Greencarrier Health Challenge 2021

By Tea Grbic, June 23, 2021

Together we truly believe that we can make a difference. For the 2nd time, our Greencarrier employees did a 6 weeks health challenge internally.

This challenge was a great success internally last autumn too, but during this spring it reached a new level with great engagement. Our employees have competed in teams, collecting points against each other, as well as motivated and inspired each other to more healthy everyday habits and exercising, whilst having fun together. We are also extra proud to say that we have bee more active than an average partner to Challengize.

– We believe it’s important to encourage to physical activity with all the benefits connected to that. With this health challenge during this spring, we wanted to involve all of our Greencarrier colleagues, to inspire and encourage each other for all kinds of different activities. At the same time, we also wanted to do something fun together. The ambition has been to increase our wellbeing and to create a united team feeling internally. It has been great to see all engagement from all amazing colleagues all over the world, cheering on each other and engaging with each other, says Charlotte Bernerheim, HR team Greencarrier Group.
