(SQCCT) Creativity in Enhancing Internal Communication
Since its establishment in March 2022, the Creative Center Team (SQCCT) has organized activities and events to enhance employees’ internal communication. The goal is to provide them with a knowledge and skill-building experience that uplifts their competencies in the work environment, especially with recent graduates eager to contribute their scientific and life experiences and aspiring for broader opportunities for learning and contribution. Here are some highlights of what the team has accomplished during this period:

The competition received widespread celebration and acceptance, successfully educating employees in various scientific fields.
