I feel like we all need a little space this time of year to breathe, reflect and spend time with family and friends.” says Josh, “I’m incredibly grateful and proud of my team—they deserve to be recognized for the hard work they’ve put in under extraordinary circumstances. The “Thanksgiving Pause”—a week off in the midst of one of our busiest seasons—is one small thing that I can do to let my team and our community know that we value and care for our employees. ”
