Sunway celebrated its 38th Family Day with more than 12,500 of its employees and family members from all over Peninsular Malaysia at Sunway Lagoon Surf Beach recently. The full-day event, which was attended by Sunway’s management team as well as its employees from its many business divisions, was themed “Passion Unites,” resonant of Sunway’s recent merger to become one of the largest property-construction corporations in the country.
The launch of Sunway’s Family Day was further enhanced by a muhibah group percussion performance comprising 9 drummers of different cultural and ethnic backgrounds such as Malay, Chinese, Indian and Sikh who gave a rousing rendition of a medley of popular and upbeat tunes! The cultural drummers represented the diversity of the Group’s employees, while their extraordinary presentation represented the power of passion united!
Hosted and organized by the Group’s sports club, Kelab Sukan Sunway, the day’s program also included a lively telematch where staff and their families sportingly participated amidst lots of fun and laughter!
Winners of the recent Sunway Sports Carnival held from June to September were also announced that day. The Red Team emerged as overall winner and was awarded the Tan Sri Jeffrey Cheah Challenge Trophy.
Ms Suraya Hani who brought her family of four was delighted to participate in the festivities organized by Sunway’s sports club. She said that the event was an excellent platform to foster closer ties with her colleagues as well as her family!
“I am proud to be a part of an organization which integrates work-life balance in its management. We spend one third of our daily lives at work, and it is activities such as these that bring families and colleagues together. This also enables us to understand each other better for a more productive life at work and at home,” said Geetha, another employee who brought her mother and brother to the family day.
Datuk Razman M. Hashim, Deputy Chairman of Sunway Group who launched the Family Day, said that the event was themed Passion Unites as it was the first gathering after the milestone merger which the Group had undergone earlier this year.
“This year’s Sunway Family Day is especially significant for us as it was our first gathering as one family under the Sunway Berhad banner. As a large conglomerate, we hail from different backgrounds, both culturally and professionally – but there is one value that unites us all – a deep passion for excellence. At Sunway Berhad, this passion has brought us to new heights and I truly believe that passion will bring us further in our journey to build communities together,” he said.
