MGM hosted its very first “Employee Talent Competition”, attracting over 300 team members to cheer for the 15 finalists who were performing their best dance moves, amazing singing voices, intriguing magic tricks and more on the grand stage of MGM Theater.
Aiming to build a platform for team members to showcase their talents, MGM rolled out this competition online to promote work-life balance and enliven team spirit in a fun and causal way. As a family-friendly employer, MGM has especially set up the “Family and Friends Talents” category to encourage team members to perform with their family and friends. The competition started off with collecting video clips of team member’s talent performances, where a total of 110 entries by 86 team members of different departments and places of origin were received in the first round.
After months of selection processes, 15 finalists stood out from the crowd and had the opportunity to shine their talents on the stage of MGM Theater, Asia’s first dynamic theater where many celebrities and stars have also performed at. Alongside the dazzling visuals projected on the giant 900-square-metre 4K LED screen and other remarkable stage effects, this astonishing show was produced with MGM’s professional entertainment standard. The finalists bought to the audiences an array of dancing, singing, instrument performance and many other intriguing performances. After receiving rounds of applause, the band trio of Angelo, Katrina and Jhay from Food and Beverage Department concluded the show by scoring the Top Talent Award with their incredible singing performance.
Sabrina Chang from Cage Department received two awards, the Outstanding Award in Musical Instruments Category with piano solo, and Team Award in Friends and Family Category with dance performance performed with her group of dancing enthusiastic friends. She said, “This competition hosted both online and offline enabled me to share my passion in dancing, as well as playing the piano on such a grand and professional stage. Though preparing the competition was quite a challenge for me, it was indeed an unforgettable one and I am so proud of myself for all the outcome. I thank MGM for hosting this fun competition, so that we could showcase our talent outside of work and get tons of kind recognitions.”
