Once again Palmer celebrated the birth and coming of Jesus Christ with a fantastic Christmas Party last December and the voluntary going to the Sacrament of Penance. As part of the celebration a Christmas Party with a Fairy Tale setting was held at the Lindenwood Suites last December 14. 2018.
Everybody enjoyed which helped them prepare for Christmas very well.
About 100 Employees of Palmer repaired the Dagatan Farm Sxhool last Augusr 25, 2018 in Lipa Ciry Batangas. The Palmer Volunteers cleaned & painted many rooms in the said school which is for poor but deserving students from around the area.
Everybody was Happy & Delighted for having helped many people that day.
Palmer-Asia Incorporated held its annual Sports Fest on April 7, 2018 at La Villas, Binan Laguna. Four teams vying for victory competed at various games including basketball and volleyball. All employees had a great time playing while some cheered and yelled in support to their respective teams. It was indeed a time for celebration as employees were able to take a time off their work and truly have fun with their colleagues.
The Red Team was unbeatable as a champion for the last couple of years so all the members of the team gave 100% of their effort. Yellow team came close to red team but Dannis San Jose got the winning point in playing the Chess tournament so we won the over-all. All the team work paid off. And I think that’s the goal of this sportsfest that all of the teams participating to work, help, and support together as one to bring success and start to form a new level of trust with one another
How can one spread the message of compassion that Jesus came on this earth for?
That is the most important question to ask ourselves while entering into the Christmas Season.
Let us not forget the true meaning of this special occasion. Each year we always have something memorable for the employees to show gratitude and gratefulness.
Here in Palmer-Asia, Inc., we celebrated Christmas at the relaxing Brazilian Heights Club House in Muntinlupa City last December 15 which suits our Hawaiian theme perfectly. We started with an opening prayer, singing of the National Anthem and recitation of our Palmer Credo. Our President and CEO Mr. Angel “Andy” Palmiery briefly discussed Palmer’s achievement for 2017 and reminded everyone of the company’s core values: HARDWORK, INTEGRITY, MERITOCRACY and SOLIDARITY.
The employees were divided into different color groups. blue, red, yellow and green. Each group showcased their talents in singing, dancing and acting. We had games, raffles and gift-giving. And most important of all is the solidarity, love, sharing and generosity of everyone which is the true meaning of Christmas.
The highlights of the event were the lighting of the Advent Wreath, together with the Reading for the Third Week of Advent, awarding of the outstanding employees presented by our COO Mr. Mervin Distor and the heart-warming speech from our President.
We ended the night by singing a Christmas carol hand in hand that shows the abundant love and unity of all employees of our beloved PALMER.
It was absolutely a night of decent fun, delightful and jubilant Christmas Celebration of ONE TEAM, ONE PALMER!
Apart from decorating the Christmas tree, exchanging gifts and wearing new clothes, we must not forget the great lessons taught by the birth of Jesus Christ.
It has been rightly said, united we stand. Don’t live as an individual but live as a company of individuals. So that in any situation, you will not be alone to fight it out. But you will be with a group of people who will support you with courage and integrity.
This is PALMER-ASIA, INC. greeting all of you a BLESSED CHRISTMAS and a FRUITFUL & SAFE NEW YEAR!!!
Goals are defined to be the output of effort; an endpoint of where and what you desire to achieve.
Having a clear set of goals are important to someone who strives to succeed— more so to a company that aims to make its brand known; to consistently gain and grow. These goals, however, may not be possible to achieve alone--after all, “teamwork makes the dream work”.
Last June 10, 2017, Palmer-Asia took a day to remember these goals in line with the value of team building at Shercon Resort, Batangas. It was the first time Palmer-Asia Inc., held an activity like this.
The day was gloomy, although that did not affect the employees’ excitement. Upon reaching the
venue, they ate breakfast together and the facilitators warmly welcomed everyone.
The teams were formed in a random order so that everyone could get a chance to know each other. These were labeled as the colors “red, green, yellow, and blue” teams. Everyone enjoyed the challenges; also rappelling and zip lining too. They may have gotten tired, but their expressions were the opposite. It’s as if they didn’t break a sweat because everyone was overjoyed with the momentous occasion.
"Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. The ability to direct individual accomplishments toward organizational objectives. It is the fuel that allows common people to attain uncommon results."
"Unity is strength . . . when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved."
The day was not only filled with athletics, but the CEO of Palmer-Asia Inc., Mr. Angel Palmiery, had given the employees a motivational talk too. He discussed how the company achieved its goals for the past months and shared his thoughts for the company’s future goals. His talk summarized determination, cooperation, and trust— basic virtues a person should carry that are essential for teamwork.
Team work is critical when it comes to aiming for the same goal. Equal efforts should always be practiced. This was emphasized throughout the day by how they played each game together. With the lack of one person doing his/ her job, they would not be able to accomplish their goal.
As the day ended, Palmer-Asia Inc., felt the need to give thanks for being able to communicate with one another. They were thankful for each other’s’ presence at Shercon Resort. It surely was a memorable day for everyone
