Finally we find ourselves at the end of 2020, a year that not everyone wants to remember, but a year with a string of world-changing events that will never be forgotten, a year that teaches us about the value of solidarity and courage, and the power of faith and hope.
A year that reminds us that the only thing remaining unchanged is change, where flexibility and resilience is more important than ever;
A year that demonstrates the magic of modern technologies helping connect people from different countries, cultures and time zones to reach accomplishments. But a virtual meeting room will never replace a rendez-vous in person, we need to feel connected, and we need to connect.
A year that reveals to us the hard times might be the catalyst for creativity and the incubator for patience, self-discipline and self-care. Inspiring our appreciation for communities and teams and gratitude for our families, friends, colleagues and even pets, for being there through tough times.
Here we are, in Shanghai, China—
We believe in professionalism and expertise, and excellence is what we exist for. It is in the ancient Chinese wisdom of “from diligence comes craftsmanship” and “strive until perfection is attained”.
We believe in the right attitude: an attitude of dedication and altruism, an innovative and insightful mind, which brings us closer to the boundaryless information flow that we work for.
And we believe in the human side of technology. Technology is meant to promote the well-being of humanity, drive social progress and serve the greater good of our planet.
2021 is right around the corner, we wish you:
Architect a balanced lifestyle in eating and exercising, work and life.
Protect yourself and your loved ones.
May everyone’s PCR test report stay negative, and every mind and soul stay positive.
Rejoice over the little slices of happiness, give thanks always and celebrate your life.
Again, we wish you happy holidays and a healthy, happy and fruitful new year!
