This year’s week 37 was EDC HealthAhead Week. For 5 days employees were able to take part in various contests and initiatives raising awareness about health and well-being.
The week started with the Healthy Game – a puzzle with a valuable prize: “Sushi Master Live Cooking Show” at lunch time for the whole team of the winner. Among the 70 received puzzle solutions, the quickest was from Karol Korytkowski who watched various sushi preparation techniques accompanied by a lecture on sushi culture and ate delicious sushi rolls with other 50 employees.
Instead of the usual Fruitful Wednesday, fresh fruit was distributed in social rooms every day. All in all, it added up to 6000 apples, nectarines, bananas, peaches and pears – more than a tone of fruit! Additionally, on Wednesday employees were offered complimentary fresh juice – 300 litres in general.
On Thursday employees had a chance to pamper themselves a bit by attending a complimentary massage and on Friday they could participate in obesity-risk assessment examinations. A dietician analysed employees’ dietary habits and provided tailor-made dietary and lifestyle recommendations.
Yet the highlight of the week was The EDC Soccer Cup. 16 teams were divided into 4 groups and competed throughout the week with ability and passion. And although all teams were exceptional, the cup rules cannot be escaped and not everyone could make it to the podium.
The cup was won by “No name”: Maciej Mieszkowski, Marek Lazarczyk, Krzysztof Korzepski and Jakub Gmurczyk. The second place was taken by „Batman Forever”: Wojciech Witkowski, Grzegorz Piersa, Mateusz Handzel and Pawel Dmochowski, a the third by “Aero DTL”: Artur Flis, Piotr Obarski, Tomasz Sienkiewicz and Tomasz Egert. The Top Scorer Award went to Mariusz Orzylowski.
Congratulations to the competitions winners but the truth is that we all won by taking time to stop and think about our health and well-being.
