What are some social events your company does?

The XSELLies is the must-attend event of the year! Think of a collab between high school yearbook superlatives, the Dundies, and inside jokes between coworkers - all on a red carpet event. With drinks in hand and music blaring, this is truly a time to celebrate our wins together as a company and appreciate all the people who got us to this spot!
