With so much going on this year, from COVID-19 to natural disasters, life has felt uneasy. Many of us are working from home while other essential employees are staying as safe as possible doing necessary work needed for everyone. Finding reasons to feel thankful this year may seem difficult, but giving thanks and recognizing what you have can make you appreciate it even more.
Here are our favorite reasons to be thankful for your job:
- Co-workers: At work, co-workers are often what keeps us going. Having a good set of people to work with can make the day go by faster and make you excited about going into work the next day. You’ll always have at least one thing in common with your co-workers, you work for the same company, even if you don’t do the same job.
- Workplace Culture: A good company culture is something many businesses strive for, having a good culture can improve employee retention, employee satisfaction, and productivity. Working for a company with a good culture is certainly something to be thankful for as you get to reap the benefits of a company that cares about its employees and wants to ensure your happiness and success.
- Benefits: Whether your company offers a 401K or a free gym membership, benefits are something to be thankful for. They give an extra push and incentive to work for a company that doesn’t just include pay. Often, many companies offer healthcare which can be a very important necessity to ensure your own health is good and these benefits can often help you financially in the instance of an illness.
- Learning Opportunities: No matter what position you’re in, you’re learning a new set of skills that you probably didn’t previously have. Jobs allow us to grow and learn something new almost everyday. Building upon your existing skills allows you to advance in your career goals and potentially climb the career ladder, if that’s what you’re looking to do.
- The Ability to Work: With so many things happening this year, and unemployment rates skyrocketing due to the pandemic, now is a great time to just be thankful for your job overall.
Now more than ever is a great time to take a moment to reflect on being thankful for your job as well as whatever else in your life makes you feel fulfilled.
