Looking Back: GLOBO's 2020 Year in Review

[fa icon="calendar'] Dec 21, 2020 9:00:00 AM / by GLOBO

GLOBO's 2020 Year in Review

At GLOBO, we believe the future is empathetic.

2020 underscored that vision.

2020 required the best from us under challenging circumstances. This year, GLOBO employees showed resilience, empathy, and innovative thinking -- all to make sure that limited English speakers retained the ability to communicate, even as the world changed. As we look back at the year we’ve had, we can’t help but be grateful.

 

Grateful for our customers, who trust us with providing critical services that enable them to communicate with the limited-English speaking population. 

Grateful for our employees, who gracefully and expertly handled a company-wide transition to remote work.

Grateful to our community of linguists, who provide an incredibly skilled service 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. 

 

As the clock ticks closer to 2021, we’re looking back at the wins we had this year that reminded us to be grateful, even in the most challenging of times.

 

This year at GLOBO, we:
