RESEARCH Now SSI held a memorial service for Davao employees at the site of the NCCC Mall to honor the 37 employees who perished in a fire at the site on December 23, 2017.

Rick Watson, the company’s U.S.-based Global Vice President for Operations, and Alan Superfine, the company’s Computer-Assisted Telephone Interviewing (CATI) Business General Manager, were also present.

They were joined by family members of those lost in the tragedy.

Held on January 11 in Davao, the ceremony started at 10 a.m., the approximate time the fire broke out, and began with a prayer and a blessing, after which the families placed the names of their loved ones on memorial wreaths.

“On behalf of the entire Research Now SSI family, we express our profound sorrow over the passing of

our 37 colleagues and offer our condolences and prayers to their family members and loved ones,” Mr. Watson said.

He thanked the company’s Davao employees for their courage and steadfastness. “Your strength and resilience serve as an inspiration to us during this difficult time,” he said. (pr-ssi)
