Last January 30, Visayan Electric Company’s (VECO) held its first-ever Contractors’ Day to pay tribute to around 500 linemen, foremen, and personnel from different contractors providing technical, customer service, administrative work, engineering, janitorial, and security services.
Held at the VECO Development Academy in Brgy. Sirao, Cebu City, the event included different games, a short parade, and sports competition for table tennis, chess, and basketball.
The lineman’s rodeo, meter reading contest, meter installation, and emergency crew rodeo events were held in the afternoon followed by a ‘Contractor’s Got Talent’ show in the evening.
“We consider them as our partners. VECO will not be what it is now without them,” said VECO Vice President for Engineering Valentin Saludes III.
He added that the contractors have contributed to the company by not only augmenting manpower as needed but also in improving the quality of services the company provides.
