How We Won
Open communication is a key priority at Absorb, along with off-site social activities. Our headquarters runs an annual lawn bowling event, as well as movie days two or three times a year.

By renting the entire theatre and welcoming both staff and families alike, the team can connect and likewise thank the colleagues that make our company such a great place to work.
