Bank staff goes carolling
For the second successive year, Governor of the Central Bank Dr DeLisle Worrell and more than two dozen staff members spent Christmas Eve carolling bank staff as well as shoppers and people in the environs of the Tom Adams Financial Centre, Bridgetown.
Decked out in their Christmas hats and brightly-coloured outfits, some beating cymbals, the staffers went up and down the stairwells of the eight floors to bring cheer to the ‘scrooges’ who opted to remain at their desks “counting the last pennies”.
On the outside, several busy shoppers paused in their rush to grab last-minute items in Town to soak in the sweet singing.Worrell said the carolling was what the Central Bank was all about – people.
“The key to success in management or economic affairs is touching people,” he said. “Trust and respect come from interacting with people and this will maintain that trust and respect which our staff hold for each other and the mutual attitude towards the public.”
The governor wished all Barbadians a merry Christmas and urged them to work together to deal with the challenges in 2011.
