Article Summary: 

Kindness is important for both employees and organizations, as it boosts productivity, builds trust, creates leaders, and creates a positive work culture. Research has found that teams in a respectful, kind environment possess 26% more energy, are 30% more likely to feel motivated and enthusiastic, express 36% more satisfaction with their jobs, and are 44% more committed to their organizations. Kindness is contagious and can cascade across people, creating leaders, and creating a positive work culture. To be intentional kind, it is important to recognize that we can influence the culture we work in by being kind. The most important details are to allow others to speak before you in meetings, help an overwhelmed co-worker with a deadline, listen first, recognize the good work of others, create opportunities for your team to celebrate together, invite new co-workers to a virtual lunch or coffee break, share a link to an article, have lunch delivered to someone you know is having a busy week, ask, smile, become a mentor, squash a rumor, celebrate birthdays and other important events, and be a cheerleader for someone else’s ideas.
