Birthdays

You can wish your People Thrust’s family a happy birthday by using Google Chat or writing them an email:

Congratulations!

Times goes by fast when you are having a good time 🙂 Congratulations to the following collaborators on their 1-Year Anniversary with People Thrust:

Thanks for being part of the People Thrust’s family, we are grateful for you!

Welcome New Family Members

Take a moment to say “Hi!” and “Welcome to the team!”

“Happy Hour is the Best Hour”

We want to connect with you…we miss all of you and also want to get to know the new family members. For that reason, you will receive an extra $10 USD (~$220 MXN) in your next paycheck.  We would like for you to use this money to buy yourself a drink, meal, snack of your choice, or even props, so you can share it with us at the next virtual happy hour. Pets and children are welcome to join in too…the more the merrier!

While it’s not a requirement to be part of the next happy hour, we encourage you to be part of it and have some fun with it! In the next few days, look for an email from Natalia (nati.cebollero@peoplethrust.com) letting you know the date and time of the next happy hour.

Spotlight of the Month

Jose Antonio Isas (Tony)

People Thrust values the talent of our collaborators.  We believe in continually developing and growing as individuals and professionals.  What better way to promote our talented and amazing collaborators, than to feature someone new every month!  This will give you the opportunity to learn about them, connect in ways you maybe didn’t know you shared similarities, and build relationships within our team beyond just our jobs!  Since we like “catchy” names, we decided to call this spotlight MEM – Man Empowerment Monday and WEW – Women Empowerment Wednesday.  Basically, every month, our Director of Culture will interview one man or woman within People Thrust and share their story in our newsletter.  

This month we are featuring Tony as our MEM for the month of August!

Niche Aim

How long have you been working with People Thrust?

I have been working with People Thrust since August 2019.

If you could be a car, what car would you be and why?

I would be a Tesla because it is a car with advanced technology such as artificial intelligence.

What do you like to do when you aren’t working? (hobbies)

I like to play video games and rock climbing.

What is a tradition you have and why?

I like to celebrate Christmas with my family and on New Year’s Eve, we have a ritual of walking outside with our suitcases. The reasoning behind this is because it is supposed to bring good luck and trips for the new year.

If you could have dinner with anyone (dead or alive) who it would be, and why?

I would like to have dinner with Elon Musk, he is someone I’m intrigued about because of all the things he has created.

What motivates you to wake up every day?

What motivates me to wake up every day is knowing I’m making advancements at work and in my personal life.

What is a moment in your career and life you’re most proud of?

When I finished a nine-month course about autonomous cars.

What do you do when you are feeling deflated?

I meditate or practice yoga such as vinyasa and ashtanga.

What do you do to give back or pay it forward? Think about social impact. If you don’t currently do something, what is something you would like to do in the future?

I recycle and a group of us, rock climbers, go to communities that are in need, and give blankets during wintertime.

Fun fact about you? Share something that nobody would guess about you.

I learned how to juggle in high school.

Question from the previous MEM/WEW? “Mention 5 things that you loved the most about Latin American culture.

– Christian Garnica “What I love about Latin American culture is that we are loving, our food (my favorite is tacos al pastor), different places in Mexico such as the pyramids, Peña de Bernal, located in San Sebastián Bernal, a small town in the Mexican state of Querétaro and “Danza de Los Voladores (Rito de Los Voladores).

What question do you have for the next MEM/WEW?

What do you enjoy the most about your career?

It’s Fun to Give Back!
