A Note of Thanks
Last Thanksgiving, I kinda put it all out there. This year I didn’t have to. One of our Assistant Project Managers, Joe M., wrote an open letter to the company and sent it to our People Ops Department last week. I am especially touched, as he not only captured the spirit in which the United States was founded, but tied it to the very core of ModSquad. It is even more poignant as he is from our Northern Ireland operations center. This Thanksgiving sentiment is worldwide, not just here in America. He has graciously allowed us to reprint it in full for our annual Thanksgiving Day Blog Post. There is nothing I can add to this without getting too teary myself.
For a while now, I’ve been thinking about writing an open thank-you letter to the company for giving me this career. With Thanksgiving approaching, I feel like this is the best time for it.
My gratitude stems from the fact that I had experienced a long period of illness prior to joining ModSquad. I worried that returning to the stress of a rigid work environment could cause my ailment to recur. Happily, my fears never materialized, because at ModSquad I’ve had the flexibility to earn a living, tend to my health, and fully regain my confidence. I have now been with the company for three years, and I’ve rarely been happier.
When I think about the greatest aspects of American culture, one phrase comes to mind: “Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free.” In the United States I see a country that took in the forgotten people of the world. A country that then defended those people with the affirmation that they had not failed their old countries, but that their old countries failed them. To prove their point, these oft-forgotten women and men built the most powerful nation the world has ever known.
Every country has good and bad aspects to its history, but I wholly admire the founding aspirations of this Republic. More than this, I truly see the best of this wonderful idealism reflected in ModSquad. Here’s a company that proudly offers opportunities to parents, grandparents, people with mobility issues… the list goes on and on. ModSquad knows that people can show true greatness, regardless of the hurdles life throws their way. This is why ModSquad opens its arms to hard-working, talented individuals, offering the chance to work from home, live your life, and build a career. The people at ModSquad have always known that putting success first doesn’t breed happiness, but putting happiness first does breed success.
Success without happiness is, of course, possible; but it is fleeting. However, happiness brings with it a success that is indestructible. That’s why I and thousands of others like me are proud to say, “We are the Mods!”
