This past year, PCA’s Gas City, Indiana, plant participated in the Corporate Challenge in the nearby city of Marion. Sponsored by the local YMCA and Marion General Hospital, this event is patterned after the Olympic Games and brings together people from area businesses through friendly competition and teamwork.
PCA Gas City participated in seven of the eleven events: softball, timed walk, golf, bowling, volleyball, cornhole and tug of war. PCA’s teams earned ribbons in both bowling and the timed walk.
According to the General Manager at Gas City: “Participating in the Corporate Challenge was a suggestion that came from our employee engagement committee. Our first year was a success, with about one-third of our employees and several spouses taking part in at least one event; everyone had a lot of fun. The positives from this year will only increase interest and excitement for next year’s corporate challenge. I see this becoming a perennial event for the team at Gas City.”
