How the Callbox Team Spends the Holiday Season [INFOGRAPHIC]

 

Parties

This year’s company party is a fitting conclusion to an amazing 2017. But the year-end party goes beyond celebrating business successes. It’s about showcasing the Callbox culture and identity.

We always plan the party around maximizing team interaction. We’re a relatively big family, so this is one way of helping everyone get to know everybody else.

Charity

Charity has always been a part of Callbox’s holiday tradition. In fact, giving back to the community forms part of our calendar the whole year round.

Each year, we carry out feeding programs, help deliver relief goods, and conduct after-school learning projects. The holidays simply wouldn’t be complete without donations and volunteer work from the team.

Gift-Giving

Callbox is a family of generous gift givers. When the holidays roll around, everyone’s busy making their list and checking it twice (and sometimes even thrice).

The Callbox team has its own take on the Secret Santa tradition. Everybody gets little presents from their Secret Santas weeks before the actual gift exchange.

Contests

Nobody at Callbox shies away from a contest. That drive to compete and win makes Callbox the company it is today. It also makes the holidays really exciting.

Each December, different departments go head to head, showing off their skills in activities such as Christmas tree-decorating and choral singing.

Awards

Being part of the Callbox team means your performance doesn’t go unnoticed or unrewarded. December is the time for recognizing the great work that everybody’s been doing for the past 12 months.

We make the holidays even brighter by letting the Callbox team’s stars shine through awards and prizes.

Lookback/Look-Ahead

For most companies, the run-up to the end of the year is when annual reviews and planning kick into high gear. At Callbox, we turn these activities into a holiday staple.

We take a collaborative approach at planning and review. This means that we sit down as a team and work out where we’ve been and where we’re going.

Callbox Cares: Feeding and Relief Operation for Fire Victims in San Juan Molo

Callbox Cares- Feeding and Relief Operation for Fire Victims in San Juan Molo_DONE

The 18-classroom school in Brgy. San Juan Molo is supposed to be holding regular classes for elementary children from 7:30 am to 4:30 pm, but had to cut down school hours into half, as the educational facility was converted into a temporary shelter for some displaced families who were victims of a recent fire incident in the area.

The month of March is observed as Fire Prevention month in the Philippines. Prevention and safety tips are widely disseminated for public awareness by different concerned government and private sectors through the media. However, each year, some hundreds of fire incidents are reported even before the hottest month sets in.

Unattended lighted candles, octopus electrical outlets, and unplugged or overheated electrical appliances are among the many causes of sudden blazes – dreaded, but sad to say, an anticipated occurrence.

And on the mid-morning of the 7th of March this year, the family victims in Brgy San Juan Molo became the helpless added fraction to the rising fire incident statistics.

As soon as Callbox learned of the incident, quick action was taken to drive donations to extend assistance to the fire victims. Benevolence reigned, as Callbox staff gave used clothing, canned goods and cash to buy groceries like instant noodles, rice, milk and toiletries for the affected families. A packed meal of fried chicken, bihon noodles and steamed rice was likewise prepared by the Callbox kitchen staff to be served to the fire victims.

The Callbox team drove to Brgy San Juan Molo at 10:30 am on March 11, 2016, in two SUVs loaded with packed lunches, and bags of clothing and groceries.

The San Juan barangay officials assisted in unloading the packages and led the Callboxers to the relocation area, where they were met by smiling faces of mostly women, mothers who had their half-naked little children tagging along or breastfeeding their babies even as they looked upon the arrival of the Callbox team.

The place was packed with people who used to be just neighbors, but the tragic fire now contain them as roommates – sharing a classroom floor to sleep in and a bathroom to cleanse themselves or wash dirtied clothes – enduring inconvenience while patiently waiting for better options to come soon.

As lunch was served, the team took the time to chat with Brgy Captain Juanito who confirmed that a faulty electrical wiring caused the sudden fire, resulting to 270 individuals left homeless, of which 13 were wounded, and leaving 10 houses totally damaged. He said that they are grateful to organizations such as Callbox who extend help to their people. 

Flor, a mother seated on an armchair in one of the classrooms, while cuddling her 2-year old daughter, grasped the arm of one of the Callboxers and with teary-eyes said that her family is thankful to people who selflessly share time and kindness to them; providing them even just one meal for a day, eases the burden of the distressful reality they could hardly cope with

– a lost home, shattered self-identity, and ashen memories.

After lunch, “Thank you Callbox” echoed in the four corners of the school as heads of each family lined up to receive a package of clothing and groceries.

For Callbox, more than helping the calamity-stricken victims tide over hunger for a day, the feeding and relief operation meant to help them feel that they, too, are recognized as part of the community and are important.

It’s a continued commitment to fulfill a moral obligation to share and a spiritual aspiration to care.
