New to Running? Try This

Running helps people maintain good physical and mental health in countless ways. Some people though believe that running is not for them.

Apart from a healthy habit, running can actually be a fun activity and believe it or not, it can become ”addictive”.

If you are not the kind of person that enjoys solitariness, you can still run with a friend or you can even join a running club.

Some of the benefits of running with others are,according to LiveStrong, the below.

  • When running with others the time flies. Your focus isn’t on your watch because you are immersed in conversations.
  • When nobody is waiting for you to show up, it’s easy to talk yourself out of a run. But when another person is waiting for you it’s easier to commit to regular exercise.
  • Running with more experienced teammates is an excellent way to expand your running wisdom and optimise your running strategy.
  • Thanks to our human innate competitiveness, when you run with others you push yourself harder.
  • If you are sociable and you enjoy meeting new people, joining a running club is definitely a good idea.
  • Finally, you will discover of what you are cable of. Pushing yourself to the limits, mentally and physically, is the best way to increase self satisfaction and self esteem.

We Got Treats From Japan!

Every now and then Polarity Technologies‘s team travels to other parts of the world.

We love travelling to foreign countries, especially to destinations with significantly different cultures from our. We even choose to extend our trips sometimes, in order to have the time to explore a bit more the area or nearby countries.

In an effort to share our experience with the rest of the team, we usually bring little souvenirs and local treats upon our return.

Alexandros Savvides, Polarity Technologies Ltd‘s Director of Accounting & Operations, has recently travelled to China for business and extended his stay, so he could visit Japan.

This was his first time in Japan, and based on his feedback his trip was an amazing experience. Given that Japan has a long history and a big reputation on desserts and treats, Alexandros couldn’t return to the office with empty hands.

He brought us some very interesting Japanese treats such us KitKat Wasabi &  KitKat Sake. He even brought us some … not-so-common snacks such us Shredded Dried Squid and Dry Cod with Sesame! Although we’ ve heard and read a lot about Japan, we’ve never been there. So this was a good chance for us to get a…taste!

The flexibility and freedom of our corporate culture, is something that we really love. It allow us more room and time to expand our horizons, live new experiences and grow.

Polarity Technologies’ board of directors and senior management had an unforgettable night in Beijing last week.

As you might have already read in a previous post of our blog, Polarity Technologies got invited to its mother company’s (Genimous Investment) New Year Party, in China.

On Saturday afternoon a driver picked them up from The Westin Beijing Financial District, where they were staying, and drove them to the party venue.

As soon as they arrived, a pleasant surprise was waiting for them. A full crew was there to help them get ready for a truly memorable photoshoot.

Specifically, they helped them put on traditional Chinese costumes and accessories, and a Chinese makeup artist did their makeup!!

The end result was phenomenal; something that none of them has experienced before. The professional photographer, took some unique photos of them, using different kind of backdrops.

At the end of the photoshoot, the guests were escorted to the room where the event would take place. The set-up was impressive and every single detail was taken care of. The event started with traditional music and dances from China and other parts of the world. Right before the dinner, the directors and senior management of Genimous Investment’s subsidiaries, including Polarity’s, were awarded for their excellent contribution.

The night was very well organised and everyone had an amazing time.

The evening ended with traditional Chinese dinner and drinks.

Why Global Companies Pick Cyprus

”The number and range of companies choosing to locate their regional or global headquarters in Cyprus have risen steadily in recent years. The trend is set to continue because of growing demands from global regulators that companies have a physical presence and substance in the country where they are registered – and both are easily established in Cyprus.”, Cyprus Mail says.

Location, Operational Costs, Growing Economy, Favourable Tax Regime, Multilingualism and Low-Crime Rate are only some of the reasons why international companies choose Cyprus.

Some examples of global companies that have chosen to locate/move their headquarters here are :

Our ”Work Hard, Play Hard” mentality, is part of our culture and we couldn’t be more happy about it.
