ThankView Gives Back
“Following the murder of George Floyd, we as founders were all grappling with what this meant to us personally and as leaders. We all wanted to become active participants in a positive change but we didn’t want to dictate what was important to our team members.
That’s why we concluded to let every employee decide for themselves. We’re inspired by our team’s creativity and care, which is now spread far and wide.”
-JD Beebe, CEO and Cofounder
