31st August 2023, Mysore: Cummins (Meritor), a leading global technology and power solutions provider, has taken a remarkable stride towards prioritizing employee health and well-being through its collaboration with SportiWe. The inauguration of the ‘Sowkya’ initiative was held today at their Mysore campus, graced by the presence of senior leaders, managers, and union leaders of Cummins Inc. The event focused on the pivotal role of sports and recreation in enhancing employee health and productivity.

Mr. Nagaraja Gargeshwari, President and Director of Automotive Axles Ltd, addressed the gathering, emphasizing the significance of employee well-being in the modern workplace. He highlighted how integrating sports and recreation within the office environment can not only contribute to physical fitness but also create a positive impact on mental wellness and overall productivity.

Dr. Vijayakumar, the Medical Officer at Cummins Inc (Meritor), shed light on the growing health concerns affecting the current generation, such as diabetes and cholesterol-related issues. He discussed the importance of combating these challenges through various fitness activities and emphasized the potential benefits of a holistic approach to well-being.

Varun Gururaja, the Founder of SportiWe, expressed his enthusiasm about the partnership with Cummins Inc. He explained how SportiWe’s collaboration aims to provide comprehensive support to employees in achieving physical and mental wellness goals through engaging sports and recreational activities. He extended his gratitude to the management of Cummins Inc for providing this opportunity to collaborate.

K S Gururaja, Chairman of SportiWe and founder trustee of Asha Kirana, touched upon the importance of striking a healthy work-life balance. He underscored the significance of fostering an environment where employees can thrive in both their professional and personal lives.

The audience was made to pledge their commitment to cultivating a habit of engaging in physical activities every day. A mini walkathon inside the campus further underlined the importance of active participation.

SportiWe, a socially-conscious sports company designed in India for India, will play an instrumental role in this initiative. The company plans to engage Cummins Inc and Meritor employees in a variety of day-to-day sports and recreational activities by having an expert sports coordinator stationed on the campus.

A unique aspect of SportiWe’s vision is its commitment to hiring 60% ex-service men and army veterans. This strategy not only supports the growth of these individuals but also imparts values of dedication, service, and love for the country to the employees of various companies.

The ‘Sowkya’ initiative by Cummins (Meritor) and SportiWe marks an inspiring step towards cultivating a healthier and more vibrant workplace. By integrating sports, recreation, and holistic well-being strategies, the collaboration aims to foster an environment where employees can thrive both personally and professionally.
