You have probably heard that running is the best medicine for the body. Well, it’s not just a saying, it’s the truth. The health benefits of running are well known, strengthening your heart, working your muscles, getting your blood flowing and burning calories. What’s more, at Noark Electric we believe, that it also creates a team spirit and it’s a perfect way to keep employees engaged and motivated.
To combine a team building activities with the goal of having a healthy and fit organization, our HR department started a running challenge in the company.
It's also worth mentioning that the initiative came originally from a small group of employees from Prague headquarters three years ago with the aim to get to know colleagues better, motivate each other, stay active and at the same time have a friendly competition with the colleagues.
These values stay strong even today when more than 30 employees of Noark and Chint from Europe to China take part in this challenge. For this purpose we use Endomondo. It is a fitness app that helps you track your running activities and share your results with your colleagues to help keep you motivated.
At the end of the day, there's no better feeling than setting a goal, working toward it and achieving or even exceeding your expectations. This is true not only for running but in every field of life as well.
