The Commissioner of Police played the first over of the tournament which soaked the teams in cricket fever
Gurugram: In an endeavor to promote the spirit of camaraderie and common purpose amongst employees, Eastman Auto and Power Limited (EAPL), one of the leading companies in energy storage and solar solutions today launched a unique cricket tournament on the lines of the much-celebrated IPL series. It will be called EPL – Eastman Premier League. This glorious event comprising 8 teams was attended and inaugurated by Mr. Sandeep Khirwar, Commissioner of Police, Gurugram. He played the first over of the tournament and kick-started the tournament.
The tournament comprising 15 matches will take place across the month of June 2018 at Sports Maidan, Sector 58, Gurugram.
On the occasion, Mr. Sandeep Khirwar, Commissioner of Police, Gurugram, said, “This is a unique and a noble initiative that will encourage team-building among employees and also drive work-life balance. Cricket as a sport also promotes discipline among players”
The names of 8 teams have been conceptualized after the names of the company’s popular products. Group A comprises RayBar Riders, Solar Charge Controllers, TTC Mavericks, T-Gel Champions and Group B includes Grid Tie Solar Risers, Hybrid Sunrisers, MPPT Supernovas and On-Grid Strikers.
“We, at Eastman Auto and Power Limited, have always strived to provide a perfect work-life balance to all our employees. Cricket is a popular sport and religion in India that cuts across age, gender, and any other demographic construct. This is a unique employee engagement initiative that will thoroughly rejuvenate employees and develop strong bonds amongst them, make them understand the power of team efforts, and strategy,” said Mr. Saurabh Srivastava, President – Marketing & Product Strategy, Eastman Auto and Power Limited.
Meanwhile, employees have welcomed the initiative.
“The initiative is a testimony to the company’s commitment to providing novel experiences of life beyond work. Cricket is my passion and I look forward to leading my team in the tournament,” said Prashant Pillai, Captain of Grid Tie Solar Risers, an employee of Eastman Auto and Power Limited.
This is one of the many recent initiatives that EAPL has taken in this space. Last month it had announced a unique ESOP policy for employees where employees get a chance to co-create growth and value for the organization and themselves. It makes them partners in the quest to achieve professional excellence.
Another unique initiative where Eastman decided to give back to the community was the idea of Solarizing far-flung government schools in India which are mostly off the grid and get very scanty electricity supply. Called the ‘Yellow Umbrella Campaign’ in its first year the aim is to solarize 100 such schools
