Let's dive into the main event - the activation day to work at an alternative location. Taking place on Wednesday 19 July 2023, the BRP organizer for this year, Ang Cong Shen, Head of Transaction Monitoring Compliance, activated all CYS Global Remit at 6.56 am despite the heavy rainfall that morning.
The activation location was set at the Lifelong Learning Institute in Paya Lebar. Amidst the gloomy weather, spirits were high and filled with enthusiasm. Early comers assisted with setting up the venue, and the last employee reported in at around 9:15 am—an impressive feat considering how most employees needed more than an hour to reach the location.
Packet nasi lemak was served for breakfast, fuelling everyone with nutrition and energy for the day. Our daily morning town hall meeting, end-of-the-day team meetings, and other scheduled meetings and trainings were conducted as usual, in spite of the limited resources as compared to our regular office setup.
Even lunch, coffee, tea, and snacks were brought over by our CYS in-house cafe team—prepared, catered and transported over from our office premises once the activation message was received. The day went through without a glitch and we wrapped up everything on time before we called it a big success.
That's not the end of it though. CYS employees were still activated in the days following the main event, only this time, the activation location was nearer to our office premises. While we didn't work at the alternative location, CYS members simply reported there for attendance before heading back to the office for seamless operations. Most importantly, customers did not experience anything unusual in our operations during this period and this was a BIG WIN for us.
CYS Global Remit's BRP proves that resilience, camaraderie, and adaptability are the heart and soul of our company culture. CYS Global Remit is always ready to serve you and with our BRP in place, we're primed to deliver excellence, even amidst uncertainty.
