CJIAC honours its Administrative Assistants

Across the world, Administrative Professional Week is observed during the last full week of April, with the Wednesday of that week being observed as Administrative Professionals day.

Over the years CJIAC has joined many other employers in Guyana in observing this week/day.

This year was no different, as the Human Resources Department made a special effort to recognize the Administrative Professionals within the organization. These employees were treated to a fabulous evening of dinning and winning. The Lovely ladies were chauffeured to dinner, where their Managers took time out to thank and pamper them.

Thereafter they were presented, much to their surprise and pleasure with gift certificates, of a significant value from John Lewis Styles.

These ladies admitted to indeed feeling loved and appreciated by the efforts that the HR Department made on their behalf.
