Thanksgiving 2020: A Lot to be Thankful For
From our beginnings as a company of less than 50 people, we have celebrated Thanksgiving together at Greenphire. The company supplies the turkeys, and employees bring a wide variety of their family’s traditional fare. It’s always a blast! (Check out these pictures and perspectives of Thanksgiving past in 2019, 2018).
Since we’ve largely been working remotely since March, we were unable to have our traditional Thanksgiving feast together. However, our company culture remains strong and thanks to our incredible HR team, we were able to pivot and host a virtual get together of the Greenphire Phamily to celebrate our favorite tradition, with a new twist.
Last week we invited Chef and Food Network personality Robin Miller to lead us through a cooking extravaganza in preparation for Thanksgiving. We enjoyed spending time together, learning new tips and sharing laughs.
Another part of our Greenphire tradition is reflecting back and sharing what we are thankful for. Personally, I am thankful for my family, health and this incredible Greenphire team.
When we asked our Greenphire phamily, the notion of good health was top of mind for many of our colleagues.
In their words, here’s what some of our teammates are thankful for this year:
Faisal Shahzad, Relationship Manager, UK
There are lots of things that I am thankful for but particular this year when it has been very challenging for everyone, I am thankful for the fact that everyone around me is safe and I am fortunate enough to be able to provide for my family having a stable job when people across the globe are strained mentally, financially and physically due to the pandemic.

Amy Sitnick, Vice President, Marketing
And last but not least,

Health and a strong internet connection
In all, Thanksgiving may look different this year, but it’s no less special. Perhaps it’s even more special.
We wish all of you – our clients, connections and colleagues, a very safe and festive Thanksgiving holiday.
