#ThankfulThursday: Week 4

This Thanksgiving, there’s so much to be thankful for. Every Thursday throughout the month of November we’ll be highlighting a few things that make your jobs a little easier, more productive, or even more fun. Have something to add? Join the conversation on social media with the hashtag #ThankfulThursday!


Whether it’s the people you’re related to, the friends you’ve chosen, or the colleagues who share your workplace, today is a perfect opportunity to celebrate the families that surround you, support you, and always have your back.

Good food

No Thanksgiving list would be complete without the holiday centerpiece: the food. Turkey, stuffing and mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce and green bean casserole and pumpkin pie and all the traditional trimmings… or maybe you put your own spin on Thanksgiving dinner. However you celebrate, take a second today to appreciate the good food on your table, the friends and family gathered around it, and the well-deserved break from the chaos of the work week.

Today is also a day to remember the people who might not have a family to celebrate with, as well as those who might not always know where their next meal is coming from. At Elite, it’s our goal to empower you with the knowledge you need to make a difference, not only in your career but also in your communities. To that end, this holiday season we invite you to partner with one of the many charities that exist to meet the needs of those who may not find themselves at a full table this Thanksgiving. Here are a few organizations worth investigating.
