Oakland International Prepare for 2013 World Tour

Employees from Midlands based firm Oakland International have once again signed up to take part in the annual Global Corporate Challenge (GCC) which will begin on 23rd May 2013. Oakland International marketing and events co-ordinator, Hayley Smith, stated: “This is only the second time we have engaged in this type of event, but after the success of last year everyone was keen to take part again in this Global Challenge, which although virtual, is still such a tough and real challenge in every sense, as teams need to achieve set targets at the same time as working around existing working patterns. Having said that, it’s also good as we gain the health benefits of keeping fit whilst at work, and it’s really enjoyable.” Entering its tenth year, GCC is the world’s leading corporate workplace health and wellness initiative, which continues to be a remarkable global success with over 950,000 participants across 3,400 organisations in 105 countries benefitting, with each year more and more organisations taking part.
