True to its theme, this year’s general assembly was conducted to promote camaraderie among employees and give due recognition to those who have “survived” and succeeded in achieving their respective targets in the year 2015, as well as those who really went out of their way to perform their job well and to serve the communities where they belong to.

It was a one-day event, with two major programs, that is, the games and the awards ceremony.


During the games, all employees were divided into five (5) teams – Green Python (Exec, Credit, PBU, BBD, Legal), Black Panther (HR, GSAD, Risk, Compliance, Microfinance, I.T., Audit, Accounting, Comptroller), Red Fox (Cluster 1), Blue Shark (Cluster 2) and White Tiger (Cluster 3) –  who contended in three (3) games, namely, treasure hunt, reversed water relay and “body sponge,” a game wherein members of the group have to get water from the sea using only their clothes and body in order to fill a pail or bucket and win.  After the games, it was the Black Panther who emerged victorious.
