200 Year of Carl Zeiss – Everyday Working Life in the 19th Century

The 19th century was shaped by industrialization, telecommunications, mechanization and scientification. Zeiss's ideas about social reform are extraordinary in any period: he started a company health insurance plan which offered free treatment, the reimbursement of medication fees as well as financial support in the event of an inability to work. #ZEISS #entrepreneur #history
