PROSE reaches the top 100 in the relay race StafettVasan 2017
For the first time, a PROSE multi-site team participated in the relay race StafettVasan in Sweden. In this relay, the traditional Vasaloppet 90 km is divided into 5 legs. 2310 teams in total started the competition, whereas only 1876 finished it. PROSE’s team reached position 93, with a total time of 5.05.58.
To participate in the team, all PROSE employees could nominate co-workers or themselves. Thereafter, the nominees had to motivate their participation by answering questions like “can you ski?” and “how will you contribute with PROSE-team spirit?”. After a long and tough jury deliberation, the team was formed!
Our team consisted of employees from the sites Munich, Stockholm, Västerås and Winterthur. Before the team went to Dalarna to get ready for the relay, the non-Swedish competitors were able to visit PROSE’s Västerås site, to meet some of their Swedish co-workers and to visit the city. During the race, we were able to track the team progress online thanks to the tracking devices the team members were carrying. PROSE’s skiers were accompanied by a motivated support team that cheered them on during the race and that documented the contest!
It is part of our corporate culture to bring all international employees together, in a fun way and through team-oriented activities. As a growing company, we believe in the importance of keeping our organization flat. Furthermore, we are committed to creating new ways to allow PROSE employees to get to know each other and to cooperate, even though we are located miles apart!
