This was followed by an informational awareness session conducted by Galfar’s Welfare Officer MD Arshad Jamal, on the health hazards of alcohol abuse. The workers were then quizzed about the company and the upcoming World Cup tournament to be held in Qatar. They were also given an awareness session on basic etiquette and manners, on which they answered questions later. The entire HR team then led the group in some fun games in which the participants competed enthusiastically to win prizes. The event ended with refreshments and snacks for all. “This was a new initiative taken up by the HR team and was well received by the employees. The event was a grand success and we have decided to continue such events at the various camps at regular intervals,” said Galfar’s Senior General Manager Joy G. Pettah.
