    Workplace kindness may be one of the rarest forms of kindness. We’re more frequently expected to share kindness at home, with friends, in places of worship, in our neighborhood and at school.
    Yet the workplace is one place where kindness is not emphasized and often sorely missed — we’re too busy, too distracted, too competitive.
    The climate of communication today is often unkind, too. We’re barely a week out from a bitterly divisive presidential election with name-calling from both sides. We have been immersed in inconsiderate commentary for endless months.
    We all need kindness — today more than ever. In employee management in particular, kindness is powerful. It lifts up people, and it lifts up business. Sharing kindness makes both the giver and the receiver feel good. It sparks a kindness chain reaction.
    “When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it helps us also to develop inner happiness and peace.”

    –Dalai Lama

    World Kindness Day seeks to challenge the status quo and promote everyday kindness through gratitude and action. Celebrate it this Nov. 13! Better yet, choose to invest in your workplace culture by focusing on building a climate of kindness. We love the inspiration from the RAK Foundation and bet you will, too.
    Read on for examples of workplace kindness and tips for celebrating #WorldKindnessDay with your employees.

    Random acts of kindness shouldn’t need a reason, explanation or holiday, but in today’s fast-paced workplace, we could all use a reminder to be kinder.
    We get that little nudge to be kinder with World Kindness Day, held annually on Nov. 13.
    World Kindness Day evolved from a series of conferences in the 1990s in Japan by a group that grew to be known internationally as the World Kindness Movement. Since then, the group has gone global and is working to promote kindness from Italy to South Korea.
    The World Kindness Movement partners with the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation to spread and promote kindness, gratitude, and joy wherever and whenever it can.
    This year, in honor of World Kindness Day, the Random Acts of Kindness Foundation has some fun ideas for how to celebrate.
    Read on to find out how to make your workplace “party central” on World Kindness Day.
