The last few years have tested us all and now is a great time to reflect and be more thankful for the positive things in our lives from personal to professional. The Thanksgiving holiday is a great time to take a moment to reflect on what you can be thankful for at work.
Here are a few things to consider and get you feeling thankful:
- 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.
Even when things get tough as we head into the busy season, there are still ways you can take a moment to appreciate what you have. After all, workers are what keeps the world going around, from healthcare to teachers, delivery workers, and every other position in between there is always something to be thankful for in work, and we are thankful for your essential position that keeps everything running smoothly.
