HRCap Reflects on Thanksgiving Weekend

Written by HRCap, Inc.

Importance of Giving Thanks

Giving thanks is an overlooked activity that can increase our level of happiness. A 2022 OnePoll survey shows that 65% of respondents who say they are “very happy” on a daily basis are also more likely to “always” give thanks. Our degree of happiness is strongly associated with how much gratitude we have. As a result, gratitude helps us to enjoy our experiences, improve our health, and build stronger relationships.

To foster a heart of gratitude, in light of the Thanksgiving holiday, we asked our employees what they were thankful for this year.

What HRCap Employees Are Thankful for This Year

Family, Friends, Coworkers

This year I am thankful for the bonds I have strengthened and created and the support they constantly provide me. After graduating, I opened a new, yet difficult, chapter with graduate school and a new job. Without my support system, I wouldn’t have been able to trek this far.

I am thankful for being able to spend the holidays with my family. Prior to the pandemic, this was something that I took for granted since I was caught up in my own life. Over the past two years, I learned that things could change in the blink of an eye, and time was also limited. Therefore, it is important to take advantage of my time with my family, especially seeing my nephews grow up.

I’m very thankful for my parents and teammates who have supported me. When I found myself confused and exhausted, they were always there for me and encouraged me to step up and get myself back together. Without them, I wouldn’t have been able to get through all the hardships.

I'm grateful for my family and my teammates who supported me. As someone who just graduated and came into a professional setting, I find myself being confused about projects I never had a chance to work on in school. But my family and teammates continued supporting me as much as possible.

This year I am thankful for God’s providence. Whether it was providing me with a good church community, friends that truly care, or a new job.

Grateful for my family, especially my parents, and I am grateful for a roof over my head that keeps me safe and warm.

I am thankful for my dog who has made my family happier and healthier since adopting him at the beginning of this month.


I am thankful that I could stay healthy without any health complications, such as catching COVID-19 or the cold.

I am thankful that my daughter has not had any serious illness and has grown healthy. Even as she grows older and we have disagreements, I hope that she continues to grow healthy and happy as she is now.

I am blessed for the reminder to take better care of my health (physical, mental, emotional).


I’m incredibly thankful for being with a company that provides an environment for learning. With HRCap being the first company I am working at for my career, I understand that a lot of organizations can’t (or don’t) provide the right environment to foster continuous learning and growth. With that and the support of my partner, I’m grateful to be able to establish the next step in my career and life.

I am grateful for the support of team members along with the opportunity to learn and grow here at HRCap constantly.

I am thankful for getting to work at HRCap and for learning a lot already.

I am so proud of how HRCap is becoming a more empathetic and inclusive organization. I am blessed for the opportunity to lead our team, to represent our candidates, serve our clients, and contribute to the greater Asian American community and the larger HR industry.
