2021 has been another challenging year and we have experienced unprecedented changes. After the lost year of 2020, 2021 brought some sense of normalcy back into our lives. We started getting accustomed to the ‘new normal’ and return-to-office plans were set in motion. The future of work has been reimagined to be “Hybrid”.
At Sunon, we continued our work to better understand the changing consumer needs as they unfolded in the past year and we are looking forward to new opportunities, new challenges, and new possibilities in 2022. As 2021 comes to an end, we are taking a look back at some of our most memorable moments and key highlights over the course of the year.
