If you recall, this time last year we decided that in 2015 we were going to focus on quality over quantity when it came to the amount and type of accolades we set our eyes on. While a large number is always fun to promote, we wanted to look at awards that recognized our international markets, our products, and most importantly, our people. The things that make UANA truly stand out in its industry.
Now that’s not to say we didn’t win anything. We did. In fact, we received over 60 reputable honors that applauded our efforts on multiple fronts.
The most notable honors from the past year however can be broken down in three categories. Products. People. And Culture.
