Answering the Corporate Challenge call for The Irish Sports Council

Certification Europe has answered the call of John Treacy, CEO of The Irish Sports Council and signed up to participate in the organisations ‘Corporate Challenge’ for the month of May.  Certification Europe has established an excellent team of swimmers, runners and cyclists in order to complete the Olympic Triathlon challenge every working day until May 31, 2012. The Olympic Triathlon challenge involves cycling 40km, swimming, 1.5km and running 10km every day.

The main objective of the challenge is to unite staff members in a sporting activity and to entice everyone to become active in their daily lives. The majority of people in Ireland work in sedentary roles; so encouraging people to become more active through sport can only lead to increased production and a healthy, energised workforce.

Paola Vercesi, Certification Europe’s Marketing manager has been coordinating the company challenge internally and commented that:

As we are a small and multi-site company, I believe that the Irish Sports Council Challenge is the perfect chance to improve our contacts with colleagues who work all over Ireland. Keeping in touch, supporting each other,  and contributing to the collective achievement from Dublin to Cork, and across Europe and the Middle East is what I called ‘Our Very Special Challenge’. I am extremely pleased to be partaking in the challenge together as a united team.

The Certification Europe team has shown extraordinary dedication to the challenge as participants have continued to uphold the daily challenge rota while abroad on business and while scattered throughout Ireland completing inspections and audits. So far we have completed the challenge in Italy, Saudi Arabia and Ireland proving that a company can be united in a challenge internationally, as it is the spirit of the team and not the location which matters.

We would like to thank énergie fitness club, Parkwest for giving us access to their gym for the duration of the challenge. The gym offers a wide range of classes and contains an excellent variety of sports equipment, in conjunction with extremely supportive staff members. All of which was greatly appreciated by the Certification Europe team.

You can view a video from The Irish Sports Council detailing the benefits of the challenge below.
