Cygnet Scores a Century in Blood Donation

106 units of blood
were donated voluntarily by Cygnet employees at the annual blood donation camp organized by Prathama Blood Center.

This was the largest number achieved in the last 3 years that Cygnet has organized this camp in its premises. The exhuberant Managing Director, Niraj responded, " My heartfelt thanks for the amazing tremendous response to the Blood Donation camp today. I appreciate it a lot and lack words to describe my gratitude to you all."

Prathama's team leader for event, Mr Ashish Jadhav said,"It is difficult to procure blood during the holiday season since people are travelling or not available. Therefore, receiving such a large number of blood units from Cygnet Infotech is highly appreciated. We look forward to an even higher number in future."

As a company, Cygnet is committed to its CSR (corporate social responsibility) initiatives and encourages all employees to be a part of it. It contributes to various causes and blood donation has been one of the regular events on Cygnet premises each year. 

Three cheers to all the donors and all those who wished to donate but missed!

A Response from Facebook:

Theme & Project Based Rangoli Competition on Diwali 2012

When Diwali, the festival of light was looming, it was a time of celebration at Cygnet. This year Cygnet decided to celebrate the festival with the employees in a different and innovative way. The celebration was split up into many activities and events based on themes which included a traditional day celebration, workspace decoration competition and rangoli competition.

Since Rangoli is considered as a  traditional symbol of Diwali, many employees were quite enthusiastic in showing their flair and creativity in Rangoli competition. But with an idea to promote innovation and ascertain  conceptualization of employees, Cygnet announced a project and theme based Rangoli competition wherein participants were supposed to highlight either a project or technical aspect in their Rangoli or demonstrate a process or concept in the design.

Beside the Rangoli Competition, employees also excitedly participated in the Workspace Decoration Competition wherein they decorated their work areas with different stuff depicting their technical projects and processes.

On the whole, employees enjoyed trying their hands in such competitions and exploring each other's creativity.
