Did you know there's one simple thing you can do at the beginning of your workday to improve your happiness, performance and overall well-being? At Plasticity, our mission is to give people the skills to create happier, higher performing workforces. And even though we say that the habits of high performing people require intention and effort to build, those actions don’t need to be complicated. They can be as simple as brushing your teeth, holding the door open for someone, or perhaps even as simple as saying 'thanks'. All you need is a pen and a piece of paper to write down one thing or person you are grateful for everyday. It's as simple as that!

This year I’ve had the incredible opportunity to travel, study, and live abroad for five months. I am currently in Singapore, the “lion city” and lively hub of South-East Asia. I have made a strong conscious effort to take this trip mindfully and it has made my exchange a deeply meaningful experience so far. Interning at Plasticity has equipped me with the mindset to approach any task or challenge with an open and grateful mind, so I have assembled three tips for travelling with gratitude.  

When you think about the characteristics of a successful manager, what comes to mind? Some descriptors may be creative, intuitive, committed, and disciplined. But what about precise, comprehensive, and calculated? These qualities often go under the radar when describing effective management, but are arguably some of the most important. The ability to make carefully formulated decisions and judgements regarding employees are what can make work teams function seamlessly. How can this be done?

This summer I had the incredible opportunity to join the Plasticity Labs team as a marketing and communications intern. Not only was this my very first time working in a professional setting, but also my first time working on a thriving start-up team. The fast-paced, passionate, and vibrant atmosphere of the company made for an exhilarating and quick few months.

Plasticity Labs is excited to announce that Janice Young is formally joining us in a Full Time role as our Customer Happiness Specialist! Janice has worked closely with all of our customers for over a year in a part time capacity, but being so good at what she does, our customers just wanted more time with this rockstar!  We of course had to respond by offering Janice the chance to become a full fledged Plastician, certainly not something we take lightly around here. 

We are so happy to have Janice become a full-time member of our team. All of us here at Plasticity are confident that she will continue to bring joy to our customers as she truly embodies our company’s mission. Janice is passionate about making people happy, so we could not be more thrilled to have her take this next step at Plasticity.
