On October 22, 2022, a fantastic group of 70 wellbeing ambassadors from The Adecco Group, from 35 different countries, gathered in Lanzarote to achieve one common goal: complete their first triathlon as one global team.
Five months ago, a virtual kick-off signaled the start of the preparation phase for the Ocean Lava Traithlon Lanzarote, an Olympic-distance triathlon (1.5km swim, 40km bike and 10km run). During this preparation period the participants were followed online by sports coaches and a nutritionist from Energy Lab. The team spirit was also further developed on the basis of monthly online group sessions.
Win4Youth is not about sport or winning, but about wellbeing in general, and how this group of ambassadors can inspire their colleagues and environment to take care of their own wellbeing. They learned to swim, cycle and run under the guidance of our coaches, they prepared themselves mentally and physically and did this with a common goal as a group. This amazing journey reflects our shared understanding of wellbeing, which is not just about physical wellbeing, but also mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing.
This milestone concludes the first year of these wellbeing ambassadors. They will now all use this experience next year to make an impact by starting up local wellness labs in their country, improving wellbeing within The Adecco Group around the world.
