It was another company event to remember as GPI employees together with their family and guests, headed to the historical Intramuros last December 17, 2015, all dressed in white to attend GPI’s White Holiday Party. This year’s venue was the penthouse restaurant 9 Spoons at The Bayleaf Hotel with the panoramic view of the Manila skyline and the Intramuros Golf Course providing the perfect backdrop for the occasion.
As part of the company’s tradition, the program started with songs of praise and worship led by the Christ’s Commission Fellowship (CCF) Cambridge Ministry, while Mr. Marty Ocaya, also from CCF, delivered God’s message of hope and love. The employees’ group and solo performances made the event even more exciting, and showcased GPI’s local talents.
The mood slightly shifted during the night’s heart-warming segment when the spotlight was given to two employees who expressed their deepest gratitude to the Management for providing them financial assistance when they had a surgical procedure.
To acknowledge the employees’ loyalty and exceptional performance and contribution to GPI’s growth, special recognitions were given to Arch. Christian Oliver Rivera, the very first recipient of Employees’ Choice award, Mr. Frederico Ocampo and Mr. Eduardo Cruz, both 5-Year Service Awardees, with the latter also voted as the Employee of the year, and Mr. Allan Delarmente, the Most Promising Technical Personnel.
The night culminated with the awarding of the best employee performance, best dubsmash, male and female stars of the night, and the raffle draw of major prizes. GPI President and Chief Operations Officer Mr. Desmond Pardo, capped the event with his motivational speech and the celebration continued on as the employees and management partied the night away, all prepped up for 2016, with renewed excellence and continued dynamism.
