After a year of hard work, it’s time to let our hair down and party. HCK Group went all out to make the annual year-end bash on the evening of Dec 16 a memorable one.
The ground floor of Wisma HCK was decked with glittering party and Christmas decorations for the occasion. The reception area was temporarily transformed to house a long table filled with mouth-watering dishes like salad, seafood lasagna, beef stew, roast lamb and chicken. The real star of the buffet spread, however, had a table all to itself at a corner: the roast turkey. The dessert table had cups of panna cotta and other delectable treats awaiting those with a sweet tooth.
Before the sumptuous feast, HCK Group executive chairman Tan Sri Clement Hii was invited on stage to say a few words. In his speech, he thanked the staff for their hard work and also spurred them to achieve more in the next year in spite of the slowing economy. He added that although some companies saw this as a time to slow down, he saw this as an opportunity to do more and stay ahead of the competition.
More than a hundred staff from the Corporate, Property, Marketing and Sales, Admin and HR, Media, IT and other divisions were seen having a great time mingling and eating. The emcee and live band also brought more merriment to the party.
After the delicious meal, staff members were then entertained with some party games, followed by the Secret Santa gift exchange and a lucky draw. Generous sponsors gave away fantastic prizes for the party games and lucky draw, such as electrical appliances and food vouchers. Among the lucky draw winners were Focus Malaysia senior writer Behonce Beh, who won a refrigerator, and HCK Group receptionist Mohd Fadhul Malek Fuad, who won the grand prize of a 49-inch LED television.
Senior manager (HR, purchasing and facilities) Eileen Liew, who led the organising committee, said they started party preparations a month before the bash, making arrangements with caterers, sponsors and vendors. Kudos to the team for their hard work. With the party closing 2016 on a high, here’s to hoping that HCK Group soars to greater heights in 2017.
