A Year-Ender With A Bang: SYKES ends 2017 with an All-Star Celebration

With more than P4 million worth of prizes up for grabs, an all-star performance from legendary rock icons Ely Buendia and Bamboo, and a Hollywood glam-themed event – there’s no denying that SYKES’ grand year-end celebration titled “LIMELIGHT: SYKES YEC 2017” is one of the best company celebrations in town.


SYKES transformed the SMX Convention Center into a dazzling venue full of stars where more than 6,000 of its employees wore Hollywood-inspired outfits. The entire program was energetic and entertaining, thanks to the antics and witty banter delivered by two of today’s hottest and most in-demand DJs– Sam YG and Joyce Pring.

Without a doubt, SYKES’ year-end celebration is all about giving back to the company’s most important people, its employees, who continue to elevate the company to new heights.

And as a way to give back, SYKES recognized its employees who have been with them for a long time through its SYKES Service Awards, honoring its employees who have been at SYKES for 10, 15 and 20 years.

“Tonight is a celebration of passion and dedication that our employees have shown us this year. They are truly the stars that make SYKES shine brighter and for that, we thank them very much,” said Mike Henderson, Senior Vice President of Regional Operations, APAC.

The SYKES superstars also had their share of spotlight on the stage as they showcased their talents in performing as three group battled it all out on the dance floor aiming for the title of Grand Champion in the employee competition.

Meanwhile, as part of its advocacy in promoting a well-balanced life to its employees, SYKES has awarded the employee organization called SYKES Outdoor Club as the SYKES Choices Club for 2017, recognizing the organization’s projects and campaigns that help people, one caring interaction at a time.
