"We made it this far, so there's no stopping us now." So, from that single step taken in August 2017, a year has gone by for all those innovative minds that started Fligno custom software development company to pursue that single goal to grow and expand the company.
No company can boast of starting then growing overnight, and Fligno Software Philippines, Inc. is no exception, requiring an enormous amount of time to build, amazing quality of effort to start, and an incalculable amount of energy to maintain. Fligno did its best with what it little it had at the start, and slowly built up trust with clients and developed compassion towards its employees in order to grow the company to what it is now.
And now that a year has flown past, but what a year it has been. All that hard work that everyone has put in eventually paid off, and it benefits everyone. All that hard work has fueled the growth of the company. Thus, in honour of all this hard work after a year, the company held its 1st Fligno Anniversary Celebration at the Apple Tree Resort in Opol, Misamis Oriental.
The anniversary celebration started at around 2:30 P.M., with Jossel Tala-o and Persy Ga acting as host and emcee. After the opening prayer, a welcome address was given by the company's Project Manager, Jan Martinez.
To start the spices rolling and to show off the event’s Hawaiian Theme, a "Tiny Bubbles" dance was performed by the NMG Girls: Joy, Jossel, Dorren, Jennelyn, and Mia, with the “special” participation of Persy.
After the Hawaiian dance number, hilarious games to boost the energy and laughter of Fligno employees were held. The games certainly brought a lot of guffaws from the top management. See pictures below:
After the fun games, appreciation for the Employees of the Month for April and May were given to:
Curt Lowell (April)
Jundyl Tanawan (May)
Naturally, the event would never be complete without a message from Mr. Felix Chua, Fligno Chairman. Since he could not be physically at the event, instead he gave a warm message through a video call and congratulated everyone for a job well done.
Afterwards, Fligno’s Research and Development Department presented an amazing band performance.
A heartfelt message of appreciation and assurance was then given by the (somewhat emotional) Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Rafael Bergola. He highlighted how they started Fligno, and how much gratitude he feels for the employees and staff who gave all their best to help the company move forward.
The Employees of the Month for June were also awarded:
Mitchel Mea Arjona (June)
Mertony Sarceda (June)
Again, another set of funny games was conducted with amazing (and funny) results.
Dinner was then served and everyone dug in heartily, hungry after so much physical movement and laughter. Following the feast was the awarding ceremony for the games and activities prepared by the Human Resources Department. The winners were given various prizes and had their pictures taken.
With the talents of our very own camera virtuoso, Coy, a group pictorial was done for each of Fligno’s departments. See them below:
Overall, the event and anniversary celebration exuded the feeling of accomplishment and gave everyone a chance to celebrate all the big and little things that made Fligno Software Philippines, the innovative and competitive company it is now.
