Giving thanks goes a long way toward building organizational "bounce-back", employee engagement, loyalty, and community at work. There was a time Haley Scott DeMaria wasn’t sure she’d be graduating from Notre Dame back in 1992, much less speaking to future graduates at her alma mater about the importance of living a life of gratitude.
