Calgary, AB, July 15, 2021–Xpan Interactive Ltd. (Xpan) celebrated its milestone of 20-years of business in Stampede Style. Entertainment included live music from the Scarecrows and great food from the Dogfather food truck. In honour of a record year of growth, Xpan also shared its best year with its team.
“This has been our best year to date and reflected more than 20-years of tireless work by an outstanding and brilliant team,” said Ron Thiele, President and Founder of Xpan. “It’s an honour to share the success of Xpan’s best year ever with our employees.
“Our staff surpassed the vaccination goal of 70 per cent of people with at least one dose, set by Alberta Public Health. Although we operate as a virtual workplace, this is our way of dipping our toes back in the water, and welcoming everyone safely back to the office with some music, profit sharing, and a lot of fun.”
Since 2001, Xpan has helped organizations around the world build people-centric learning cultures with frictionless technical solutions that transfer knowledge to create fulfilled learners. 2021 has been a continuous growth cycle for Xpan including recent 2020 Horizon Interactive gold awards for collaborations with industry and community partners. A recent highlight included its announcement for a collaboration on a 40-minute interactive course with Straight Talk Advisory and Training (STAAT) to help all Canadians understand how and why the residential schools came about, along with their widespread impacts.
“It’s been a challenging year for all Canadians and we could not have reached this pinnacle milestone without the commitment and dedication of our team of passionate experts,” explained René Thiele, Vice President of Operations for Xpan. “This felt like the right moment to dust off our boots, enjoy live music from the Scarecrows, treat ourselves to some great food, and come together Stampede style to celebrate 20-years of business.”
All public health measures were followed to protect all Xpan employees, clients, and partners. All attendees were informed of the safety measures, so that they knew what to expect, and how they can prevent the spread of illness.
