Mercedes-Benz Oman engages staff at ‘Team Fit’ Day
Muscat – As part of the “Mercedes-Benz. My Passion” internal training programme, Zawawi Trading Company LLC (ZTC), the Exclusive Distributor for Mercedes-Benz in Oman organized a ‘Team Fit’ day to promote health and wellbeing amongst its staff. Held at Muscat International School and under the expert guidance of MOSAIC Sports, ZTC staff enjoyed a fun-filled day of football, rounders and basketball tournaments.
“Team Fit is a concept that has been created for our staff and reflects the commitment of ZTC to investing in people development through sports,” explained Clive Hammond, CEO Automotive. “At Mercedes-Benz we prize our highly skilled and dedicated staff. They are central to achieving the Mercedes-Benz 2020 Vision for Best Customer Experience, which prides itself on the successful delivery of exceptional and professional level of care”.
“But a high-achieving workforce needs to be fit for the job – not just in terms of appropriate levels of skills training but in terms of optimum health and physical well-being. We service our vehicles regularly, and to an extremely high standard, but so often, with the multiple demands of career and family we are not always able to pay that same level of attention to our own bodies. Recognising this, we have designed Team Fit to help our staff put the focus back on themselves and to embrace fitness as a lifestyle choice.”
Recent studies show a clear relationship between health and efficiency and highlight that companies with a physically active workforce reap the benefits of a staff that not only has better general health, energy levels and self-confidence but is also more achievement oriented and more willing to take on leadership roles.
Clive Hammond concluded: “By prioritising the health and well-being of our staff, we are encouraging our team to bring the best of themselves to the workplace every day and thus ensuring we continue to deliver excellence in customer care. It’s a win-win for everyone.”
Committed to developing talent through sports, ZTC is also a proud sponsor of MOSAIC Sports, the provider of the Arsenal Soccer Schools Oman Programme. The programme gives children of all ages and abilities the opportunity to receive professional soccer coaching. ZTC’s involvement in this youth development initiative is part of the Automotive Division’s broader corporate social responsibility programme
