75 Hard Challenge

75 Hard Challenge


At Staff Domain, we believe that employee engagement is the cornerstone of a thriving workplace. Our commitment to fostering a positive and growth-oriented environment has led us to introduce a unique staff engagement program inspired by Andy Frisella’s 75 Hard Challenge. This initiative is designed to encourage personal development, resilience, and teamwork among our employees.

The 75 Hard Challenge, conceptualized by entrepreneur and speaker Andy Frisella, is not just a fitness regimen but a transformative mental toughness program. It involves a set of daily tasks to be completed consistently over 75 days. These tasks include two 45-minute workouts (one of which must be outdoors), drinking a gallon of water, following a strict diet with no cheat meals or alcohol, reading 10 pages of a non-fiction book, and taking a progress photo. The challenge is known for its demanding nature, pushing participants to develop discipline, grit, and perseverance.

At Staff Domain, we have embraced this challenge as a staff engagement program to promote holistic well-being and personal growth among our team members. Twelve enthusiastic candidates from various departments have embarked on this journey, each bringing their unique motivations and aspirations.

Why the 75 Hard Challenge?

The decision to adopt the 75 Hard Challenge was driven by our understanding of the profound impact that mental and physical well-being has on overall performance and job satisfaction. Employees will be provided with an opportunity to push their boundaries, discover their potential, and build a stronger sense of community within the organization.

The Journey Begins

Our 12 candidates, hailing from different departments such as sales, customer service, marketing, and IT, have shown remarkable enthusiasm and determination from day one. Each participant is supported by a mentor, our very own CEO, Justin Pavsic, who not only guides them through the challenge but also offers encouragement and accountability.

Mental Resilience

Beyond the physical transformation, the 75 Hard Challenge is a test of mental fortitude. Participants will share how the daily challenge requirements have expanded their knowledge and inspired new ideas. We will share the progress of their journey with timely documentation, reinforcing the idea that small, consistent efforts lead to significant results.

Building a Supportive Community

One of the most rewarding aspects of this program will be the sense of camaraderie it aims to foster. This collective journey looks to strengthen the relationships and create a positive, collaborative atmosphere at Staff Domain.

The Path Forward

As our candidates continue their 75-day journey, their stories of resilience, growth, and transformation will inspire others within the organization to take on new challenges and strive for excellence.

At Staff Domain, we are committed to nurturing a culture of continuous improvement and personal development. The 75 Hard Challenge is just one of the many initiatives we have planned to engage our employees and help them achieve their fullest potential. We believe that by investing in our people, we are building a stronger, more resilient organization that can tackle any challenge and achieve great success.

Join us as we follow the journeys of our 12 brave candidates and witness the incredible transformations they undergo. Together, we are proving that with the right mindset and unwavering determination, anything is possible.

Celebrating Acts of Kindness: A Recap of Our May 2024 Staff Engagement Event

Celebrating Acts of Kindness: A Recap of Our May 2024 Staff Engagement Event

Celebrating Acts of Kindness Header

In the bustling corridors of our office, amidst the hum of productivity and the click of keyboards, we recently came together for a remarkable event centered around the theme of “Act of Kindness”. It was a day where the spirit of giving back enveloped us all, leaving an indelible mark of compassion and solidarity.

On Thursday 16 May 2024, our team, adorned in white tops and jeans, gathered at our offices for a heartwarming celebration. The aroma of Beef Potjie Kos filled the air, evoking not just the joy of a shared meal but also the essence of community and togetherness.

But beyond the culinary delights, what truly made this event special was our collective effort to make a difference in the lives of others. Instead of lavishly decorating our space or awarding winners, we decided to channel those resources towards a noble cause.

Guided by the ethos of giving back to our community, we chose to support IMPOPHOMO, a local non-profit organization in need of assistance. Together, we collected a plethora of essential items, ranging from hygiene products to clothing and blankets. Each donation, whether big or small, was a testament to our commitment to making a positive impact.

We are immensely proud to share that 32 dedicated staff members, spanning both day and night shifts, graced our event with their presence. Their enthusiasm and generosity exemplified the spirit of unity and compassion that defines our workplace culture.

As we reflect on this event, we are reminded of the power of collective action and the joy that comes from selflessly giving to others. It is a reminder that even in the midst of our busy schedules, we can always find time to extend a helping hand to those in need.

Our journey of kindness does not end here. As we look towards the future, we will continue our efforts in fostering a culture of generosity and empathy we are committed to creating more opportunities for meaningful engagement and making a lasting impact in our community.

To all our team members who participated and contributed, thank you for your unwavering support and dedication. Together, we have shown that even the smallest acts of kindness can ignite a ripple of positive change.

Let us carry this spirit of kindness with us, not just today, but every day, as we strive to make the world a better place, one act of kindness at a time.

We’ve still got an amazing lineup of thrilling Staff Engagement events in store for 2024!

In June, we will have an exhilarating Mobster Masquerade and a lively karaoke competition.

The office was adorned with a larger-than-life Mad Hatter’s hat, a playful flamingo, colorful draping’s, and towering playing cards. A giant clock served as a reminder that time was of the essence, while teacups added a touch of whimsy to the atmosphere.

Highlighting the day were the Best Dressed competition winners, Wessel Pretorius as Sheriff Woody Pride and Tshegofatso Fortunate as Princess Cinderella, complete with her stunning silver glass slippers. Their creativity and attention to detail truly brought the characters to life. 

The excitement continued with a hilarious game of “Guess the Disney Movie Charades.” Durie Kaffoor and Nokukhanya Princess Phakathi emerged victorious, showcasing their knowledge of famous Disney movies and their theme songs, much to the delight of their colleagues.

Characters from beloved Disney classics roamed the office, from Minnie Mouses to Aladdin, Cruella De Vil to Superman and Wednesday creating a spectacle of color and cheer. Our staff embraced the opportunity to dress up and embody their favorite characters, adding to the festive atmosphere.

To fuel our adventurers, lunch options included a delectable spread from Chicken Licken and Pedro’s, featuring hot wings, loaded wraps, salads, buns, rice, pap and chakalaka, and refreshing beverages. It was a feast fit for royalty, enjoyed by all.

From our work-from-home team to our everyday office and hybrid working employees, everyone came together as a family once again. Laughter echoed through the office as bonds were strengthened and memories were made. As we bid farewell to our Wonderland adventure, we carry with us the joy and camaraderie that define the spirit of Staff Domain SA.

Our gathering moved seamlessly from activities to a delectable dinner spread. Welcomed with cocktails, we enjoyed every moment of togetherness as we dined on succulent beef burgers, T-bone steaks, chicken drumsticks, and a variety of mouthwatering sides.
No detail was spared in catering to every member of our diverse family. While the adults relished in savory delights, the little ones delighted in their own special menu of chicken strips and chips. And who could forget the sweet finale? Malva pudding and custard warmed our hearts, while the toddlers reveled in ice cream topped with luscious chocolate sauce.

With about 60 cherished members of our staff in attendance, the event was not just a celebration of teamwork but also a testament to the strength of our bonds as a work family. Together, we laughed, played, and created memories that will be cherished for years to come.

Staff Domain’s Sands and Suds Summer Party

Staff Domain's Sands and Suds Summer Party

Staff Domain Summer Outing 2024

Stronger and more determined than any force of nature, all 123 participants of Staff Domain’s Sands and Suds Summer Party competed, collaborated, and celebrated on that gorgeous Zambales beachfront. 

At Merbau Events and Villas, in true SD fashion, the company’s summer team-building event this year was once again a resounding success. Everyone came out a little browner and redder, and ran a little hotter, but ended up closer overall.

Getting There

Two buses and eight cars made their way to Zambales, their trips punctuated by the occasional traffic jam. Those in the buses were unfazed by the delays, however, since they alternated between bouts of sleep and karaoke. 

While many battled for the crown (and the mic) in bus one, namely Kristopher Cabrera, Keemo Ricablanca, Juan Gabriele Eisma, Maria Cristina Encinas, Renee Rose Mercado, and Maria Cristina Combs, in bus two, Alvin Tan was the undisputed karaoke king.

A few hours later, everyone was given a blazing hot welcome at Merbau – literally. According to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA), the temperature that weekend reached a peak of 53 degrees CelsiusThe heat didn’t deter anyone, of course. It helped that all the activities had been moved indoors as well. 

May the Best Team Win

Speaking of the activities, event organiser Equip did not disappoint again this year. Despite the last-minute decision to forego outdoor activities, they managed to facilitate a fun, energetic, but still moving, experience.

After a heartwarming message from Staff Domain’s ever-supportive CFO, Ben Rajah, the participants were divided into six teams – White Cebu, Green Bohol, Purple Boracay, Orange Palawan, Pink Samal, and Blue Siargao. The activities included a communication-themed sharing forum, a collaboration-focused creative workshop, and a fun-filled introduction catwalk.

While everyone had a blast going through the assignments, at the end of the day, it was a competition and there had to be a winner. Blue Siargao came out on top with 445 points. This writer was serendipitously part of that dream team. Some time later and the team’s battle cry still resonates loudly in everyone’s hearts – Bughaw Siargao!

The Night Gets Hotter

After some much-needed respite, everyone went to the beachfront for one of the highlights of the summer party – the SD Summer Body competition. This platform for self-love and inclusion encouraged people of all gender identities and body types to confidently celebrate their individuality on the stage.

Weeks of preparation, voting, and just overall raw excitement had been building up to that point. Most people knew who were competing, and who they wanted to win. Despite that, no one could have anticipated the sheer grandiosity of the actual pageant.

One after another, the contestants came out swinging – not with their fists, but with their witty introductions, sassy runway antics, and steamy getups. Some contestants notably joined to counter norms and stereotypes, while others wanted an avenue for self-expression. Either way, the audience got a show they will not soon forget.

Amid everything, the crowd was also treated to awe-inspiring song performances by host Vincent Olson, while a party of gorgeous models
danced behind him. By the end, everyone was on the edge of their seats, waiting for the judges’ decision.

Irma Illustrisimo took home the SD Body Texters’ Choice award for the female category, while Chad Manangat won the male counterpart, as well as the SD Body Darling of the Crowd award, and the SD Body 1st Prize for the male category. 

Treasure Rosaria and Jenny Rose Reyes won the SD Body 2nd and 1st Prizes respectively for the female category. Dave Ernest got the SD Body 2nd Prize for the male category.

For the SD Body Best in Outfit award, Honeylit Brecino and Moises Salazar received the recognition.

The night’s biggest winners did not only win the favour of the judges, but the hearts of the audiences as well. 

Aside from earning the SD Body Best in Swimwear award, Kyle Seria, was named SD Body Grand Winner in the male category.

Tricia Olatan, a fellow Bughaw Siargao champion, continued the winning streak and took home the SD Body Darling of the Crowd and SD Body Best in Swimwear awards. She was also rightfully named the SD Body Grand Winner in the female category.

Summer Suds Soirée

A hard-won battle always needs an equally grand celebration.

After another thoughtful message from Ben, the Suds part of the summer getaway had finally arrived, and the spraying foam welcomed eager partygoers on the stage.

Armed with mixed drinks and beers, everyone loosened up and joined the fray. Some wore their Hawaiian polos, dresses, and chinos, others their swimwear and flip-flops, but all were equal under the white haze of the foam and the loud, rhythmic thumps from the speakers. Not long after, everyone was panting, excited, and wet. 

But the night didn’t end there just yet. Once midnight came, everyone was invited to continue the party by the poolside, conveniently located beside the villas. There, the music was a little more subdued and conversations were a little more intentional.

While the evening did not go out with a bang, everyone eventually proceeded to either their own little after-parties or straight to their cool, embracing beds. 

The magic of the night before was evident in the happy faces of everyone the day after, hangovers and eyebags notwithstanding.

Final Thoughts

On the surface, the Sands and Suds Summer Party can easily be dismissed as just another beach outing. However, there is something inherently different with the way Staff Domain holds its events. Past the activities, parties, awards, freebies, and pageantry, there is an unexplainable glue that keeps everyone together.

For this writer, who had just recently joined the company, it was heartwarming to see everyone enjoy and truly participate in every single activity, instead of just going through the motions. It’s a testament to the warm and solid culture embedded in each of the staff.

Kudos to the awesome HR team who put everything together, and to the company’s leadership for fostering a close-knit and welcoming community. Only a talented team led by an exceptional leader can create such a creative and truly memorable event like this one. Surely, everyone is excited for the next event on the calendar.
