We’re pleased to announce that Encompass has been awarded Gold in the Non-Broadcast / Craft-Motion Graphics category by the 39th Annual 2018 Telly Awards for our video Communications Across Generations. The video explores how learning and communication styles are impacted by the era in which people grow up, as well as other factors that influence their perspectives. Throughout, the film provides tips to improve collaboration across generations.
