SYKES kicked off this year’s festivities with an unstoppable sports fest opening ceremony and family day. Last May 28, thousands of SYKESers, together with their kids and loved ones, gathered at Ynares Sports Arena for a fun day of activities and celebration.
SYKES transformed the arena’s open grounds into a bustling activity center. Food trucks, offering a variety of meals, lined up one side of the area while inflatables for kids and adults alike occupy the other side. Employees and their guests are treated to an afternoon of free food and unlimited fun in the giant slide, bungee trampoline, and wall climbing inflatables. It was truly a day dedicated for SYKESers to bond and enjoy with their families.
The family day coincides with the official opening ceremonies of SYKES’ Sportsfest 2017. Dubbed “SYKES Unstoppable”, this year’s sports fest is the first of the many exciting celebrations for the company’s 20th anniversary.
The star-studded event featured celebrity hosts Gretchen Ho, Steven Silva and Kate Alejandrino. The Alliance Guardine Flaggers and the Manoeuvres Ignite joined SYKES’ very own dance crew, SYKES Synergy, for a colorful and energetic opening number. Later in the program, guest performers Zeus Collins and Rodjun Cruz lit the dance floor with their amazing moves.
Other highlights of the program include the Parade of Athletes, the Search for the SYKES Ambassador, the raffle and the kick-off games for Basketball and Volleyball.
