August 10, 2017 marks the anniversary of the establishment of Fligno Philippines in Cagayan de Oro City. A simple kickoff ceremony and meeting was held at the Marco Hotel in Alwana Compound, Cugman.
Fligno is as an outstanding custom software development company that was founded on the Gold Coast in Queensland, Australia. For its expansion in the Philippines, Fligno partnered with a small IT BPO company based in Cagayan De Oro City.
With everyone sporting their Fligno shirts, the meeting commenced with opening remarks by the company president, Mr. Rafael Bergola. He discussed the vision and core values of Fligno Philippines, basically, the company aiming to provide quality and cost-effective software development services, website design and development services, digital marketing services, and website maintenance and support to clients across the region of Australasia. He also talked about future plans and goals set for the company.
Mr. Bergola also disclosed that the company will eventually provide a new and fully-furnished office in Cagayan de Oro City for a fun and comfortable working environment for all everyone. He also stressed that, hopefully, Fligno could help the employees grow professionally by providing or attending local or national training and seminars.
After this, dinner was served.
After dinner, for an icebreaker, the game of Charades was played. Three groups formed up as three teams, each team having 6 members. To amp up the game, cash prizes were announced. The winning team got to go home with a P2,000 prize. The second prize was P1,000, while the third-place team got P500.
It was a night filled with laughter and friendship as employees and top management got to fraternize even after the meeting. Everyone went home with a smile and the thought of being part of a new family, Fligno Philippines, and the chance to work hard and make a difference, professionally.
Two years later, most of those from the original founding group are still with Fligno Philippines. From its original three-room office in Carmen, the company transferred to a bigger 3-floor office in Divisoria. And from the original founding group of around 25 employees, there are now almost a hundred, proving that Fligno Philippines custom software development company is on the road to professional growth and expansion.
