December 2020 ended quietly for most of us. Perhaps some of us enjoyed a toast with a loved one as we watched an empty Times Square countdown to midnight on our televisions, but many of us turned in early, looking forward to waking in a fresh new year. We are encouraged by the amazing technological advances in the Life Sciences Industry that have enabled several COVID-19 vaccines to come to market at mind-boggling record speed and gives great promise to 2021.
At DataCeutics/Navitas Data Sciences, December was a very busy and satisfying month filled with work anniversaries, happy clients, and wonderfully positive results from our 2020 Employee Satisfaction Survey.
We’d like to first congratulate the following team members who celebrated their work anniversaries in December:
