Very rarely do companies extend Christmas celebrations beyond employees. But, committed to being the employer of choice, IBEX Global Jamaica stepped off the beaten path and hosted more than 250 children of its employees last December.

The little ones, between ages two and 12, were treated to cake, ice cream, popcorn, hot dogs, cotton candy, snow cones, bounceabout, and trampoline. And to top it all off, there was Santa waiting by the company's Christmas tree with presents for everyone.

IBEX Global Jamaica has been getting much media attention since its official launch last October, where CEO Bob Dechant promised Prime Minister Andrew Holness 5,000 jobs. The company, headed locally by BPO veteran Dalgleish Joseph, has been making waves with its employee-centric approach marked by weekly theme days, free lunch for employees, and engagement activities that make work fun.
