An Insider's view of Bestow

What are some social events your company does?

Last year Bestow sent everyone a make your own cocktail kit for a company-wide happy hour to help us keep in touch while we work remotely! We also have a slack channel for people who are interested in getting randomly introduced to a new member of the channel each week. It’s a great way to meet new hires and catch up with old pals.
