ARDX founder Angela Reddix wanted to show her employees how much she appreciated them. So for the Norfolk company’s holiday party, she asked Rubin Communications Group to produce a video to showcase how well the firm’s 80 employees meet their daily mission: help the US Department of Health and Human Services explain complex healthcare regulations to health insurance companies, which then have to make the laws understandable to millions of consumers.
