A sound mind in a sound body. At Xpand IT, we follow that rule and want our staff to follow it too. A study conducted by two MIT researchers for the scientific magazine Nature Communications concluded that exercising is “socially contagious”. That’s why we promote several activities that are able to stimulate equally both the physical and mental health of all participants. From after-work gatherings to CrossFit classes, there’s a range of activities for everyone. Regardless of the activity, what matters most in the end is spending time together, bonding between teams. That is Xpand IT’s DNA spirit.
