The implementation of programmes was successful and also challenging; lessons were learned were fed into the organisation by adjusting our tools and strategies. HR&S has 2020 strengthened our on-line communication with our partners. We have strengthened the relationship between HR&S and Action10 by streamlining. As a conclusion from 2020, HR&S is content with what we are doing and how we are doing it. The frame of operations is laid down and the aim from now on is scaling.
Ahead, in 2021, will HR&S empower the work with customer surveys. The goal is to scale by attracting more researchers, innovators, social entrepreneurs, and supporters that agree with our ambition and core-values. HR&S will also empower the work with the Strategy for Change concept. More, in 2021 will Action10 create its own crowd-funding platform.
