True dedication and passion is what our associates bring to work every day. And that helps us produce the beverage that India loves. The happy faces at our factories and offices are a testimony to the great environment that HCCB and its associates have created.
Our associates chase their dreams and achieve tremendous feats within and outside work, and we take great joy in providing all the necessary support and encouragement. Four of our associates from Khordha factory participated and completed "The Himalayan Adventure Challenge – 2018", a prestigious and one-of-its kind adventure sports in India.
Joydeep Roy (Khordha Factory Manager), Niranjan (Kinley line operator), Shobha (Maintenance Executive) and Ashish (Production TL) represented HCCB in the event which included mountain cycling, white water rafting and trekking (30 km) in a single day format. The event is one of the most sought after multi-discipline adventure races in the country. It also meant participants had to bring their skills, teamwork and abilities to the fore.
The associates were selected through an internal program and followed a disciplined fitness regime for more than three weeks before the event. The selected associates periodically went for warm-up sessions to a nearby hill post their regular duty hours. Additionally, a special drive was held before the event where 30 associates went on a trek.
Shobha shared her experience of going to the Himalayas, staying in a tent and being part of adventure sports. She said, "It was a thrilling experience! A complete break from not-so-boring life."
The event was not just an adventure challenge but also gave the participants great life lessons to think about. "You can't succeed unless you try something new", said Ashish. "Live with pain, there is no external power that resurrects you. It's all inside us", is what Niranjan had to say.
At HCCB, we truly believe in chasing our dreams and passion!
