The Kindness Toolkits

Building a workplace of kindness doesn't have to entail a systemic, resource-intensive overhaul. Simple gestures, repeated, can often be just as transformative.

 

Below is a range of ideas, tools and resources to help you get started on making a real and lasting impact!

  • Display positive messages about kindness in your workplace. Remember kindness starts with self-care. Display these free downloadable messages of kindness, or send an e-greeting to thank someone.

  • Kindness can mean different things to different people. Build a kindness wall or tree using these cards and gather a diverse range of views on what kindness means where you are. (This creative idea was inspired by our friends at Monash Health!)
