After everyone is done eating and are ready to be drown into the night of awards and surprises. The night started with a mini flash mob at around 8:30 PM. The number was so energetic- enough to fill the room with fun and excitement.

|The beyond talented Cainta Rave Dancers in their cute varsity jackets- which I love.|
This night is as well the grand finals of the Teletech Idol. Since this year's theme is Rock Generation, the Teletech Idols sang their favorite rock anthem songs from the 60's up to the present.
|They are all really good. They made every one in the ball room all party rockin'!|
I won't hold it long to announce who the winners were. Drum rolls please!
|2nd price goes to Dumaguete Delivery Center singing her own rock version of Rolling in the Deep- woot woot!|
|1st place is from Roxas Delivery Center doing Sweet Child of Mine.|
|The grand winner goes to the Cebu Delivery Center with her entertaining rock version of Proud Mary. She nailed it!|
While the Teletech Idol battles the stage, the nominees are as well on the edge of their seats to find out who made it to the top, and they are as follows:
After hearing all their achievements and how they top not just one month but to some three, and how they all made a huge impact to their sites and to their fellow associates made me really think they all deserve the spot, and they indeed need to be recognized for such. What really got me drooling is the iPad 2 that comes with the plaque and certificate...:O This night was actually raining iPad 2. Too bad the rain didn't fell on me..haha We were waiting for the final announcement of the big boss for more surprises or for what to expect on 2013.

This year is the celebration of Teletech's 30th anniversary. Ken launched the I am Teletech video, and challenged everyone to create their own video. Whoever does the best video would win $5,000. This year's focus is on charities. Ken has donated $100,000 to schools and organization that the employees had nominated, because he thought that the Philippines has gone through a lot of disasters, and by helping charities and schools would be the least he could do (standing ovation). What really kept us standing is the proposal for next year's top 30 employees that would make a difference to the company is that, he would fly all 30 top employees for an all-expense-paid-vacation to Florida to experience first hand Disneyland, as he noticed how his kids love the place. He thought we might love it too!!! I was crossing my fingers from then on....lols!
What really made a mark for me on Ken's speech is when he said "Why would I be given an award? This is your night. My job is simple. All I need to do is to make everyone believe that things are easy and achievable, so that my staff and you would think it is doable too." "What I do is to push, push, push people to do their best".

I was beyond grateful being able to attend special events such as this. Even if I was not part of the 10 Most Outstanding employees of the year, being able to travel, taste wonderful food, be in a very grand place, wore an elegant dress, being able to walk on that yellow and red carpet, and got to meet amaziiiingly over the top hard working employees makes me really think that I am a winner here too. I never in my entire life thought that I would be recognized for doing what I do. Hey! I'm not an expert at work, I commit a lot of errors too. I only believe that doing my best in everything is always the key...xoxo!
I need to keep you hanging for the after party gig that we went to. I noticed this post is way to long already. Thanks for hanging around, and for the comments, I am truly grateful..:)
