Bounty Agro Ventures, Inc. (BAVI) chairman Tennyson Chen also graced the event.
In his message that was read at the event, BAVI President Ronald Mascarinas thanked the employees for their “passion in integrating hard work and high purpose that has turned our business into a vehicle for the fulfilment of our highest hopes and dreams as individuals and as corporate body.”
Upcoming Thanksgiving parties will be in Cagayan de Oro (March 6) and in Pasay City (March 20).
BAVI is committed to developing its people and giving them due recognition. The company has been giving employees more and more awards, from just 136 in 2018 to 639 this year.
According to Vice President for Legal, HR, and Corporate Administration Atty. Nedo Sasing, BAVI takes its rewards and recognition program seriously. This has been among the many reasons the company earned the Gold Accreditation from Investors in People last year.
