Thanksgiving 2020 blog

As most of this year’s holidays, Thanksgiving is completely different for, pretty much, all of us. This year has certainly tested us all. As risk managers, we usually address risks and suggest mitigation strategies in most of our blogs. This year, however, we decided to look at the positives and think about what we are thankful for during this, strange Thanksgiving holiday.

The COVID-19 restrictions caused many folks to cancel their travel plans to see family members and join their loved ones via Zoom instead. While it’s disappointing, there is a silver lining – if any family member brings up an uncomfortable topic you can pause your screen and blame it on technology.

But, seriously, this very challenging year has given all of us a new perspective on all the things we’ve been taking for granted, as well as an understanding of how to be thankful for the simplest things. So, while we are all adjusting to the “new normal” whether it’s Thanksgiving or just everyday life, please take a moment to reflect on the lessons 2020 taught us and what we are grateful for this year.

In the same spirit, we want to share some of the things the ALS Team is thankful for this holiday season:

  • We are thankful for our wonderful team who remains productive and continues to work hard through these challenging times;
  • We are thankful for our wonderful clients for trusting us to support them by addressing all of their risk related issues;
  • We are thankful for our amazing technology platform that allows us to, easily, operate remotely and provide our clients with the level of service to which they have become accustomed.

So, as you can see, we all have lots to be thankful for which is what Thanksgiving is all about after all.

The ALS Group and their families would like to wish all of our clients, friends of the firm and their families a happy, healthy and safe Thanksgiving! May you enjoy a day of great food, laughter, and amazing times with your loved ones!
