SYKES Welcomes New Hires with Holiday Gift Bags

Christmas shopping. Delicious Food. Time with the family. Celebration. Gifts.

These are just some of the many things that are associated with the holidays. For Filipinos, Christmas season is a four-month period that’s all about festivity and celebration. They love to go out of their way to bear gifts and give small tokens to show their love and appreciation. The holiday season in the Philippines is, indeed, the most wonderful time of the year.

This season, SYKES continues its gift-giving tradition of welcoming all new employees with a holiday gift bag.

“This is the third year that we’re giving away SYKES Holiday Gift Bags to all new hires. This is also our way of celebrating their new beginning in the company. It has always been a delight to share the holiday cheer with the people who are now a part of our growing family,” shares Jorene Chingcuangco, HR-Sourcing Manager.

The holiday bags are distributed during the New Employee Orientation (NEO). It includes treats and food items for the new hires and their families.
Although this is an on-going promo for applicants, many of them were still surprised to receive a gift on their first day.

“I didn’t know that there was a gift bag. I appreciate it and I’m so happy that I could bring something back to my kids at home from my New Employee Orientation,” says Cielo, one of the recipients of the gift bag and a mother of two.

“I wasn’t expecting anything as it’s not a common practice for companies so this was a nice surprise. This just made me happier to be a part of a company that knows how to make their employees feel appreciated. I am more than excited to begin my work here at SYKES,” shares Joana, a seasoned agent and one of the new employees who attended the orientation.

New hires from November to December 2016 will receive a special Holiday Gift Bag from SYKES. They can also invite their friends to apply for any job openings at SYKES for a chance to win a brand new car. Aside from the gift bags and the referral promo, they will also experience the much-awaited SYKES Year-End Celebration on December 11 at SMX Convention Center, together with the rest of the SYKES community.
