Dubai, United Arab Emirates: The Oman Insurance Corporate Challenge 5.0 powered by LivFit and Rush-A-Way ended on a high note on September 28th 2019 where 50 organizations competed against each other to win the coveted title. During the fun-filled and thrilling competition, 94 teams with 4 members each participated in 7 action-packed challenges that were in different hotspots around the city. All participating teams assembled at The Metropolitan Hotel to kickstart the challenge.

Service Plan and Marsh won the second and third place with a cumulative score of 4320 and 4265 respectively. Redington bagged the Excellence Award at the Oman Insurance Corporate Challenge.

In this endeavour, the participants were tested on diverse abilities including physical endurance, presence of mind, team chemistry while having an exhilarating adventure with their co-workers.
The activities that were part of this competition included a Scavenger hunt at Mercato Mall, an escape game at SportsMania, a culinary challenge at Oregano, a team adventure at TEP Factor, a fitness challenge at GoldBox, an endurance challenge at Velocity and a DIY challenge at JamJar.
Julien Audrerie, Head of Marketing at Oman Insurance Companyemphasizes “A workplace culture sets the tone to the employee’s productivity and interest. Through this event, we aim to design a unique platform that allows corporates to strengthen team bonds and companies to engage with one another. It is a perfect opportunity for us to help people live a healthier life and encourage them to take charge of their wellness. We are very happy to be associated with Rush-A-Way and look forward to more such events with them in the future.”
Sharing a few thoughts on the participating at the Oman Insurance Corporate Challenge, Sarah Zahr, Business Excellence Manager, Xerox, says "Team chemistry is very important to our company as we truly believe that an engaged-workforce is crucial to achieving better business results. Sitting with your colleagues and spending 40 hours a week is one thing and having a day out with them is different on various levels. From engaging to understanding everyone’s strengths and working as a team, events like these are a major boost for corporate wellness."
Commenting on Delphi Consulting’s experience with the overall challenge, Ankit Bhutani, Head of Business Operations says “Oman Insurance Corporate Challenge is a great team exercise that gives all of us an opportunity to regroup outside the work environment. It has certainly brought our team closer and taught us that we could achieve our goals as a team regardless of our individual strengths and weakness.”
