Happy Holidays from all of us at Allied!

First, we want to mention that the picture you see of us was taken quickly, so that no one was within 6 feet of anyone else for more than a minute.

As you know, 2020 was different for all of us in so many ways! Our annual Christmas party was proof of that.

While most of our team is still working remotely, we have some staff members who come into the office as needed. We have made sure that those staff members have a safe workplace and socially distanced offices to work in.

Due to COVID-19 and to adhere to gathering and social distancing guidelines, we decided to have our annual Christmas party on Zoom this year.

Like so many others, we were determined to find a fun way to bond safely while still ensuring we could have an opportunity to enjoy our festive Christmas tradition.

And that’s exactly what we did!

We figured out a few entertaining activities we could do via Zoom which included:

  • Playing holiday trivia on Kahoot
  • We had a virtual white elephant exchange- Seeing people’s reactions to their gifts on camera was just as fun as seeing their reactions in person.
  • Everyone was given Door Dash gift cards to treat themselves to a nice meal right from the safety and comfort of their own home this holiday season.

Our Christmas tradition may not have been the same as it has been in the past years, but it was a great opportunity to learn how we could still have fun remotely and come together even in a virtual world.

We can’t thank our employees, clients, and partners enough for doing their best to help us all make 2020 as good as it could be.

We are looking forward to an even better 2021 and look forward to seeing you in person someday soon!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
