Samtec Inc. encourages its employees to live a diverse work/life balance that’s flexible and feasible to them. We promote team building among colleagues and get excited whenever we can share a post like this! A few weeks ago on June 22nd, associates from Samtec Microelectronics in Colorado Springs participated in their first “Bike to Work” event.
What is Bike to Work Day and how did Samtec participate?
Bike to Work Day is a statewide endeavor to provide a fun-filled, encouraging, and community building day for people to try a bike commute. The Luau-themed event started at Samtec Colorado Springs for a total distance of 4.6 miles. Afterward, associates were welcomed to join in a grab-and-go breakfast and start their work day on a positive note.
The goal of the event was to boost employee participation, increase the productivity of their workday, subside regular traffic congestion, provide a green thumb (I guess foot is the better term :)), and encourage overall wellness of Samtec employees. Such a neat event; will hopefully be an ongoing tradition! You can follow the Samtec Life Instagram page for more impactful stories on our associates.
Biking to work every day is doable, I’m sure, but most people prefer commuting to work the old fashion way. The next generation of eco-friendly products are growing at a rapid rate; as is the demand for a cleaner and more sustainable environment.
Samtec continually strives to reduce our global carbon footprint and integrate environmentally-conscious practices. We do this throughout our product design, manufacturing processes, and you guessed it, the action of our associates. Check out Samtec’s full sustainability report here.
