delivering solutions and technologies to the world's industrial machinery industry, employees at Bosch Rexroth occasionally findtime for a well-deserved break. Luckily, they don't have to go far to enjoya few moments of interesting and often hilarious tidbits from around the globe. The company's "Creative Diversions" area on the web at www.boschrexroth-us.com/diversions is designed to inform and entertain visitors on a daily basis. Initially set up to celebrate the fun side of the engineering profession, the site has branched out to include music, videos, and even signs related to all types of workplace humor. What began as part of a Bosch corporate promotional contest has turned intoa hit for the Rexroth audience, including associates, customers and even the trade media. "Creative Diversions was our Rexroth USA entry in the contest," said Kevin Gingerich, director of marketing services in Buchanan, MI. "We concluded that engineers love humor, and that we could draw many new visitors to our website if we stopped being serious for just a few minutes. And so far, it's worked." Although the reach was good from the start, people have been signing up to receive the Creative Diversions webletter at a high rate. The webmaster receives numerous submissions for new diversions every day. For example, visitors can submit ideas for the "Funniest Viruses" or "Funniest English Translation." Visitors to the site can also enjoy a laugh by reading the "Top Ten Reasons NOT to Date an Engineer," and "You Know You're an Engineer If..." Interested engineers may also read about "Rexroth's Top Ten Projects," which lists the company's most ambitious and exciting industrial automation and assembly technology projects; or they may choose to learn about lean manufacturing, or other relevant topics by browsing Rexroth's "Top Ten White Papers."
