In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we wanted to share a few snapshots of things around the office that we’re thankful for. Starting in the upper left and moving clockwise:
- 10 fingers: Working with online courses and programs means we primarily communicate via email, web chat, phone and our website. Working appendages (while not necessary for job success) come in pretty handy around here!
- Coffee: We are open Monday-Friday from 7AM to 9PM…do we need to say more?
- Furry friends: Ok, so not exactly furry friends. It’s what they represent – tokens of the many fun and friendly relationships we create through our daily work.
- A good chocolate stash: Since the men in our office are so outnumbered by all the wonderful women they get to work with, we like to remind them that it’s just good sense to have chocolate readily available. Stashes can be found around every corner.
Of course, we’re also thankful for our jobs, which give us the opportunity to serve so many groups of people through Minnesota Online and our other partners. And if asked, any of our staff would have a list of things outside of work that they’re thankful for. We sincerely hope you can say the same.
Note: Our offices will be closed Thursday and Friday for the holiday. Staff will be back in the office Saturday, November 24 at 10AM.
