2024 Summer Outing

It’s that time of the year again when the summer heat breathes a little too close to our liking and all that we want to do is lay back and pause for a moment to chill — good thing that Phitopolis always has its sights on promoting employee well-being and fostering a positive work-life balance.

This year, Phitopolis had a summer outing in Villa Paa-Iya Farm Resort in San Miguel, Bulacan for a much-deserved break from office activities. This provided us with an opportunity to unwind, recharge, and connect with colleagues in a peaceful setting away from the city bustle and office hustle.

With Phitopolis North thrown into the mix, the team-building activities were as exciting as ever. Employees — graduate trainees and interns included — engaged in games such as bottle flip-tic tac toe, water pong, and passing the water balloon, where everyone ended up soaked and laughing. While games were being held, our volunteer employees prepared the food, sharing stories while grilling skewers, flipping burgers, and arranging refreshing fruit cuts for everyone to enjoy. Everyone had a blast catching up with each other over lunch, while listening to upbeat music with tropical vibes from Phitropicalis, our very own Summer Playlist.

After the flurry of activity, some enjoyed a dip in the swimming pool, while some checked out the small park and other facilities of the resort — groups played a game of pool, and others had a casual match of basketball. A truly freeing, downtime-type of a Saturday for all of us.

Once again, we were able to see how Phitopolis recognizes the importance of cultivating a positive workplace culture where each employee can thrive not only professionally but also personally. Through these events, the company shows its commitment to investing in employee camaraderie, making sure we all still feel as one even as the company grows bigger. We definitely had a good time there! Now, where to next?
