Through sport, we have the power to change lives
"Sport is at the core of everything we do in the CIS in Moscow. Our employees take it as their personal mission to change people’s lives through sport, most importantly, serving by example. To serve as an example, our employees set ambitious goals in various sports, actively engage their customers, family and friends into sport events all around the region. Sport communities are an essential part of our corporate life. These are cross-country skiing, fitness classes, CrossFit, run clubs, Outdoor community, basketball and football teams, to name a few.
We are pioneering the market with Be More Human races sending a powerful message to the fitness generation and helping 13,500 people to be the best version of who they want to be. We are leading the marathon movement transforming sports culture with more than 55,000 people utilizing the energy of running in Moscow, Kiev and Almaty. Preparation for the World Cup 2018 creates a football fever that is bringing together the adidas football community of millions of people – all with our employees being the greatest ambassadors by sharing passion for sports."
Careers without borders
Our market has many employee success stories. An example we would like to share is Shamil Zamanov’s story. Shamil started his career in Ufa as a stockman. Soon after he was offered a promotion and took a position in Kazakhstan without any hesitation. Later he worked in 5 regions across the CIS and today he is a Regional Operations Director in the Far East Region of Russia.
Pioneering the future of work
No matter what the occasion is or how many people are involved– it is always about the space that creates the atmosphere. We have the best facilities for sport and for work, sometimes our office even turns into the adi airlines airport or James Bond villa. Take a look.
Sport needs a space
Being a part of a mission that changes people’s lives is always a great responsibility. Being a part of a great team which sees every challenge as an opportunity provides inspiration and motivations to make this world a better place. This is how our CIS team goes beyond all limits to give sport a better place and shape lives for the better through sport.
Collaborating with those who inspire us
We have many Brand Ambassadors who take part in our corporate events. Every month within a master class the most outstanding Russian athletes, coaches, sport commentators and legends of the Russian sport culture share their passion for sport, confidence and life experience.
