One of Anabas’ main focuses for 2020 is employee physical, mental and emotional wellbeing and we have been working on developing a new employee welfare package for some time. It was critical that we accelerated the go-live to support our staff when they need it most.

"My sincerest thanks go to all our staff who have worked tirelessly to help us and our clients to remain safe and healthy during this time. The support they have all shown in these last couple of weeks is fantastic and I couldn’t be more proud of the entire Anabas Family.
