Fitness, nutrition and recovery: the fuel to propel our business machine. It’s no secret that human beings require energy to perform well. When tired, under pressure, we’ll need the energy to execute sound judgment and stay committed. This is why we invest in energy-programs that take care of our most precious resource: our human capital (a fancy way of saying: our people!) We believe that exercising, eating well, and proper recovery are necessary daily practices.
