Thanksgiving just kicked off a holiday season that is likely bringing an onslaught of mixed emotions this year. Being physically isolated from friends and loved ones during a holiday about giving thanks is certainly a strange dynamic.
In a year of grief, loss, and heartache, it’s almost more important than ever to find those anchors that keep us rooted in gratitude and thanks. The guiding light on the darkest days, if you will.
For many, technology has provided a coping mechanism of sorts. Being able to stay socially connected to loved ones through platforms like Zoom, FaceTime, and Google Meets has cultivated connection despite being physically distant. And in a year of drastic uncertainty, technology has become one thing we can rely on.
We’ve seen so many stories emerge in the news about many workplaces transitioning to a fully remote operation. Office spaces and water cooler conversations have gone to the wayside. Now, we take work meetings from the couch with pets in our laps (and sometimes making appearances on Zoom). At Natives, we’ve seen great success in our transition.
As a Natives newbie, I’m thankful for the technology that has allowed me to seamlessly join the Natives team this Fall, despite not being able to meet any of the Natives team in person until very recently. Pre-pandemic it was rare to start a new job without meeting a single co-worker. But, in 2020, this is the new normal.
At Natives, we’re especially thankful to our clients for putting their faith and trust in us. Our desire to propel your brands forward is what keeps us moving, and we simply couldn’t do it without you.
