“Happy Hour is the Best Hour”

Mark your calendar! Our last virtual happy hour was a success as we learned how to make a mango/habanero pico de gallo in a cooking class and people want more. For that reason, you will receive $200 MXN pesos in your next paycheck. We would like for you to use this money to buy yourself a drink, meal, snack of your choice, 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, March 19th, 2021.

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

CONGRATULATIONS Aura on earning the Órale Award! On behalf of People Thurst’s management, We would like to extend our appreciation for the amazing work done by you. The endless hours that you have spent working on this company, and the professionalism that you have shown has impressed the entire team immensely.

We are extremely grateful that you are part of the People Thrust family.  

Our family wouldn’t be the same without you!

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!

Spotlight of the Month:

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 Carlos Monterrosa as MEM for the month of March.

What motivates you to wake up every day?
