Kindness in the Workplace
Spreading the kindness one workplace at a time
Kindness is contagious. When we're kind, we inspire others to be kind, and it actually creates a ripple effect that spreads outwards to our friends' friends' friends - to three degrees of separation. David R. Hamilton, Ph.D.
How important is kindness to workplaces? Several science-based studies show that performing acts of kindness results in significant physical and mental health benefits for both the doer and the receiver. Kindness makes us happier, gives us healthier hearts and stronger immune systems, and fosters stronger human interrelations.
Let's talk about why workplaces can benefit from kindness
It's proven: Happier employees are great for business. They are healthier, they feel more creative, and they are willing to work harder for their employer and teams.
In a real way, practising kindness can sit behind that happiness as it reminds us of our interconnectedness, and we can all learn to appreciate what those 'small acts of kindness' can do to the social values of an office, including boosting morale and company loyalty.
