A day out with Colleagues!

Taking a day away from the routine hustle and bustle helps rejuvenate oneself. This practice, if employed at the corporate level, enlightens the employees to spend quality time with colleagues. Every year, we as a technology team of Capital IQ plan for a day out to a resort within the city. The fresher’s systematize and coordinate this process each year which helps them gain greater interaction with the other employees and also gives them an exposure to team work.
We (Capital IQ Technology Fresher’s 2010) started off with the preparations well in advance, as we had to plan out for the venue, transportation, food, the events to be conducted etc. After a lot of discussion, we finalized on 9th July at Lahari Resorts. A phenomenal poster was designed to convey the same. Apart from the events to be conducted at the resort, a few online contests like Logo Identification and Photo Quiz were conducted on 8th July to kick off the outing spirit. Almost all the employees participated in these events with great enthusiasm and excitement, and the winners were presented with prizes. Hearty Congratulations to the winners!
Finally the most awaited day arrived! We all started off in buses and cars around 12 noon, and had great time playing dumb-charades on the way. Within an hour, we reached Lahari Resorts, a Luxury Resort with a serene and an eco-friendly ambience. The resort was very well equipped with Swimming pools, Restaurants, a Cricket Stadium, a Play Area and several other leisure activities for all ages. We had a happy, joyful and a fun-filled day. At night, we had dinner and tapped our feet to the Disco, the best part of the outing. On the whole, every one of us enjoyed the perfect corporate destination.
Our effort was well appreciated at the end of the day! Hearty Congratulations to my co-fresher’s on the grand success of this major event, which is our first achievement as a team. We Rock! Special Thanks to Raghu Vamshi, Business Analyst at Capital IQ, who guided all of us in organizing and harmonizing the outing. Eagerly looking forward to enjoy the next one! :)
