This year’s staff party was held on 26 February 2016 at the Pan Pacific Hotel. This time round, the theme for the event was “Rock and Roll Night”. Many of our staff came dressed to the theme as rock stars from different eras. Even our Managing Director’s wife sportingly dressed for the occasion as a pretty and cool rock star! Prior to the commencement of the dinner, we had pre-activities set up at the foyer for our guests and staff to enjoy. There was an instant photo booth with props, temporary tattoo counter, and light sticks for guests and staff to play with.
Our Managing Director and CEO, Mr Hiroshi Ide, made his speech before dinner commenced with Lou Hei—with everyone joining in unison to wish for luck and prosperity for the new year. Mr Hiroshi Ide then proceeded to present the Excellent Safety Performance Awards for the year 2015 to the following projects— Az-Zour North, Kuwait; GSK Singapore; North Bangkok Combined Cycle Power Plant Project; and Manjung Track 3A and BLNG Cogen II Project.
The top honour, however, went to the BLNG Cogen II Project, which won the “Champion of Champions” title for having the best Health, Safety and Environment (HSE) performance amongst all the JEL work sites in 2015. A live band kept the guests and staff entertained during the dinner with many familiar and catchy rock songs, much to the delight of the audience. In addition, we also had a Karaoke Competition for our staff. Eight finalists showed off their singing and dancing talents on stage.
Eventually, Mr. Taishi Sumida won the judges over with his entertaining and humorous performance. All in all, it was a wonderful night where everyone got to relax, have fun and got to know each other better!
