Like most companies, the V2Works team celebrated the holiday season a little differently this year. With social distancing still in full force due to COVID-19, we gathered virtually to reminisce, play games, compete in a gingerbread house decorating contest, and feast. Everyone enjoyed the meal of their choice — whether having something scrumptious delivered or making something fancy themselves — then we settled down for a night of laughter and fun. As always, the party was a huge success! We're very grateful to be able to lean on each other's talents every day, so it's nice to take a moment and observe our achievements and congratulate ourselves for another year well done.
Following the "spooky" theme of 2020, the V2Works' Brandgineers celebrated Halloween in Quarantine. While some of us practiced safe social distancing at the office, some of us are still working remotely due to a range of circumstances. The physical distance didn't damper the mood in any way... we still dressed up like we usually do, albeit with an added mask, and continued our usual Halloween traditions. Here are the highlights. 7th Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest Our 7th Annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest transitioned to digital this year, with team members submitting a wide range of artistry.
