"In July 2020, we started a handover article in hotelkit, called “Well done pt. 2″. During the first lockdown, we continued to strive for team cohesion and created the handover “Stronger together”. In this handover, we kept each other informed about what was going on in everyone’s private lives. It helped us to stay in touch even whilst staying at home due to the pandemic. Shortly afterwards, hotelkit Moments was launched and suddenly we had the perfect tool at our disposal to share special experiences with the whole team."
