TAG Travel - Better Business Travel Management

Take time out today to TAG
somebody that you know is working
hard and tell them you’re proud of
them. Whether they’re working hard
to be a better person, run a business,
or chasing a dream. You never know
who may need to hear those words
to keep going…

Jonathan Gerber in his weekly email messages left #TeamTAG TAG (Travel Assignment Group) with these words: “This will be an interesting week, hopefully we’ll recover quickly. Play your part, do your best and stay strong – we’ve got this! I really appreciate all of your continued efforts. I know that many of you feel like this took the wind out of your sails or that it was like a proper gut punch. You are in the right place at the right company, we will prevail.
Stay strong, be kind, mask up, vaccinate & continue to be good South Africans. Sending you all much love! Be KIND to others and to yourself. Until next week, shine on.”
