PPD's Indoor Soccer Team

soccer, wellness, work life balance

PPD colleagues in Melbourne, Australia, decided to start an indoor soccer team to encourage each other to exercise. Eleven players joined together and enrolled as the PPD team at an indoor fitness center near the Melbourne office.

After 15 weeks of play against teams from other companies, PPD held the top rung of the ladder, which brought them to the corporate team tournament. By winning two final playoff matches, the PPD team earned the division title.

The PPD club plans to play in the Corporate Games, a sports festival for businesses that encourages companies to support their employees to pursue healthier, more active lifestyles. The games provide the opportunity for anyone, regardless of ability, to become active in a sport.

This soccer initiative brought together PPD staff to build relationships and have fun while maintaining a work-life balance.
