Last week at Pixo’s last staff meeting of the year, we took time out from the goofy (favorite Slack of the year) and serious (our most memorable client moments) to recognize eight team members for upholding our values throughout the year.

We call these our Core Value Awards, and every year various teams at Pixo select one of their peers to recognize.
