A new initiative within the walls of Celtrino has seen employees being encouraged to introduce their culture and cuisine to work colleagues on a monthly basis.
What started out on a trial basis has gradually been embraced and has become an eagerly anticipated event for all our employees. Its a fantastic opportunity to understand more about the many nationalities who drive the success of the company on a weekly bases.
Our latest event was India day. Hosted in the boardroom, we all gathered for a very informative video (click here to watch it) based on all of the wonderful facts about India, its many languages, and stunning images of this beautiful country.
We were treated to some traditional Indian dance by Gunjan and after a quick Q&A session with Juby, Fazil, Debangen, Gunjan, Hasitha, Archana and Sandeep we exited to our rooftop terrace which was bathed in bright sunshine to enjoy all of the homemade Indian delights provided by our hosts.
After a brief overview of the delicacies on offer the hungry employees got stuck in to a colorful array of dishes provided.
Given some reassurance that the spiciness of the dishes had been toned down I tucked in to a tasty onion bhaji and added some chicken and lemon rice to my plate. My dish was bursting with flavors and it was not long before employees began queuing up for second helpings and an ensuing food coma.
We would like to thank all the guys for the huge effort on their part giving us the opportunity to experience a different culture in the workplace. It engaged our staff members in conversations about India and about the tasty treats prepared by our hosts. It was such a success that it was suggested we have India day everyday!
Stay tuned to Celtrino’s blog for our next cultural day of wonder brought to us by our lovely Sri Lankan accountant Madhu.
