Speaking about the initiative, Mr TV Narendran, MD, Tata Steel, India and SEA said, 'When I first heard about this programme, what really caught my attention is that it's for everyone and not only the athletes. This initiative is all about making a new beginning and developing good habit. I have heard specific stories of Tata Steel employees whose lifestyle has changed because of this programme. We at Tata Steel take pride in the fact that we care for our employees and that reflects in our concern for safety and health. Stepathlon is a great way of engaging with the employees as this not only creates a competitive enviorment but also motivates them to take interest in their health.'
