“Happy Hour is the Best Hour”

Mark your calendar! Our last virtual happy hour was a success and people want more. For that reason, you will receive an extra $10 USD (~$22 MXN) in your next paycheck (between December 1st-10th.)  We would like for you to use this money to buy yourself a drink, meal, snack of your choice, or even holiday 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!

If you missed the last one, here’s your chance to join us and learn a bit more about other team members.  Our next happy hour is on Friday, December 11, 2020.

We look forward to virtually hanging out with you! Expect an invitation from Natalia with more details.  

Share away!

Órale Award:

Congratulations Susana on earning the Órale Award!

As part of the Talent Sourcing Team, you have many responsibilities. It was brought to our attention that you make our new collaborators feel welcomed by paying attention to all of their needs even beyond the onboarding process while displaying great communication skills and thoughtfulness among other positive attributes. While that is not part of your job description you took the time and helped the new collaborators without being asked. You went above and beyond!

Your actions represented People Thrust’s core values such as Customer Focus, Collaboration, and Integrity.Your hard work positively impacted us and those around you, as you are a great example of why we are #MoreThanIT because we care about people beyond their jobs. It only goes to show how dedicated you are in wanting to achieve the best for a collaborator’s experience at People Thrust.

What is the Órale Award and why People Thrust does it?

At People Thrust we like to practice gratitude and recognition. This award is given to People Thrust’s collaborators when they have done something that goes above and beyond while representing People Thrust among peers, clients, and others. We recognize people that have represented our mission, vision, and/or core values one way or another. As a company, we are grateful to have such individuals in our team. Want to learn more?

Do you have someone you would like to nominate?  If so, you can nominate them here!

It’s Fun to Give Back!

We believe in the power of giving back! Here are few opportunities of giving back:

Having a volunteer day of your choice with an organization/ non profit. Volunteering goes hand-in-hand with our core values and allows us to be of service. When we volunteer for a cause that is close to our heart, we naturally become happy; and studies show that when we are happy, we are more productive in the workplace.

With the People Thrust matching contribution program, you guys have the opportunity to donate to a nonprofit organization with a dollar-for-dollar match that amplifies your impact. We promote the act of giving by doubling donations to a cause that is near and dear to our collective heart.

If you wish to be part of a volunteer date or donate (matching contribution) Email Natalia for more details.
