To ensure the quality of exported wood chips, manual chip picking is an indispensable step in the production process at PTC. Chip picking is the job of removing the bark left over during the debarking and chipping process. At the branches in Nghi Son and Phu My, the field team is the team responsible for this task.

With the purpose of creating a playground of solidarity, attachment and understanding between departments, on April 20, 2024, the Board of Directors of PTC organized the “Picking up woodchips” at Phu My branch.

The competition will be divided into 2 teams and there is no limit to the number of participants in each team. Two teams will participate in picking shells for 1 hour (with a break). At the end of the time as above, the individual from the team with the highest volume of shells will win the prize of 3,000,000 VND, the remaining team will receive the “Consolation” prize. The QC department will be responsible for acting as the jury of the competition.

The characteristic of the job of picking wood chips is that you have to work directly in the field, and have to be “quick and quick” to remove impurities in hot weather. Therefore, based on my experience, it is not difficult to predict that the field team won the final match. Representatives of the Board of Directors and the Organizing Committee awarded prizes to the two teams immediately after the QC department announced the results.

This competition is an unforgettable experience for other departments to feel and understand the hard work of the field team, and is also an opportunity for the PTC team to bond and develop more. Hopefully in the future PTC will have more similar contests to bring more joy to work, building a united and strong team.
