What can businesses expect from 2021 as we usher in a new Presidential administration and begin to emerge from the global pandemic?
There has probably never been as much collective hope as when the world rang in 2021 – and with good reason. As of Jan 2021, there are two approved COVID-19 vaccines in the US and three more in Phase 3 clinical trials.
