Castries, November 2, 2018 – The second annual Dwivé Kwéyòl was held on Saturday, October 20. The activity for team members of the St. Lucia Electricity Services Limited (LUCELEC) was organized by the LUCELEC Club. Dwivé Kwéyòl is unique in that it pulls staff from across the company into a relaxed celebration of Saint Lucian food, games, music and Kwéyòl vibes. It is one of the HR initiatives aimed at enhancing team dynamics. There were also prizes for the Best Dressed Male and Female and live performances from the Secret Solo Band and kuduro stars Mighty & Subance.
The activity was a fitting start to the food, hangout and Kwéyòl atmosphere LUCELEC spread on Friday, October 26 at all company locations. As has become tradition, the company treated customers at its offices in Rodney Bay, Sans Souci and Vieux-Fort to a breakfast treat with Kwéyòl music. Team members at Cul-de-Sac and our Administration office in Sans Souci feasted on Kwéyòl food and drinks before getting down to the business of the day.
A member of the Caribbean Utilities Employees Association (CUEA), the LUCELEC Club is made of and managed by LUCELEC employees. Lineman Kirk Aroudel from the Transmission & Distribution Department heads the Club Executive. The Vice-President is Carryl Haynes from the Generation Department, Secretary Septima Louisy of the Transmission & Distribution Department, Treasurer Julie Scott from Finance & Accounts and Communications Director Chelsa Jongue from the Corporate Communications Department. Two Trustees in the persons of Jean-Michel Parle from the Planning Department and Kedia Daniel from Human Resources round off the Executive.
Dwivé Kwéyòl is one of several activities hosted by the LUCELEC Club this year. The Executive also oversees staff participation in inter-commercial sporting competitions like FUTSAL and dominoes.
