The Adaptiv Advantage Vol. 5
Are we there yet?2020 has been a year to forget in so many ways. But throughout it, we’ve learned the value of loyalty, friendship, consistency and working smarter! After planning and cancelling our 10th birthday party several times, we decided it was simply enough that we and our clients are all thriving. Maybe we’ll get to celebrate together (in some way, shape or form) in 2021.
This month we’ve got a quick round-up of content we think you might enjoy, and to help you get to know us better, we’ve profiled two of our staff members.
Like most technology businesses, we are always looking for great people to add to our team, so shout out if there’s anyone you’d like to recommend or point them to our careers page.
