The end of one year and the start of another seems to inspire us to reflect on the lessons we have learned. 2020 has been a challenging year marked by historical events and unforeseen changes to both our work and personal lives; it has also been a year of learning for all of us at BCD, as a team and at an individual level.
“It’s times such as what we all have experienced, that identify who we are as people and as a company” says BCD CEO Jeff Burgess. Our BCD team members found innovative ways to help our customers and partners react to the business challenges brought on by 2020. This resiliency and work ethic will help fuel BCD’s positive outlook for 2021.
“I am excited about all of the opportunities that 2021 will bring,” said BCD Human Resources Director Susan Komarchuk. “BCD International is built on five principles: Proactivity, Integrity, Passion, Accountability, and Humility. It is a privilege to work with others who are as impassioned with our core principles and who make it pleasurable to come to work every day. The principals are entwined in everything we do both internally and externally.”
Adapting to the “new normal” has been demanding, but BCD has risen to the challenge and embraced the change. BCD is excited to see how work culture continues to adapt. VP of Sales Jason Glover comments, “With 2020 in the rearview, 2021 looks to be unlike any other. Virtual meetings are here to stay, business will forever be conducted differently. Online meetings have opened up many markets that we may not have been able to penetrate pre-2020. I believe we are working longer hours, and in general, are more focused on our hybrid of work/home life that has now completely become intertwined. I look forward to our continued global growth and to personally not take things for granted. I also really look forward to the days that I can be on the ‘road’ again to meet clients and have forward-facing customer meetings.”
Although the challenges of 2020 follow us all into the new year, we are grateful for the partnerships and support we have gained throughout this journey and look forward to an exciting 2021.
Thank you all for your continued support.
