Glory

Last Sunday, I was felicitated for completion of five years of service! Never thought I would last that long anywhere. All my previous jobs were just short of a year each.

I sang the invocation song- Maithreem Bhajatha.

The video on a day at work ( a fun perspective to employees' families) which was my brainchild, was received very well.

This week holds a lot of travel , followed by more celebration this weekend as well.

Hey Dodger;))))
Completing 5 yrs in one workplace is quite an achievement that you can pat yourself on the back! (but you know what? God has made the human body so wonderfully that one can neither kick himself/herself nor pat themselves on the back) So we need to do you that favour :)))

Well if you look at it this way....in these times of high attrition rates in the IT and ITES sectors to stay put involves several factors:

Either the workplace/environment and the work culture at your place (Symrise?) is very good OR
Your job satisfies you very well OR
The growth opportunities for the future are excellent OR
The pay packet needs a crane to haul it home :))))

Please tell me which of these it is!

This week holds a lot of travel , followed by more celebration this weekend as well.

As a blog-reader and someone who is interested in knowing whats happening in others' lives :))))..........I would need more info on what kind of celebration it is and why is it for? Or maybe you would keep us posted after your celebrations are over;)

Anyways, go ahead and have a blast.

Cheers mate,

PS: If you folks are wondering what is this-----> :)))))
Its supposed to be those hahahs or guffaws or giggles whatever that we so very often insinuate in our conversations just to take out the seriousness in what we speak ;))))

;)))))) <-----that is an extended winky ;)
