#D11Code: DyCode Outing Day!

The movement of the IT world is getting more dynamic everyday. In any part of the world, tech companies – especially startups, continue to struggle, make changes, create new things. The requirement of every tech worker’s creativity becomes higher, in line with the market demands. It is how these companies can survive: relying on the creativity and persistence of every employee.

As described in the HR In Asia article on the importance of team outing in recharging human energy, creativity and motivation, DyCode recognizes the importance of togetherness and cohesiveness in our own team. That’s why we held DyCode Outing Day on Wednesday, May 9, 2018. Coinciding with DyCode’s 11th anniversary, we decided to celebrate today by having fun with the entire DyCode crew – including DycodeX and DycodeEdu.

The company outing day event is actually an annual event organized by DyCode as a refreshment and to bond the whole team. This year we decided to have fun at Wisata Grafika Cikole, Lembang, in northern Bandung. Cikole is a famous mountain forest area at the foot of Mount Tangkuban Perahu, with a cool natural air and not so far from downtown Bandung. It only took us about an hour and a half driving to get there from DyPlex. We were greeted with an Outbound team that will guide us during outbound and team-building sessions.

The various team-building games were very interesting and followed by the entire crew of DyCode with great enthusiasm. Divided into groups, each group were eager to complete the challenges with full concentration and teamwork, along with endless laughters. Unbeknownst to us, these games have cultivated a sense of togetherness and strengthened the sense of familiarity between DyCode crew.

DyCode outing event that day was wrapped with dinner and sharing session at Natural Strawberry Restaurant, still in Lembang area, not far from Cikole. The DyCode crew had prepared several ideas to enliven the so-called talent shows, such as the drama skits and stand-up comedy. We also exchanged gifts to one another, and got surprised with the creativity of the gift ideas.

At the end of the show, our CEO Andri Yadi and COO Gina Rizka made announcements about Rookie and Best Employee Of The Year from DyCode and DycodeX. For DyCode, Rookie of The Year went to Faisal Haris from HR department. While from DycodeX, Rookie of The Year went to Indra Ginanjar, the IoT Engineer. As for Employee of The Year from DyCode was held by Ari Fajrianda ‘Ryan’ Alfi the Project Manager, while DycodeX Employee Of The Year is Alwin Arrasyid, our Lead Programmer. All of them are entitled to hold the trophy and special gift from the company. Congratulations, guys!

Birthday celebrations will not be complete without a candle blowing event and a piece of cake. We all wishing all the best for DyCode in this year 11th years and many years to come. happy anniversary DyCode!
