2020 was a year of twists and turns. Despite it all, however, there were still nuggets of joy and pride here at Method. Today, we share a recap of our top 2020 moments — enjoy!
5 feel-good Method moments
1. Empowering our customers to operate remotely
During 2020, the resiliency and innovation we saw our small business customers demonstrate was impressive to say the least. As they pivoted and navigated uncharted waters, we felt lucky to be the ones enabling them to work remotely.
2. The outpour of support for small businesses
Another top moment for us in 2020 was the spotlight small businesses gained. Placed front and center on the world stage, communities everywhere rallied behind their local entrepreneurs and businesses.
3. Expanding the Method team
Although the pandemic has been challenging for most small businesses, the digital-first approach that many of our customers took allowed them to not only survive but also grow.
As a result, we added 16 new Methoders to our team, so that every one of our customers got the support they needed during this difficult year.
Whether that was by providing guidance on topics like PPP loan forgiveness or improving the accessibility standards of the Method platform, this work kept us busy. Better yet, it got us recognized.
4. Being honoured with two best-in-class awards
These achievements, however, are not all ours to claim. We have to thank our awesome customers and Method:Partners for helping us get this far.
A special shout out goes to this year’s Method:Partner award winners for their contributions to the Method community, including:
- Matt Raiser of SaaSphalt
- Paulette Dreher of SBS Associates
- Gary Hawton of Home Watch IT
- Annie Kendrick of Kendrick Business Services
- Sharon McNeal of Biz 4 the Rest of Us
Committed to helping small businesses succeed with technology that works the way they do, there are no limits to what this awesome group can accomplish together in 2021!
5. The relaunch of Method:Gives
With so much to be thankful for, this year prompted Methoders to reflect on how we could share our good fortune with others.
The result was the relaunch of Method:Gives — a company-wide initiative dedicated to donating 1% of our revenue growth to charity. Below are a few highlights from the program:
- $3,371 contribution made to Movember
- A commitment to increase equality within and outside the office
- 50+ books donated to The Children’s Book Bank
Looking forward to 2021, Method:Gives is something the team is eager to keep going!
In the meantime, we plan to take all that we learned in 2020 and use it to make next year our best one yet.
