A small surprise for 3a Mummies

It was a busy afternoon for 3a Malta’s HR Director Christian Vella today, as he drove all the way from east to west to south to north of the island delivering a bouquet of flowers to the eleven super mummies or mummies-to-be at 3a Malta!   Happy Mother’s Day to all!

Milestone Work Anniversaries

The disruption that Covid-19 brought to the year 2020 did not stop 3a Malta from celebrating important milestone work anniversaries of seven of its long-serving employees. 

Claire Muscat, Emanuela Bugeja, Francesca Galea and Dorianne Giordmaina celebrated their fifth anniversary with the firm, having joined throughout 2015. 

Charmaine Vassallo Fenech, Alison Calvert and Tonio Cuschieri celebrated their tenth anniversary, having joined in 2010. 

Due to the suspension of social activities because of the pandemic, commemorative awards were instead distributed by the company directors to the awardees at their residence during the Christmas period. 

3a Malta heartfeltly congratulates these employees, thanking them for their loyal service, and looks forward to many more years working together.
