The day began with SDJ staff participating in a traditional ritual offering to Pachamama, the goddess of mother earth revered by the indigenous people of the Andes, seeking permission to climb the sacred mountain.
Mount Tuzgle holds cultural significance for the indigenous locals, with archaeological ruins at the summit. Locals from the Puesto Sey community were present to welcome us and share the folklore associated with the mountain. Delivered under the Health pillar of SDJ’s Shared Value strategy, this activity provided employees the opportunity to improve their physical fitness whilst interacting with contractors and members of the local community, helping to strengthen these relationships.
As part of prioritising the health and well-being of employees and ensuring a positive and constructive organisational culture, SDJ continually focus much attention on identifying opportunities to improve the health of employees, their families and all local community members. See below for a video of the ascent.
Physical recreation activities in the workplace are now globally accepted as helping to improve concentration and learning; increase personal confidence and self-awareness; reduce feelings of depression and anxiety; enhance self-esteem; and improve quality of life.
