After all, it was a grand celebration that paid homage to the so-called unsung heroes of the real estate industry—the caretakers, drivers, and construction workers, among others. With such a huge event dedicated to them, these workers ended their day feeling even more inspired to go the extra mile.

A different kind of gratitude and camaraderie can also be felt as Suntrust officials and employees—who had organized this celebration—took time out of their busy schedules to join the workers and spend a whole fun day with them.

FEATURED STORIES

Truly, the whole-day affair was one for the books—a memory that each participant will treasure forever, a validation of their worth as part of the Suntrust family, and a rightful recognition of all the hard work they’ve put in throughout the years.

To give you a feel of what transpired during Suntrust’s 20th anniversary celebration here’s what some of the participants had to say.

It was a joyous occasion which, for me, is a once in a lifetime experience because it’s not everyday that we are given the chance to attend an event that’s specifically planned for us.

It’s my first time to attend an event wherein the one who played host was the property developer itself. I just feel so happy and thankful to have experienced this. It was something I’ve never really expected and they made us feel important and appreciated.

I have been an employee of Suntrust for five years now, and I’m happy and proud to be a part of a company that knows how to give back and recognize the role that every individual plays, no matter what the position maybe. I value Suntrust because I can see the effort that they put in to ensure that everyone gets to experience a good life.

I was really happy that they came up with this kind of activity where we, Suntrust employees, are able to share our blessings to the people who helped our company grow.

Now, more than ever, I am proud to be a part of the Suntrust family because as an employee myself, I know how good it feels when you are being recognized and thus programs such as this one really has a positive effect on an individual.

I am glad and happy to say that I am part of this activity and I would also like to thank Suntrust as it allowed me to realize and appreciate how truly lucky I am for having a stable job. Being able to give back and share my blessings to our workers is the best part of this activity.

It’s a very fulfilling activity, as it made us realize how truly lucky and blessed we are and at the same time, just be really thankful that we were given the chance to give back and pay homage to our workers.

While it may sound cliché, this event really showed us how it is more important to give than to receive. This selfless act among Suntrust employees shows how much we value our workers. The pooled contributions and the time that we’ve devoted to ensure the event’s success is actually what made it even more meaningful.

We are just really grateful to be given the chance to share whatever little blessings we have. For us employees, events such as this one help make us realize how good we have it.

And for the workers, they get to feel more loved and see that Suntrust is really different because we go beyond the usual employee-employer relationship by ensuring that actual connections are made and the concern is felt.
