The holidays are a special time of the year. Thanksgiving and Christmas bring about opportunities which don’t exist at any other time. For some industries, the holidays can be among the busiest time of the year. This is certainly the case for retail, for instance, and it’s even true for certain law firms. Some law firms see more business during the holidays than at any other season. This is probably the case with many DUI law firms, as DUI lawyers tend to be bombarded with clients from all the drinking and driving which happens after office parties and family gatherings. One opportunity granted by the holidays is the opportunity to reflect and show appreciation for the things in life we have to be thankful for.
In this post, we will discuss the things which should be high on everyone’s list of things to be thankful for. No matter who you are, you can’t deny that these things are important to everyone.
Friends and Family
This one is easy. If you really think about it, our friends and family are really our most valuable possessions in life. Our basic identity is literally tied up with our relationships with friends and family. These are our primary relationships, the relationships which define who we are and what we value. This holiday season, be sure to express thanks for your friends and family by taking the time to connect with them and show affection.
If you train and integrate your new employee during a busy season, such as the holiday season, there is reason to believe that the training cost will be lower as compared to a slower season. If you hire a virtual employee during busy time, your new hire will be able to absorb all the new information more rapidly as they try to keep up with the pace of work. This will ultimately cut down on training cost. By contrast, if you hire your new employee during a relatively slow period, this may actually mean a longer training time, and consequently more resources. Simply put, the training cost is likely to be higher if you delay your decision until the new year.
Staying in Business
This holiday season is unique because it is the first set of holidays affected by the coronavirus. As we know, COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on our national economy, and has also tragically ended the lives of thousands and thousands of Americans. In the middle of this catastrophe, it may be difficult to find a reason to be hopeful. But one thing which can give people hope is having a business which is still staying afloat. Firm owners who are still hanging in there should be thankful that they are in business during such a challenging period.
