Kindness at Work is a Podcast available on WATCH & GO® — Tell me more…
Supporting mental health and wellbeingAnticipating people’s needs and doing things to help them without being asked, shows that you are thinking and caring about others. When we treat colleagues with kindness, it helps them to feel valued and psychologically safe – and that’s when people give of their best at work. In this ten-minute podcast Sue Duraikan talks about why kindness at work is so important and gives practical examples of how to build a culture of kindness.
