Rocketeers receive recognition for outstanding work

December 18, 2021 – Rocket Station hosted its annual celebration of standout Rocketeers, the Rocket Station Awards 2021. The honorable awardees are individuals who have allowed the organization to flourish and grow despite facing numerous challenges due to the pandemic. The event highlights their hard work and excellence as an inspiration to future generations of Rocketeers.

The awarding ceremony was started off by Rocket Station’s COO, Marc Nickell. He delivered a powerful message of gratitude, inspiration, and hope. Marc discussed the challenges of the year, particularly the great trials and tribulations that came with the pandemic. It was a very difficult period for everyone. However, through toughness, grit, and living with the Rocket Station values, the organization still grew to almost twice its size from the beginning of the year. Marc further emphasized that this was all done from a distance, without having the opportunity to meet and work face to face. 2021 truly is an inspiring story of Rocketeers supporting each other to grow to the best version of themselves.

Rocket Station’s Director of Philippine Operations, Romil Hombrebueno followed this up by giving a recap of the amazing accomplishments achieved in 2021. This included successfully launching new events that provided team members with an avenue to have fun while releasing stress. Included in these events are the Rocket Station Virtual Race and the Rocket Station Virtual Olympics that allowed participants from all over the country to exercise and build a sense of community. Also launched this year was Rocketeer Hopeline, an initiative to give support for mental wellness within the organization, and Our Proud Space, Rocket Station’s push for a better workplace for the LGBTQ+ community. This year was also big on letting Rocketeers show their creative side through events such as Wicked Workspace, and the long-awaited Rocketeers Got Talent Season 2.

However, the biggest achievement mentioned by Romil is undoubtedly Rocket Station’s Great Place to Work® certification. He highlights the many obstacles that were present in getting the certification. Romil thanked Rocketeers and emphasized how it was a team effort that made this possible. The Great Place to Work® certification is evidence of the amazing work culture built over the years by each and every member of the organization.

The night then proceeded to the awarding ceremony starting with the Years of Service Award presented by Business Development Lead, Michi Fujiwara. The Years of Service Award recognizes the loyalty and dedication of people who have been with Rocket Station for over 3 years. Their commitment to the organization is the backbone of the great strides of success Rocket Station has achieved throughout the years.

Here are the Awardees:

Before the night was over, the results of the Rocket Station Cares initiative was also showcased. Ten schools from all over the Philippines received 10,000 pesos worth of assistance from Rocket Station. This is part of a continuous effort to pursue the organization’s goal of enhancing the lives of other people, whoever and wherever they may be.

The Rocket Station Awards 2021 was then closed by none other than Rocket Station’s own CEO, Rob Nickell. Rob gave a powerful speech to end the evening. He thanked not just the awardees, but every Rocketeer that made the success of 2021 possible. Rob emphasized the gravity of the pandemic, and that not a single sacrifice is taken for granted. He expressed his appreciation and awe at the results that have come from the work of everyone in the team. The quality of the community and its values also received praise from Rocket Station’s young CEO. Every Rocketeer is on a journey to empower other people, may it be family, a team member, or another part of the greater community they’re in.  Rob ended by expressing his excitement for the things Rocketeers will accomplish in the coming years, and wished everyone a Merry Christmas.

The Rocket Station Awards 2021 truly puts an exclamation mark on a year filled with success. The stories and messages shared throughout the evening are things to look back on as Rocket Station takes another step towards a brighter tomorrow.
