A Corporate Challenge with a difference

A Corporate Challenge with a difference

MASERU – The seventh edition of the annual Corporate Challenge will take centre stage on October 3.
The Corporate Challenge, which is organised by a local company, Black Mix, seeks to promote healthy lifestyles among workers.
The company says the event is designed to disrupt the “daily mundane office routine, boost company staff morale and improve communication amongst employees”.

The 2019 edition is scheduled for Maseru Mall and entries to join the festivities will close next Friday.
According to Black Mix director, Manisha Black, this year’s theme is “Spirit” and organisers will be hoping the event will continue to grow.
Since its inception the Corporate Challenge has grown from 300 participants to almost 800 last year and its popularity has been driven by the opportunity for employees to network with colleagues while enjoying the relaxed environment the event offers.

Black said participants come from more than 100 corporates and organisations across Lesotho and this year’s event has created over 80 temporary jobs.
“We want quality for the event instead of quantity and we would like to thank all the participants who made this event successful,” Black said at the event’s launch this week.
“We want to make sure that the Corporate Challenge is one of the most powerful platforms to build organisations’ team spirit, culture and employee wellbeing.”

This year the event will also offer participants the opportunity to have health checks. ‘Makopano Letsatsi of the Elizabeth Glaser Paediatric (EGPAF) AIDS Foundation said it will be supporting the Corporate Challenge.
“We are going to provide cancer and TB screening services as well as HIV testing,” she said.
“We are going to do a test and treat initiative; if the participant is (HIV) positive, they will have to take the treatment and, if (HIV) negative, they will be advised on different ways of prevention,” Letsatsi added.

Since October is cancer awareness month, the Corporate Challenge will also urge participants to get screened for various cancer signs because prevention is better than cure.
“We want to urge all participants to make use of this fantastic opportunity to help them prevent cancer and, in turn, help them live a happy, healthy, longer life,” Black said.

This year’s Corporate Challenge sponsors include Vodacom Lesotho, Metropolitan Lesotho, KFC, Maseru Mall, Builder’s City, Jam Session Sound, EFS Construction, Lesana Financial Services, Avani, Econo Foods, EGPAF, Data Deal, MM Building, Storm Enterprises, Trussdata, Vitality Health and thepost newspaper.
