There’s no denying that when Christmas is around the corner, it moves us, whatever our situation may be. Considering the current situation around Covid, Eastvantage (EV) themed its holiday party held on December 10, 2021 around present-day reality.
Dubbed “ChristMASKquerade”, the event allowed the associates to gather in a fun, joyous atmosphere while following health protocols. Attendees, both virtual and on site, were enjoined to wear self-designed face masks in keeping with the party’s theme.
The occasion turned out to be a grand showcase of the talent and creativity of EV associates, not only did hundreds show up in whimsical face mask creations, but different teams also shared their talent in music, dance, and drama through videos submitted for the EV’s Got Talent contest.
Ten associates with the best, most creative face masks reflected the smiles that have been hidden behind the mandatory covering, and the three best and most entertaining team talent presentations were awarded with special prizes. The first eight employees who participated in Paint the Town Red, a scavenger hunt encouraging employees to discover their own hometowns, also won eGCs.
As EV understands that being cooped up at home for over a year can be unhealthy for most, relaxation and wellness packages were raffled off to help alleviate the boredom and anxiety of a life lived indoors. Moreover, EV raffled off a whopping PHP 75k worth of electronics eGCs to three winners of the Tech 4 Tech promotion, for successfully referring to the Tech openings under different accounts.
ChristMASKquerade also served as EV’s show of appreciation to its team members for their valuable operational contributions during the year. Top performers were also recognized and given awards during the affair, with special awards going to those who showed exemplary leadership and commitment for 2021.
The hybrid affair, attended by over 240 people virtually with over 70 of these in-person, saw EV employees celebrating a much-loved occasion, physically together for the first time in almost two years. All in-office attendees are vaccinated and followed safety protocols, and were treated to a pizza and hotdog feast at the end of the program.
