The phrase isn’t just something we say at Zalaris. As a company dedicated to HR outsourcing in more than a dozen countries, it’s something we live out every day.
We also practice this within our own company. Creating a positive and uplifting work environment has long been a primary focus at Zalaris. We strongly encourage our employees to stay in good physical shape. Workplaces that motivate and encourage exercise are proven to improve employee job satisfaction, reduce sick leave and increase the opportunity to live a long, fulfilling life.
Since 2007, AKTIV Against Cancer has also worked to encourage physical activity, albeit for a different — yet often overlapping — group of people: Cancer patients.
We are currently conducting a fundraiser supporting AKTIV Against Cancer. I have seen many people affected by different forms of the disease over the years, and we cannot stand by and do nothing. We have long worked to help cancer research, including through participation in “Movember” and partnering with AKTIV Against Cancer since 2014.
Our goal is to deliver a big check to the organization on the 4th of August 2018, at the finish line of the Isklar Norseman Xtreme Triathlon (in which I am participating, to ensure I put my money where my mouth is!).
All of the money raised will go toward building more AKTIV Against Cancer physical activity centers called Pusterom (“Breathing Rooms”) in hospitals throughout Norway, where courageous patients can carry on with physical activity despite serious diagnoses.
Join us in this great cause by supporting our fundraiser or creating your own! Together, we can show cancer just how much we value people.
