Expressing gratitude for each other is a core component of the Terakeet culture. Throughout the year, employees recognize each other on a regular basis in order to show appreciation and give thanks. For example, weekly company-wide meetings serve as a platform for employees to shout each other out and recognize a job well done. But as tradition goes — there’s no better time to say “thank you” than the holiday season. So, we’re highlighting shout outs from those across the company who wish to recognize their colleagues. Read on to see the gratitude and value our team brings to the table.
