With the addition of 21 new hires that joined the Oppstar family at the end of July 2018, Oppstar decided to hold a welcoming party to officially welcome them. The welcoming party was the result of a newly created team called WOOFT (Workplace Environment Focus Team), led by Mr Khor Chin Hooi. The welcoming party was held at Southbay Plaza Condominium, and was from 4-8pm. Around 70 Oppstar members attended the party.
 

At around 4pm, most Oppstar members arrived at the condominium BBQ area. It started off with a simple yet challenging game called Break The Code – Oppstar edition. Everyone was divided into 6 groups, and had to solve the mystery of a murder. The winning teams would get to eat early according to order. The game committee had put in a lot of effort to ensure that everyone playing the game would enjoy it, and prepared various tricky questions and tasks to complete.
 

After the game, everyone gathered around and the BBQ officially started. Some new hires were tasked to set up the fire, while some were tasked to help barbecue the food. The rest of the members sat around and enjoyed the well-prepared food while chatting away at each other. Many were glad to finally meet their colleagues who were working on other projects in other companies after quite some time. At around 7pm, Oppstar Director Mr Ng Meng Thai had everyone gather in the study area for an Oppstar Staff Meeting. In the meeting, he introduced all the new faces to the Oppstar family, including the 21 new staff as well as the 3 interns that had been working at the company. He also took the chance to congratulate one of the staff regarding the birth of a baby boy, as well as a wedding ceremony for one of the staff. Besides, he highlighted the several achievements that Oppstar has recently made with clients, thanking everyone for their effort. He hopes that the company can continue to have exponential growth in the next few years.

 

After Mr Ng’s speech, the PIC of the welcoming party, Mr Khor Chin Hooi came up for a few words. First, he took the chance to introduce the newly established WOOFT Focus Team. Several main aims of the team is to improve and focus on company workplace welfare, to improve relationships between Oppstar members, as well as to improve job satisfaction. The programmes that had been proposed by WOOFT for the next few months would be the Employee Benefit Program (EPB), an e-newsletter which would be updated every 3 months, a revamp and update for the Oppstar webiste which is currently in progress, a year-end team building (which was highly suggested to be overseas), as well as an Oppstar 5th Year Anniversary Celebration Event. Everyone present was very excited and looked forward to all these new ideas being implemented. At around 8pm, the celebration party came to a halt. The leftover BBQ food was taken home in order to avoid wastage, and all the staff helped out to clean up the place. Everyone enjoyed the celebration event a lot, and are looking forward to a similar welfare event to be held in the near future.
