This year, more than one hundred Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton employees and partners from the Québec–Chaudière-Appalaches, Mauricie and Nicolet regions moved, ran and walked during the Trois-Rivières (June 7) and Québec City (June 12) Défi Entreprises challenges. The purpose of these events is to promote physical activity, improve employees’ quality of life and enhance their business performance.
Last year, 57 people took the challenge in Québec City. This year, the organizing committee aimed for 70 participants. “I’m proud to announce that many employees took part this year. Not only did we surpass our objective, but we had almost double the number of people registered compared to last year!” said Mario Morin, Regional Vice-President of Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton, who also took part in the challenge.
“The Défi Entreprises challenge fits in perfectly with Raymond Chabot Grant Thornton’s business culture: commitment, effort, team spirit and the push to exceed one’s limits. We’re very pleased with our employees’ positive response and the enthusiasm with which the Québec–Chaudière-Appalaches, Mauricie and Nicolet regions’ team took up the Défi Entreprises challenges on June 7th and 12th,” said Morin.
