This year forced everyone to review the status quo and quickly adapt to something we had no real comprehension of. A core focus of ours throughout 2020 was to ensure that clients felt supported during a difficult time. On that note, we thought it made sense to extend that support to those who need it most across this festive season. We hand over to Awin COO Adam Ross who personally thanks clients for their continued partnership throughout 2020 and touches upon our global initiative.  

This year has forged many new learnings and shown how we all provide pillars of strength and solidarity within our communities when needed the most. With that said, we felt it appropriate to invest our holiday budget into rebuilding communities where Awin offices are. While a lot of work is still required, we’re delighted to support the cause in any way that we can. See an overview of local charities donated to below with hyperlinks for if you’d like to donate. 

We want to express our gratitude for another successful year. Please stay safe and well this holiday season.
