For this year, the venue chosen was Matabungkay Beach Resort and Hotel, located in the serene and lush municipality of Lian, Batangas, Philippines. The event took place on 24-25 May 2019 with the theme: One Team. One Goal. One Summer Story. One Better ERNI.
May 24 – The first day of the event focused more on physical team building activities aimed at building each team’s camaraderie, trust, patience and problem-solving skills. Despite all the challenges, heavy sweating and muscle aches, each member tried to stand tall, stoically doing their best to help their team win. At the end of the day, the Light Blue Team emerged victorious. They were followed by the Blue Team, Grey Team and Red Team. Kudos to everyone for putting forth their best efforts and for their winning camaraderie and sportsmanship during the game!
After awarding the winners, everyone enjoyed their free time in the pool and on the beach watching the mesmerising sunset. Dinnertime came, followed by a night of music and socialisation.
May 25 – The last day of the event was a rather easy-going day. Tired bodies from the last day’s activities were rested while the participants enjoyed a short Self-Awareness in the Workplace workshop conducted by the HR Department. This is in line with the promotion of positive Mental Health in the company.
It is indeed one great summer story of a team having one goal to always be One Better ERNI.
