Though this year has been full of uncertainties due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s also made a lot of people realize that there are many things to be grateful for. For example, leaders have become more grateful for their hard working employees, and have grown a newfound respect for those employees who are working double time helping their kids with school while also juggling work.
In honor of Thanksgiving being right around the corner, we wanted to take the time out to express some of the things that COVID-19 has made us more grateful for this year. Our hope is that you too, will be reminded that even though the coronavirus has changed the way we do a lot of things, it can’t change the fact that there is so much to be grateful for in the world.
