UPV holds Team Building Day 2016
“Christmas is not about asking but about giving,” said Rev. Father Alfone Berbegal, speaker during the UP Visayas Team Building Day on December 20, 2016 at the auditorium of its Iloilo City campus.
Addressing a 400 plus audience made up of administrative staff, Research Extension and Professional Staff, and job hire employees, Fr. Berbegal elaborated three things about Christmas. First, that it is a joyful celebration of the birth of Christ, thus, we must make a conscious effort to think of him in the midst of all the festivities. Second, Christmas points out to God’s plan of salvation which is to reconcile us to him. Third, Christmas should point us to the Lord Jesus and he must therefore influence or change our life.
The Rev. Father is the Parochial Vicar of the Most Holy Name of Jesus Parish in Buenavista, Guimaras.
The Team Building Day grouped the employees into five team with designated colors coming from the University’s various offices and units. It allowed them to get to know their fellow workers through various team games. Hams, cash, gift cards, and other items were raffled off to cap the event.
UPV Chancellor Rommel Espinosa and Vice-Chancellor for Administration Nestor Yunque were present to grace the occasion.
