Saying thanks

thanksgiving free to useThanksgiving is a good time to think about the things we are thankful for in our professional lives, as well as at home. When I look back on almost three years with the MnSCU system I’m grateful for engaging and challenging work and the chance to partner with a wonderful group of colleagues every day.

For this week’s HR newsletter, our associate vice chancellor invited the team to submit thank-you notes to our HR colleagues. Many individuals took the chance to thank each other for specific and tangible contributions over the past year.  It also provided a too-rare opportunity for teams to thank other teams for their collaboration and support.

Who are the people that you are thankful for?  How can you express your gratitude? How can you create opportunities for your team members to thank each other?
