There’s a lot more to Sunday than just his day job as a Site Technician at GF Corys. A valued member of the Corys community, Sunday is an avid football fan, playing with his colleagues and friends whenever he has the chance. At our recent internal tournament, Sunday got to show off his skills in a series of matches that united the entire Corys community.   The purpose of these tournaments is not just to give Sunday or others an outlet for their talent, it’s to also help encourage everyone to get to know one another.

In Sunday’s case, his skills with a football helped to inspire others in his team to victory. Everyone, even his line manager, followed his lead! Perhaps that’s why Sunday earned the coveted title of MVP at the end of the game too.  We believe that getting away from the day-to-day hustle can be incredibly rewarding, which is why we organize inter-departmental events every few months. Creating a positive work culture isn’t something that can be taken for granted.
