A Grateful Reflection on Workplace Connections This Thanksgiving


As the season of Thanksgiving is upon us, it’s only fitting to pause and express our deepest gratitude for the pillars of our success—our employees, clients, and valued participants. At BRI, we find ourselves reflecting on the extraordinary contributions of these integral components that form the beating heart of our organization. Join us as we highlight why we are profoundly thankful for our people and extend warm wishes for a joyous Thanksgiving to all.

Thankful for Our Employees

At the core of BRI’s success story are the dedicated individuals who bring passion, talent, and innovation to our workplace every day. Our employees are the driving force behind our achievements, and we are immensely grateful for their unwavering commitment.

This Thanksgiving, our hearts overflow with appreciation for the dedication and resilience our employees consistently demonstrate. Your efforts make our workplace a thriving community, and we are thankful to have such a remarkable team driving our shared mission.

As we celebrate this season of gratitude, let’s take a moment to highlight sentiments from a few of our team leaders, Eric, Casey, and Steve, as they express their thankfulness for the invaluable contributions of some of our teams.

Acknowledging the Guardians: A Tribute to Security Engineers

“Often times the tasks of information security engineers and day-to-day challenges we face do not get high visibility and can become thankless. We forget to acknowledge the guardians who work tirelessly to maintain the security of our systems and services. Today and every day, I am thankful for the contributions of the security engineers that help to maintain the maturity of our organization’s cybersecurity program.” – Eric Bielski, Senior Director of Information Security and Risk Management

Toast to Creativity: A Tribute to the Marketing Team

“As we gather for Thanksgiving, I’m grateful for the amazing BRI team. Each person is a crucial part of our success, and I want to highlight the creativity in our Marketing team. They don’t just think outside the box; they redefine it. Every social media post, blog, and campaign reflects not just our brand but the passion and creativity of each team member. Let’s celebrate our collective creativity, teamwork, and innovation that really elevates our brand. Thank you to our Marketing team for bringing your unique talents to the table. Wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving!” – Casey Burke, Marketing Manager
