How to Bring Kindness to the Workplace
Kindness may not automatically be an activity associated with the workplace, but it is an important element to embed into the very ethos of a working culture. Kindness towards oneself enhances an individual’s mental health and productivity, since self-criticism and judgement will often decrease confidence. Similarly, kindness towards others within the workplace enhances connectivity and is more likely to increase motivation to engage with peers and tasks. In general, kindness is ‘infectious’ and if shown regularly in an authentic way, it will propagate and spread.
