CEO Welcome Back Party

CEO Welcome Back Party | Call Center Philippines | TYF, Inc.
In the presence of burgers and beer, there’s no way last Saturday’s soiree can go wrong. In fact, even the weather was in favor of celebrating the Founder’s return to his rightful place as not a drop fell from the sky. With our very own CEO, Brad Paul Norman, working as both DJ and cook, everyone loosened up, forgot the troubles of the week, and gave in to the fun atmosphere generated by good food and alcohol, great company, hilarious activities, and swanky prizes.
The usual lunch area, which in TYF lingo we call the White House, was transformed into a rustic barbecue place—the stuff you see in many western movies. It was complete with torches, warm yellow lights, and a tent (which was lovingly sewn by the dashing men from the Business Development team) that covered the entire basketball place.
With the sun setting, guests started to arrive. Some came by themselves or in pairs, while others arrived with their teammates. With the pretty ladies from Recruitment acting as facilitators, they found a cozy spot, and started to build up an appetite as they can smell and see the patties grilling away in the background.
While everyone was enjoying their meal, the emcees, Yman and Geoffrey, started to talk about their experience within TYF’s walls. They were joined by other employees, especially the ones who’ve been with us for so long that their ID numbers are still in double digits. One of them, the Marketing Manager, described the CEO as, “A special boss who is also like a father to me.” A heartwarming video message followed afterwards, showcasing more people who want to express their gratitude and appreciation to the man behind this great Cebu call center.
Special recognition was also given to men and women who delivered valuable service for Taking You Forward. This consists of people who participated in the recently concluded 2014 CSR event and the top performers from each campaign. Kudos guys! Different kinds of entertainment were provided to keep the mood upbeat. Games like Blow Job (a game which requires you to use your mouth to get the calamansi hidden inside a basin full of flour), beer drinking contest, and paper dance were just a few of these activities. One of the night’s highlights, the TYF Idol, showcased agents-turned-singers who battled it out for the chance to win a brand new tablet.
This contest of talent and was owned by Desiree Manguilimotan who sang and danced to the beat of Whitney Houston’s I Want to Dance With Somebody. And did we mention that she also won another tab in the raffle drawing? What are the odds? Her stars must be aligned that night!

And while all these were happening, one can’t help notice a cameraman going all over the place. The event was actually covered by Sky Cable and will be shown in one of their segments. They went around capturing moments and talking to random guests. If you were captured by the camera, there is a good chance you’ll be in television soon! Everyone will be kept posted about this.

Unfortunately, like all good things, the happy hour has to end. And the merry gathering was concluded in a very high note with a raffle drawing. Cool prizes like gift certificates, speakers, smartphones, and tablets were up for grabs. Game winners were awarded. Special prizes were also given away to the Best in Attire, an award given to the most dashing person in western garb. This went to Emman Arca (female category) and Michael Vallescas (male category).

We will not end this article without mentioning Michelle Ferolin, the one responsible for making all this happen, and her team of volunteers who helped in the food and beverages, set up, games, awards, etc. Everyone’s effort definitely paid off as the party was such a success. Thank you guys! It’s because of people like you that make Taking You Forward one of the best BPO companies to work in.
