GAC Dubai new staff sports facility

GAC Dubai opens new sports facility for staff

DUBAI, January 17, 2017

GAC Dubai, a leading provider of shipping, logistics and marine services, has opened its new sports facility for staff members at its GAC Logistics Park in the Jebel Ali Free Zone.

The facility, which covers 675 sq m, was previously a parking area that GAC converted into a sports field for staff members and customers, said a statement from the company.

All refurbishing costs were covered through the money saved by GAC staff’s recycling efforts. The initiative was a direct result from employee feedback on how the company can improve staff health and overall well-being, it said.

During the cooler months, the sports field will also serve as a social hub where friendly competitions amongst staff, and even with customers, will be held. Future sport activities include basketball, cricket, volleyball, and group Zumba classes, it added.

Stuart Bowie, managing director, GAC Dubai, said: “This new sports facility is part of the GAC Dubai effort to encourage our colleagues to exercise regularly and maintain a healthy work-life balance.”

“We want healthier people and an even healthier company,” he added.

The facility was officially launched during a friendly match between the GAC Dubai management team and the distribution centre staff, it stated. – TradeArabia News Service
