Hope you had a great Thanksgiving week! The year will be over before we know it, and I'm always excited for a refresh – every January feels like a fresh opportunity to set new goals and reflect on what we're looking to get out of life.

At the top of my list? Getting more active now that I started working remotely. I honestly miss those walks from the parking lot to the office and hustling up and down stairs between meetings.

I'm not alone in setting fitness goals of course. Unsurprisingly, governments and community organizations have a vested interest in a healthier population as well. Their challenge? How to motivate people to change their habits. After all, we need that inspirational spark to spur action and intrinsic motivation to sustain it.

Our featured company this week, Rescue Agency, specializes in change management for healthier lives. Some of their past work has focused on smoking, nutrition, and opioids – massive challenges with an undeniable impact on our quality of life. As you'll see from their job opportunities below, you don't need a marketing background to contribute to these efforts.

Whether you're seeking a change management career or another form of social impact, let's dive into this week's job opportunities:

Rescue Agency is a unique full-service marketing agency compared to those we usually feature in the newsletter. They specifically focus on helping people adopt positive behaviors that improve their health. This is about as close to "change agent" as we get each week – if that's a moniker you'd like to wear on a daily basis, there are a lot of opportunities to make a difference here.

Peak Design is a Certified B Corp that specializes in bags and phone cases for electronics. Most of their social impact efforts focus on sustainability and reducing the carbon footprint of their supply chain – I was especially happy to see that they are auditing their major suppliers and being transparent when those suppliers don't meet their environmental objectives. Everyone will have their own views on what makes for a great company culture, but that signals a willingness to improve and a commitment to accountability that goes beyond greenwashing.
