While 2021 far from brought us “back to normal,” it did bring us to a “new normal.” Signing off last year, vaccines were a glimmer of hope on the horizon. Now, they’ve helped us see family, friends, and coworkers again for the first time in over a year.
As soon as we safely could, KDG opened our office to vaccinated employees. Stepping back to our desks, with calendars and to-do lists (and, yes, even some snacks) left over from March 2020 was like stepping into a living history museum stuck in time. While some employees did choose to return, by summer, we made the leap to a permanently hybrid workforce. This shift improved our flexibility, enhanced our growth (more on that below!), and made top talent more accessible than ever. And we’re not alone.
With new teams and new talent, we embarked on a series of exciting and challenging projects with clients from coast-to-coast. We partnered with top-tier private universities, impressive start-ups, leading international manufacturers, and inspiring nonprofits. And if 2021 has shown us anything, it is that these new partnerships are here to stay. We celebrated countless anniversaries with legacy clients this year, from 1 to 3 to 5 to even 10 years working together. We look forward to celebrating these milestones next year and every year.
Join us as we take a quick look back at all of the ways KDG, our employees, and our partners like you helped us make 2021 a year to remember.
