Our new normal is our old normal
When we checked in three months ago, the team at Axenics was optimistic about the long-term effects of the global pandemic. We remain steadfast in the belief that things are getting better and will continue to improve.
Looking at our work floor, you wouldn’t see much difference today versus a year or two ago. Everyone comes in prepared to take care of business, doing it with smiles and camaraderie.
As many of our spouses and family members work from home – or experience furloughs or worse – our team expresses positivity that coming here provides a sense of normalcy not experienced outside our walls these days.
Yes, we frequently wash our hands, we sanitize and we consistently maintain a high level of cleanliness in the shop (that hasn’t changed). Otherwise, we operate as we have in the past.

Well wishes to your teams at work and at home.
