TCS Chennai runs for Fitness and Safety

 
April 1, 2016

Over the years, Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) has developed special initiatives to promote wellness among employees and the community through sports. In keeping with our philosophy that 'healthy individuals make healthy organisations', we have partnered with seven of the world's leading races including title sponsorships of the TCS New York City marathon, TCS Amsterdam Marathon, and TCS World 10k Bengaluru. At a local level, we organize several fitness events at different locations comprising treks, health walks and cyclothons. These fitness initiatives have struck a chord with our employees, who have now made fitness a way of life.

Taking cue from the enthusiasm and vigour of our employees, TCS Chennai is proud to organize the first edition of Fitness & Safety Run. An initiative by TCS Fit4Life and Safety First, through this run we aim to raise awareness on occupational safety and health among TCSers. Specially designed for our employees, this run will flag off on Sunday, April 3, 2016 from Chennai One campus in Thoraipakkam.

Come Sunday and around 3,500 employees will run in 10 km, 5 km and 3 km categories. Prizes will be awarded to the top three winners in the men and women's categories. This unique workplace-organized fitness and safety initiative is designed to inspire fun, fitness, safety and camaraderie in competition. Through this run, we hope to encourage our Gen Y employees, who comprise 80% of our workforce, to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

Though fitness and safety may seem as disparate subjects, TCS has found a way to merge the two through this Fitness & Safety Run in Chennai. Here's to a fit and safe life!
