“Our employees make all the difference. Each year, we savor this opportunity to highlight our people-centered culture and celebrate our employees for making us a great place to work. On the heels of a year unlike any other, I could not be more proud of how we all work together to serve our clients and make the world a better place for all of us. Congratulations to all!”
