Indeed, for those of you who didn’t know, Planbox is Canadian! We’ll be taking an extended weekend off to celebrate things we were thankful for this year, so our offices will be closed on Monday October 8. If you need to speak to us, we'll be back on Tuesday.
On this note, we’d like to take this occasion to share with you 3 things Planbox has been grateful for this year. Shawn Achor, a Harvard-trained researcher and an expert in happiness and human potential, suggested in his book, The Happiness Advantage
, that making a 3-item gratitude list
regularly will help lead to more happiness and optimism in the long-term. It's extremely beneficial for building team spirit. You should give it a try too! (Maybe during your regular iteration review meetings - wink!)
In 2012, we, at Planbox, are sincerely grateful for:
1. Having our awesome customers
We say it often, but we will never be able to say it enough. We are very thankful and proud to have customers, from blooming startups to established big organizations, across various industries.Your feedback is always appreciated, and it has helped us grow so much. We make it a top priority to be there for you when you need us, so that we can make Planbox even better for you.

2. Receiving recognition in the press and winning awards
We are sincerely thankful towards those who gave Planbox the opportunity to shine. It is an absolute honor to have won some awards this year. We promise to keep doing our best!
3. Building an incredible team
When you think about it, you can easily spend 40+ hours every week with co-workers. We’re lucky to have built a nice cozy family at Planbox. This year, we even welcomed some new members to join the adventure. Guys and girls, thank you for your hard work! Planbox wouldn’t be what it is without you!
Even more excitement
We are also very excited for shiny new beginnings ahead of us. To give you a sneak preview, we’ll be changing our website very very soon, and our headquarters are moving to a bigger office!
Planbox wishes you a wonderful Canadian Thanksgiving!
