Happy Thanksgiving from EG Workforce Solutions! To celebrate this season of gratefulness, we’re sharing three things you maybe didn’t realize your job made you thankful for. If these things don’t ring true to you, it might be a litmus test it’s time to find something new.

Friendships with Coworkers

Being around your coworkers usually leads to natural bonds forming between you and them since you’re around each other on a daily basis. Sometimes, your most important friendships can come from building relationships with your coworkers.

Besides friendships and social benefits, building relationships with your coworkers leads to more personal success for your own role. You can learn from others as well as teach them what you know. Building strong relationships along company lines is also a great way to become more aligned with the company values.

New Opportunities to Learn and Grow

Your job allows you to learn and grow, both your hard and soft skills. For example, the hard skills you’ll learn might include – how to use specific software systems, manage client accounts, or clean on a professional level, or use tools related to your position.

You’ll also learn soft skills. You’ll gain soft skills including how to interact socially with your coworkers, listen, act in meetings, send professional emails, logical thinking, resourcefulness, decision-making, problem-solving conflict resolution, motivation, work-life balance, collaboration, networking, and staying on task.

The Work You’re Doing

Even if it doesn’t always feel like it, the work you do matters and is valued by others. The work you do in your role helps your coworkers perform their jobs better and helps the company overall. Don’t get hung up thinking what you do doesn’t matter, because it does.

Also, think about how the work you’re doing challenges and excites you. Do you ever get passionate about finding a new or better way to complete your work or processes? Get to take on a new project or responsibilities? These things are all great ways to be thankful for that you might not have considered before.

In this season of gratitude and thankfulness, take some time to think about how your job has given you opportunities to make new friendships, learn and grow, and bring value to your coworkers and company.
