Professional Communication Club (PCC) has been a good platform for improving communication skills at Deerwalk. This year, Deertalk, a public speaking contest amongst employees, drew great enthusiasm from the participants as well as from the audiences.

Deerwalk has taken this problem as a challenge and initiated the Deerwalk Fitness program to combat it. In addition to nutritious food in the canteen via Deerwalk Foods, regular health check-ups in the Deerwalk Clinic, voluntary hiking every weekend, and several recreational facilities like basketball, table tennis and badminton, it is hoped that the addition of a gymnasium will motivate employees to stay fit.
Deerwalk Table Tennis Tournament 2013 was inaugurated on September 23 with a match between Jeff Rick and Jo Anne Hunt. Jeff Rick won the match but Jo Anne gave him some tough competition.
Deerwalk was established with a handful of employees in 2009 and it currently has more than 150 employees in its Kathmandu office. For the benefit of staff, a subsidized canteen was started in October 2011. During the initial days, employees would line up at the canteen, go through the menu displayed on a board, write their orders down in a register and wait for food to be served. At the end of each month, accounting was done manually for each employee. During the times when the number of employees was not many, there were no issues with this process.
