Here at the candidate, we strive to create a kind and considerate environment to work in. Not only do we believe this on a personal level, but studies have also proven that small acts of kindness throughout your day can have a domino effect on you and your work colleagues. This positively affects moral, job satisfaction, energy levels, and results! Read all about how kindness can impact our lives, and time at work!
Kindness is Contagious!
The positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brains of everyone who witnessed the act making kindness contagious. Improving multiple moods and making them significantly more likely to “pay it forward.” This means one good deed in a crowded area can create a domino effect and improve the day of dozens of people. Therefore, performing acts of kindness wherever and whenever will not only be hugely beneficial to you but to everyone around you.
So don’t underestimate the power of being kind at work! Practicing kindness will be immensely helpful to our colleagues as it builds connections and contributes to a better culture also leading to higher employee engagement, increased job satisfaction, and even improved bottom-line results. Studies show that when colleagues receive a compliment, words of recognition and praise can help individuals feel more fulfilled, boost their self-esteem, improve their self-evaluations, and trigger positive emotions which in all helps to confirm self-worth.
Here at the Candidate, we would like to encourage you to prioritize being kind this week! Here are some simple ideas you could practice in your workspace:
· Offer your help and collaborate with your co-workers
· Recognition- Praise your co-workers on the good work they’ve done
· Say thank you – focus on being appreciative

· Organise a team activity
· Make time for your co-workers
· Be considerate of others
· Remain aware of your words and tone
