Perodua Organises “Fun Walk” on National Sports Day
The country’s compact car company organises a “Perodua Fun Walk 2016,” a 3KM walk around its massive 500-acre compound, for 1,000 of its staff and business partners in support of the National Sports Day.
The National Sports Day is an initiative under the Ministry of Youth and Sports which promotes a healthy and active lifestyle.
“This is the second year Perodua is participating in this programme as we firmly believe that having a healthy and active lifestyle would improve all activities – both in our personal and professional lives,” Perodua President & CEO, Datuk (Dr) Aminar Rashid Salleh said.
Participants of the Perodua Fun Walk 2016 began their walk at 9.00am and those who completed the course were eligible for a special lucky draw contest.
“We are looking to make this an annual event as we wish to include healthy and active living as part of our revamped “Safety, Health and Environment” safety guidelines,” Aminar said.
Aminar said that the guidelines place greater emphases on healthy living as quality begins with a healthy body and mind.
The Perodua Fun Walk 2016 is also part of Perodua Safety Month Campaign 2016, whereby the compact car company is emphasising the importance of both quality, health and safety among all its 11,000 employees.
“We believe that quality and safety both share the same component, which is discipline and hard work on everybody’s part,” Aminar said.
“We aim to minimise, if not eliminate all industrial accidents and we believe that the best way to do it is with an well informed and healthy workforce,” he added.
