A few inspiring words
“The happiness of our employees is one of our number one priorities, and health – which includes mental and emotional as well as physical health – is a key part of that. We encourage ‘Zomans’ to be active on a regular basis through sporting clubs and events. Dubai Fitness Challenge is the perfect opportunity to take this to the next level. It’s a great way to motivate each other to stay committed through friendly competition – we even arranged a raffle prize draw for all employees who took part. We kicked it off with a plank challenge and were blown away by the results. Not only did more than a third of our office take part, but the numbers were impressive, with the winner holding a plank for six minutes! This initiative has brought us closer together and has unearthed new passions in some while inspiring others to keep this up long after the challenge is over.”
