App | Grateful

“It prompts me each day to answer a question such as ‘What made you smile today?’ or ‘What are you looking forward to?’ It causes me to take a moment each day to recognize the good things, big or small, and intentionally practice gratitude. You can even add a photo. It can turn a bad day into a better one in a matter of seconds.” Available for iOS devices

—Jenny Senecal, SVP/regional credit director, Bell Bank

App | Calendly

“You sync it with your Outlook calendar and then you send the link to people to pick a time to meet. Eliminates a ton of back-and-forth trying to find a time to meet.

—Kate Gillette, vice president, Avison Young

Product | BA CraftMade

“Their aprons are so durable. Plus, they have aprons with an angled pocket at the top, because I told them it made sense to do it that way—easier to put things in, like pens. I especially like their Project Black and Blue: They donate half of revenue to support work that has a direct and positive impact on restaurant industry workers who are dealing with mental, physical, and/or financial stress.”

—Yia Vang, chef, Union Kitchen
