Through sport, we have the power to change lives

In Spartanburg, we have quarterly employee activities that incorporate sports. During March Madness we have basketball activities such as tournaments, and other fun. In the fall, we kickoff footbal season with flag football tournments and tailgating. In the Spring, we host a golf tournament for employess and their family & friends which benefit local charities. The sporting events allow our employees to take a break from work and have some fun. It relieves stress, allow the employees the time to take a mental break and re-focus and increases engagement. It also gives people the opportunity to network with their co-workers from across the company, people they would otherwise have very little contact with. And as we all know sport and physical activity lower stress level, increases mental clarity and increases engagement and productivity which is a benefit for all.
