Provar is about more than just the best Salesforce testing solutions on the market – we excel in company culture, too! Provar recently wrapped up its “Movember” step challenge in the spirit of camaraderie and well-being, an internal initiative to foster a culture of wellness and team spirit within the organization. Hosted on the Pacer fitness app, this competition saw Provar employees from across the globe step up to the challenge, quite literally, with impressive enthusiasm and dedication.
“Our Culture Club started this challenge because we want to infuse health and wellness into our culture. We felt the Pacer App identified with the culture we have at Provar. It centers around fostering a sense of communal engagement and prioritizing individual well-being. The objective is to encourage everyone to partake in the collective pursuit of a healthier lifestyle, recognizing that the intrinsic value lies in the act of participation.”– Solomon Johnson, People Partner, Provar
