SYKES Cebu celebrates annual Sinulog Festival this 2019
SYKES, Cebu’s pioneer call center, joins the city’s biggest celebration—the Sinulog Festival on January 13-20.
SYKESers clad in white and blue shirts represented the company in the opening parade on January 11.
Aside from joining the festivities, SYKES also held its own activities to give employees more ways to celebrate Sinulog.
One of the most-anticipated part of the week-long festivities was the search for the first ever SYKES Sinulog Festival Queen where SYKESers showcased their beauty, wit, and talent. Danica Camomot of SSG&A wowed the crowd with her performance and took home the highly coveted crown.
Frank Pasayloon, SYKES Cebu’s Center Director shared his enthusiasm with the crowd as they participate in the SYKES Cebu-wide celebration. “As we strengthen our faith and culture, SYKES Cebu celebrates with the entire Cebuano community.”
SYKES also distributed limited-edition SYKES Sinulog shirts which the employees proudly wore on January 20 for the last leg of the Sinulog festival. The parade attended by more than 6,000,000 people, featured colorful, extravagant floats from different participating groups and companies. Phoebe Elbanbuena, CSCC’s Inter-BPO Ms. E-league Queen 2018, represented SYKES in the grand parade’s IT-BPO float.
To top off the massive celebration, SYKES Cebu’s R2BU Team, grand champions of last year’s SYKES Cebu Year-End Celebration, were invited to perform during the Sinulog Festival’s live broadcast. R2Bu treated the crowd to an energetic dance performance showcasing SYKES and Cebu’s rich history.
The Sinulog Festival is inspired by the dance ritual in honor of the miraculous image of the Sto. Nino, Cebu’s patron saint. The annual festival draws thousands of crowds from all over the world and is one of the grandest events in the country.
