2020 has been an extremely difficult year for people across the world. As we struggled to adapt to a new normal it became increasingly important to seek an outlet that brought forth creativity, collaboration and commitment within our employees.
The Swedish Chamber of Commerce provided this much needed platform by organizing a virtual edition of the annual Swedish Championship. Spread over two months and with 22 participating companies, this engaging contest brought us all together in a collaborative initiative that was not just fun but also geared towards causes like sustainability and health that are critical to Scania and the world.
The championship included activities such as Ploging, Steps Challenge, Virtual Run, Online Chess, Short Film, Photography and many others. Teams from Scania India actively participated in several competitions and consistently performed well.
Anita Gupta made us proud by winning the 10km Women’s Virtual Run while Krishna Motapli was among the top 10 highest scorers in the 21km Men’s category. Nishanth Shekhar also secured a position in the top 10 of the 5km Men’s virtual run. Vidya Prasad was included in the Social Media Top 20 list, which commemorates participants for their active enthusiasm. Additionally, Ramanjanappa walked his way to victory by being included in the Top 50 winners of the steps challenge.
Our team at Scania also actively participated in steps challenge, rose to the occasion for plogging and contributed to the film making competition which was entirely scripted and performed by our colleagues from RPC.
Congratulations to all the winners and a big thank you to all the participants who put in their best efforts to represent Scania on a forum as prestigious as this. The Swedish Championship gave us a purpose, a spirited platform and something to look forward to in challenging times and we hope to come back stronger than ever next year
