Andilab, and her Area Managers: Grace Asedillo, Crismar Escalon, Lanie Montaño and Hazel Laurente.

Serve and Lead, KMBI's Retreat Theme Emphasizes

All KMBI Head Office staff took time out of their daily office routine to focus on reuniting themselves as one family under God.

With the theme, “Me & My Family: Serving Joyfully, Leading Faithfully”, this year’s Head Office Staff Retreat took place at Klir Waterpark Resort in Guiguinto, Bulacan last August 11-12, 2017.

Ms. Gloria Jimenez, spouse of KMBI President and Vice-Chairman Mr. Eduardo C. Jimenez, filled the first day with an inspirational message about raising a God-fearing family and developing successors. Central to the discussion is the excerpt from the verse of Joshua 24:15, “…But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.”

The Jimenez couple shared their concept of family in the context of modern-day Christianity and how it is applicable and relevant in the workplace.

The first day was capped off by group performances during the fellowship night.

On the next day, all staff gathered in groups for the team building activities.

KMBI Staff Retreat aims to reflect on the biblical foundation and purpose of a Christian family in our society and take time to bond with colleagues and relax from the usual day-to-day activities, among others.

The Regional Staff Retreat is set to take place on September 15-16, 2017.
