Blog What Are We Thankful For? Lauren Barber November 22, 2021 Share this article: As we pause and reflect on the past year, we have a lot to be thankful for as a company. We’ve had the pleasure of onboarding a record number of clients, we’ve hired more than 60 new employees, and we’ve even welcomed several (eight!) VidBabies along the way. While we must admit 2021 hasn’t been the easiest year given the circumstances, it’s important to remember “You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain”, as our teammate Conrad says. This Thanksgiving, we reached out to VidCruiter employees and asked them what they’re thankful for. Here are their responses… Sneha R, Senior Client Implementation Manager Each day I am thankful for nights that turned into mornings, friends that turned into family, dreams that turned into reality, and likes that turned into love. Most importantly though, I am thankful for everything today and every day. We have so much to be thankful for. One day a year hardly seems adequate. Remi G, Senior Enterprise Implementation Manager I am grateful for my amazing partner France, our lovely dog Hazel, my wonderful family, great friends, and my health. I am thankful for having the ability to go to work and enjoy what I do, enjoy the people I work with, and be able to interact with amazing clients. Thomas W, Senior Client Success Manager I’m thankful for… My wife and daughter who I’m lucky to spend every day with My fun job at a dynamic, fast-growing company that cares about their employees To live in Canada Nancy C, Senior Client Implementation Manager I am thankful for my beautiful family and knowing that even though they’re grown and on their own, they still like to come for mom snuggles.

I am thankful that he is watching over us, and I strive every day to make him proud. This year, I am also thankful for the wonderful group of people I work with. The VidCruiter family is definitely a welcoming group of people. Brittany C, Client Success Manager My favorite moment of every day is waking up and observing my two magical creations, my sons, who inspire me on a daily basis to be the best person I can be. Children are our teachers and I can honestly say they have been mine. I am my best self now, because of them. They keep me motivated mentally and physically. They remind me to dedicate time to myself each day for self-care so I can show up for them exactly how I should. They are my heart, my soul, and my entire world, the center of my being. Emilie L, Tier 2 Applicant & Client Support I am thankful for all of the great family and friends that I have gained over the years. Being able to work for a great company and have awesome co-workers. Not so much for the snow season though.

Marc V, Client Support Manager I am thankful to be surrounded by so many great people at home and at work who challenge me to become a better version of myself on a daily basis. Conrad C, Client Success Operations As we approach winter, the days are getting shorter and we see the sun around once per week only. It’s also been over a year since I’ve been working on my dinner table. But despite the challenges of living in partial isolation, restricted from traveling to reunite with family and friends, I’m still very grateful for my stimulating job, fun teammates, amazing wife, and incredible rainbow we got a few weeks ago. You can’t have a rainbow without a little rain. Brian A, Technical Support Team Leader I am thankful for my coworkers who make this an amazing place to work. I am thankful for the freedom we have amidst worldwide chaos. Above all, I am thankful for my family and my health. Jessica M, Integration/Report Specialist Most of all, I am thankful that I have a great home, a great boyfriend who is always there for me, and that we get to share our days, working from home with our two crazy fur babies. Daphne R, Customer Success Manager I’m grateful to have been able to go back to my family and friends this year, as I was living abroad for the whole pandemic and wasn’t able to go back. It was great to touch base with them, reconnect and nourish our relationships. I’m also so grateful and happy with my work/life balance; Having found a job where I can feel accomplished every day, learn continually, where I can actually make a difference, and feel part of a work family and once my day ends, for living abroad and enjoying the beauties of life outside of the usual routine and for connecting with nature on a daily basis. Krystal B, Client Success Manager I am thankful for my wonderful husband and children who continue to help me realize how blessed I am each day.
