2014 Annual Business Relay Challenge
Thorburn Northern Region entered 3 teams into this year’s Annual Business Relay Challenge, held the first weekend of October at Rietondale Park in Pretoria. Every year we participate in a number of road race days as part of our employee wellness program and team building initiative, by entering teams in we not only promote health and physical fitness, but a sense of pride and achievement in our organisation.
A total of 24 Thorburn runners took part in what has become a very popular event in Gauteng, supervised and co-ordinated by Thorburn Site Security Manager, Obed Nonyane. The Business Challenge Relay provides a relaxing and social environment in which organisations can compete outside the strenuous business environment and teamwork has become the central focus in all successful business environments. Without the commitment to achieve mutual goal and objective, even the most dynamic of environments will stagnate.
This event is organised to promote company involvement and teamwork in the best spirit of competition and our teams wore their “Proudly Thorburn” racing to success t-shirts as they were cheered on by their colleagues to victory.
