On the evening of Tuesday, October 24th, 2023, IFAS Group embraced the holiday spirit with its annual Christmas Staff Party at the Grosvenor Hotel in Balaclava. You might be wondering, “Why so early?” Well, IFAS Group likes to get a head start on the festivities, especially with the whirlwind of year-end work commitments and the hustle and bustle of holiday preparations that lie ahead.

Fifty IFAS Group staff members came together for a relaxed evening, enjoying good company, a hearty pub meal, and a few beverages to wash it all down. The festive atmosphere provided a welcome break from the usual work settings. It was an opportunity for colleagues to shed their work-related formalities, unwind, and enjoy a relaxed atmosphere that only a Christmas party can offer.

The event was not just about revelry; it was also an occasion for the company’s management to address the gathered staff. General Manager Sifa Filihia took the stage to express gratitude on behalf of the entire management team. He urged everyone to close out the year on a strong note, acknowledging the approaching demands of a busy year-end workload. There was also light shed on the management team’s focus from this year and the company’s aspirations for the upcoming 2024 year.

One of the most eagerly anticipated moments of the evening was the “Employee of the Year” award, a recognition that spotlights exceptional dedication and outstanding performance. This year, the honour went to Jose Da Cruz Cham, a security guard whose commitment to his work consistently went above and beyond. His strong work ethic, punctuality, and relentless dedication to personal improvement made him the deserving recipient of this prestigious accolade.

As the night unfolded, the atmosphere was filled with laughter and good conversation, underscoring the success of the event. It was a gathering that seamlessly blended professional camaraderie with the joy of the holiday season. The evening’s festivities reminded everyone that, even in the world of security and hard work, there’s always room to celebrate and come together.

A fun and memorable night was had by all, leaving everyone with a sense of shared accomplishment and festive spirits that would undoubtedly carry them through the busy months ahead. The early Christmas celebration was a testament to IFAS Group’s commitment to not only maintaining high professional standards but also nurturing a sense of community and festivity among its dedicated staff.
