HSBC participates in sports day activities


DOHA HSBC joined the National Sports Day activities recently with participation in the Qatar Central Bank threekilometre run on the Corniche.

Its runners took winning places with Jody Sanderson, head of global banking as the winner in the men (aged 31 – 45) category. Katherine Watson took second place in the women’s category (aged 18 – 30) while Omaima Sulaiman was fifth in the women’s (46+) category.

Supporters from HSBC visibly cheered their colleagues who participated in the race.

The Qatar National Sport Day is underwriting the aspiration of the Qatar National Vision to invest in human development and create an educated healthy population that will become a capable and motivated workforce. I challenged my colleagues for the race and am proud of the enthusiasm that they have displayed in taking part. This initiative will grow into a major event in Qatar and will most certainly support the idea of a healthy lifestyle and sport awareness in the country,” said Abdul Hakeem Mostafawi, CEO of HSBC in Qatar.

HSBC members of staff built up enthusiasm for the day with an internal sport day. All staff had the opportunity to participate in fun games and were rewarded with prizes for their efforts to attain excellence.

“Engaging our staff in healthy activities outside of the work place is one of the key elements to create a positive working environment.

We are encouraged by the overwhelming involvement of our staff in this event and will build on this for future activities within the bank,” said Issa Ali, senior HR manager.
