The capability of digital technology is immeasurable. Now that we’re still fighting this global health crisis brought by COVID-19, we have mostly relied on the usage of the digital world to feel engaged, connected, and happy.

Last year, the Bank conducted its first virtual program, the Christmas online get- together and awarding ceremony. Due to the restriction of face-to-face gatherings, this unprecedented activity has become the norm when conducting seminars, meetings, ceremonies, and even the Bank’s Staff Assembly.

Last April 1 - May 07, 2021, another first has been achieved: the Bank’s staff assembly, an annual sports and talent fest of CB employees. Since face-to-face gatherings are not allowed in our current situation, team HRMD redesigned a creative way of conducting such an event. All thanks to the digital world for enabling the employees to showcase their inner talents and skills virtually.

With this year’s theme: Triumphing every Adversity with Mindfulness (TEAM), the TDRU team along with the PAU, have crafted five (5) different activities that each team should accomplish, to wit: Cheery-Up, TEAM Bang, TECH-nik, DU-KNOWng , KANTAra-tara, and GALAW-an.

The Internal Audit Department was hailed the Champion, first runner up was Team Irosin Branch, and 2nd runner up was the Information Technology Department, each receiving cash prizes. Meanwhile, winners of the different activities received tokens as their prize.

This activity has proven that despite the restrictions, we could be as creative as possible without compromising the health and safety of everyone. Sometimes, these trying times push us to be ingenious in the way we do things.

Amidst the distance. The virtual awarding ceremony of the CB Staff Assembly conducted on May 07, 2021. Spearheaded by the HRMD, this redesigned form of assembly was another achievement unlocked in the new normal environment.
