HCLs Martyna and Dorota take part in Poland Business Run

HCL's Martyna and Dorota take part in Poland Business Run

 August 19, 2021

HCL Technologies (HCL) is a silver sponsor of the Poland Business Run that aims to help people with musculoskeletal disabilities through eliminating social barriers, as well as helping people at risk of amputation.

HCL ideapreneurs Dorota Skrzynecka [pictured above]  and Martyna Grzanka share their fond memories from their past involvement with the event.


Making a positive impact

For Dorota, Infra/Track Lead at HCL, running is a moment of respite, relaxation and pleasure. Eight years ago, a friend told her about a foundation that organizes the run and also helps people after amputation.

"The atmosphere was so amazing that since then, this event has found a special place on my calendar," she says. 

"The possibility of running combined with great fun and the possibility of helping is a mixture that cannot be ignored. I run because I like it, I help because I like...And I encourage others to do so."

Enjoying the feeling of teamwork 

Martyna [pictured above] is Technical Lead for Poland at HCL  and has done the run since 2014. She reflects on how the event reminds her of the work she does at HCL.

"The most important thing in our work is teamwork," she explains. "We create team results together, we work towards common goals together we are happy together when our team is successful and we are sad together when it is not. Just like on a business run –  someone is waiting to pick up the baton, in the office you are always sure that someone will be waiting to deal with more difficult cases, which you can no longer solve for the customer."

Taking part in this event has encouraged Martyna to make running a weekly activity. Four times a week, she runs 10km, sometimes more. In the week, she runs in the city, but at weekends she goes to her "beloved Jura", a hilly, Jurassic landscape, where she enjoys nature, the forest, and beautiful rocks.
