Kind Colleagues

Ben’s Bells Kind Colleagues program is a unique approach to creating a kind and engaged workplace by strengthening the culture from within. It utilizes evidence-based principles for developing and honing social-emotional skills and provides a month-by-month framework that businesses and organizations can use to create a kind and effective work environment. Research demonstrates that a kind workplace reduces employee stress and increases productivity. This positive work climate benefits all stakeholders of an organization.

Integrating intentional kindness practices into the workplace supports individual employees, builds team connections, strengthens departments, and strengthens the organization overall. In other words, kindness is good for the individual, the organization, and, ultimately, the bottom line!

 

Program includes:

  • Kind Colleagues Materials (website access to 12 monthly guides, kindness quote posters, science of kindness posters, supplemental materials, videos, and activities to build self-awareness and awareness of others)
  • Program Support for up to 5 kindness coordinators
  • 60-minute presentation by Ben’s Bells Founder and Chief Kindness Officer Jeannette Maré
