Multinational contact center SYKES Philippines recently joined the global celebration of the Customer Service Week through a live online concert as its way of showing appreciation to its dedicated employees. Themed “Dream Team,” this year’s event highlights the importance of teamwork in providing outstanding customer service. For SYKES, its Dream Team is the key to a quick and successful transition to the new work arrangements implemented to observe necessary health protocols. CS Week is a celebration every October, created to recognize the valuable contributions of customer service employees across the world.

Like most events, this year’s celebration of CS Week at SYKES has gone fully digital.The BPO industry leader organized exciting virtual activities and promos that catered to both on-site and work-at-home employees of its Manila and Cebu sites.

To better involve SYKESersinthe week-long celebration, the company has strengthened its social media presence to engage more employees. They held the Dream Team photo contest, where the group with the best team photo won a cash prize of Php5,000. SYKES also created its very own Facebook profile frame and Facebook filter, as well as its own Instagram quiz filter, wherein a lucky SYKES who showed off the SYKES Dream Team spirit won a cash prize of Php3,000.

On the last day of the week-long celebration, SYKES held the Dream Team Facebook live event, hosted by VJ Ai dela Cruz, with moving performances by OPM icon EbeDancel and OPM band I Belong to the Zoo.To make it more fun for viewers throughout the stream, the event involved a Watch and Win Promo wherein two winners (one from SYKES Manila and one from SYKES Cebu) each bagged a cash prize of Php 25,000. Employees working on-site also got surprise treats.

“At SYKES, we consider our employees to be the most important asset of the company. We have been celebrating Customer Service Week since 2016, and every year, we level up our festivities as away of honoring the hard work of all our employees.This year, our entire workforce has faced tough challenges due to the current situation, yet was still able to strive for excellence and deliver well through teamwork and dedication to their jobs. I can proudly say that our workforce truly is the Dream Team. Though we had to do it behind our computers, it is a well-deserved and much-needed celebration for our hardworking workforce,” said Cecile May Venancio, Senior Director, Branding & Communications, APAC.
