Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays of the year because family and friends slow down, gather around the table, and simply give each other the gift of our time. Today, our team is hopping on the blog to each share what we’re grateful for this year.

From Carol: We oftentimes forget to slow down to celebrate and show gratitude and I’m thankful that one of our team members gently reminded us of this overlooked, but necessary opportunity to give thanks. I am incredibly thankful for our clients, their passion to solve problems and desire to support local, US-based businesses. Our clients have given us the opportunity to create jobs and hire a team that continually pushes themselves to be better at what they do. I’m also thankful for the community support we’ve had since the very beginning, from local groups, universities and colleagues to our families that support us every minute of the day. We’ve been very blessed as a company and my hope is that we continue to help as many people as possible solve problems with the thing we do best, software.

From Jay: I’m grateful for the opportunity to build a company like Oak City Labs.  We are fortunate to work with clients that are solving problems in their communities and creating a better world. It has been extraordinary to watch our team grow and continually overcome each new challenge we face by working together toward our common goal. As we plan for the future, I’m excited to find ways where we can give directly back to our community and support causes that are important to the Oak City Labs team.

From Cory: I am thankful to work with a group of individuals who care so much about the work we do. It has been a humbling experience watching our clients doing great things with the products we help them build. Whether in the office or not, I am pushed to be the best developer and person I can be, and I am thankful for this opportunity to learn and grow with my amazing team.

From Taylor: I am thankful to work somewhere where everyone’s opinions are valued. I am thankful that we challenge each other to continue to learn new skills and push ourselves out of our comfort zones.

From Trevor: I’m thankful to have talented and passionate co-workers who honestly care about delivering quality solutions to our customers. I’m also thankful for great customers who invest their trust in our company’s abilities to bring their visions to life.

From Ashlee: In thinking back over the past year, I’m so thankful to be a part of the Oak City Labs team. I’m grateful for a company that values and prioritizes our clients and their satisfaction – a company culture that works not only to meet our clients’ expectations but to exceed them! I’m thankful to work alongside a group of folks that are always improving, always learning, and always taking the next step forward. I’m excited about what’s ahead for Oak City Labs within our team, the company and our community!
