JAKARTA, NNC -- There are many ways a company can do to foster the value of discipline and cohesiveness, one of which is by conducting sporting events, especially football which is the most popular sport in Indonesia.
PT Pegadaian (Persero) held a football match between PT PT Pegadaian (Persero) football team, The Gade Football, versus the football team "Indonesia Football Ambassador" which contains Indonesian football legends, including the Indonesian national legendary striker, Ricky Yakobi.
Meanwhile, The Gade Football team consisted of several SOE directors. The Indonesia Football Ambassador finally won the match with a score of 2-1.
In the match held at PTIK Stadium Jakarta, Saturday morning, (10/13) Indonesian football legends consisting of Ricky Yakobi, Patar Tambunan, Feri Sandria, Rully Nere, and Rochy Putiray were expected to spread the spirit of cohesiveness, discipline and sportsmanship to Pegadaian employees.
"In football there are many positive values to be learned, if compared, football is a miniature of something big. In addition, football is a simplification of something complex. That something is analogous to an organization or company," said Pegadaian President Director Sunarso.
For Sunarso, in football there is always a goal. To achieve these goals it requires organization, cooperation, and strategy. In football there are also collective decisions, individual decisions, and decisions that have been designed, just like in organizations.
"Today's match is a form of our appreciation as SOE representatives to appreciate the former Indonesian football national team athletes," continued Sunarso.
In addition, this served as medium for SOEs to greet and meet former athletes. Ricky Yakobi who is a former Indonesian National Team at the 1987 Sea Games appreciated this match.
"This match is a gathering event organized by PSSI [Football Association of Indonesia] and Pegadaian to maintain health and fitness," Ricky said.
He also hopes that this match will be carried out again in the future.
The game atmosphere that morning was more festive because Pegadaian opened The Gade Coffe stand to introduce Pegadaian coffee product and other products to the people who were present at the stadium.
