Anadeen Nembhard, head of people, talent and culture at Sygnus, in expressing the team’s enthusiasm for the event, said: “We had a great experience coming on board for this initiative as we had our own ‘elf’ team which came together in the shopping and wrapping of all the gifts at our ‘Santa workshop’ at the office. The Sygnus team enjoyed partnering with Kiwanis CyberConnect of Jamaica to support the Bustamante Hospital for Children to spread Christmas cheer during the holiday season.”
