It was ‘game on’ at the firmus energy HQ earlier this month when Ormeau Table Tennis Club came to the office to share their knowledge on the fast paced sport. firmus energy invested in a ‘breakout area’ for staff in 2017 and the table tennis table has become a staple in the room for all staff members.
Ormeau Table Tennis, which is one of the UK’S fastest growing table tennis club provides quality coaching and guidance for kids and adults – beginner to elite! Gervis, from Ormaeu Table Tennis Club commented;
‘We were delighted when firmus energy got in touch about coming to their offices for a ‘lesson’. Two of our Table Tennis coaches visited their offices in Antrim and spent some time with the staff offering tips and observations on their techniques. It was all good fun and we weren’t too competitive. I was very impressed with firmus energy’s break out area. It’s refreshing to see that companies are encouraging their staff to get up and get active. We are looking forward to building on the relationship we have developed.’
Speaking after the table tennis lesson, Ciaran Brennan said, ‘I really enjoyed seeing how the professionals play! They shared some tips and advice with the staff and we are determined to ‘up our game’ in the coming months. I try and squeeze in a game every other day when I’m in the office. I find it helps me unwind and it’s a welcome break away from the desk.’
firmus energy continues to invest in its workplace health and wellbeing initiative and realises the benefits of having a healthy, happy workforce.
