Looking back on 2021 | A year in review

2021 was a year of settling into “the new normal” where businesses found novel or unfamiliar ways of supporting their customers and extended compassion and understanding to their employees throughout the highs and lows experienced across the world. On a high note, Harris returned to pre-pandemic levels of acquisitive growth by welcoming twenty-two businesses across five countries.
