2020 Retrospective: Focusing on the Positives

Let’s be real, we all have mixed feelings about this past year. Esker and our hardworking staff members certainly weren’t exempt from experiencing the economic, social and political issues the world has seen in 2020, but just for the next few minutes, let’s take a break from our regularly scheduled doom scrolling and highlight some of the positives. Because for Esker, 2020 still brought a lot of things to celebrate.
