With sports being a great way for maintaining work-life balance and enhancing team members’ physical and emotional well-being, in addition to dragon boating, GEG organizes basketball games, soccer games and interdepartmental bowling challenges for team members to participate. The GEG Dragon Boat Team garnered numerous awards, and this will be its 14th consecutive year competing in the Macau International Dragon Boat Races. Tyson Hoi, the Coach and Captain of the team, said, “I’m very grateful that the company provides full support to the dragon boat team. It is a traditional activity that strengthens team communication and cooperation. I also want to thank our team for spending extra hours and effort on dragon boat practice. The dragon boat team members come from various departments of GEG’s different properties. Without the support from and coordination of the company, the various departments and our colleagues, it would not be possible for the whole team to gather together to practice. I hope that we can unleash our passion to achieve a good result again this year.”
