A fun fitness event was held in Letterkenny this week to help Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) find their newest fitness activity locally.
TCS and Letterkenny Chamber have teamed up for their first ‘Stay Fit @ Work’ event which took place on Wednesday on the TCS campus. The aim of this collaboration was to promote and connect TCS with local fitness industry experts and Letterkenny Chamber members.
The event was welcomed by TCS staff, as it reflected the strong emphasis within the company on encouraging and supporting well-being and fitness-based activity on campus and creating opportunities for positive lifestyle options for their employees.
Local industry experts with products and services to suit all levels of fitness showcased their offerings on the day. These included Letterkenny based companies Rushe Fitness, Zona Dance Studio, LK Bikes, Pinehill Studio, Brian McCormick Sports and Irish Physio supplies. Letterkenny is fortunate enough to be home to a large community of renowned fitness-based companies and experienced providers.
Commenting on the purpose of the ‘Stay Fit @ Work’ event, Toni Forrester, CEO of Letterkenny Chamber of Commerce said: “Many of our members are seeking opportunities to engage with the larger employers in the region – and larger employers, like TCS, wish to maintain strong connections to the local communities. Events like these are a great way for us as a Chamber to help create opportunities for members of all sizes and provide a way to connect, in person. We are thrilled to collaborate with TCS on the Stay Fit @Work event and hope everyone involved enjoyed the experience.”
This week’s event allowed those involved to connect with the campus of over 1,000 TCS employees of all ages, backgrounds and interests.
Chris Lynch, Head of Business Services at Tata Consultancy Services Global Delivery Centre commented on the event saying, “We are delighted to collaborate with Letterkenny Chamber on the Stay Fit @Work event this week. This is a great initiative which promotes fitness and well-being and supports our local businesses in Letterkenny. At Tata Consultancy Services, we encourage and support our staff to create opportunities for a healthy lifestyle. We believe it is important to offer our staff opportunities to link into the fitness community whether at home or on-site.”
TCS offers a hybrid working model, to adapt to the needs of the modern workforce while retaining a strong sense of culture and community.
