When was the last time you thanked your Chicago court reporter? All too often, life gets in the way of remembering to say thank you. We’re busy getting to court or depositions. We’re working long hours only to go home to family obligations. We’re too tied to technology instead of the people who are right in front of us. I don’t say that to make you feel bad, only as a reminder to myself and you about the importance of having an attitude of gratitude.
From the home office
At Depo International, we pride ourselves on our focus on our court reporters and attorneys. Without you, we wouldn’t be who we are. If you visit our corporate website, you will see we’ve been recognized for a number of accomplishments, including being a certified women-owned business, and for our gratitude initiative. We’ve been travelling the country telling people about how gratitude can change their lives and their business.
Science of Gratitude
Researchers have been studying the impact of gratitude on overall health and wellness. They’ve found that when we’re focused on what’s going well in our lives, we’re happier. When we focus on what’s wrong, our lives are filled with stress.
What would happen if we focused on gratitude in the workplace?
- Improved employee morale
- Higher productivity
- Focus on solutions, not problems
- Less absenteeism
We know you appreciate the work our team does for you but what would it be like if you took time to thank your Chicago court reporter? If you’re not sure where to start, here are some ideas:
- Call and say thank you. (I like to call this using our phones for good.)
- Send a handwritten note. It only takes a couple minutes and will be greatly appreciated.
- Say thanks with a gift. We love chocolate but if you’re not sure what your court reporter likes, try an edible arrangement, flowers, or balloons.
Researchers find that when you have an attitude of gratitude, you also become more willing to help others. So I guess you could say that gratitude is contagious! I hope you catch or share a thank you today. If we each did our part, we could change our families, workplaces, and businesses.
