A kind word for everybody

June 16, 2020

In celebration of Mental Health Awareness Week (18–24 May) and its 2020 theme, kindness, RSK employees were invited to nominate a colleague who has shown an act of kindness, for our ‘Spotlight Special’, an ‘employee of the month’ type award. Nominees were also invited to share their thoughts on kindness and their nomination in video form. We are now delighted to be able to share a compilation of these videos, a celebration of the acts of kindness within RSK.

During this time of uncertainty, acts of kindness have become more important than ever. Across the globe the kindnesses many have shown to family, friends and strangers has been helping to bring people together, provide support and connect communities. As well as being good for others, studies also show that whether we are giving or receiving it, acts of kindness can help to improve our own emotional wellbeing.

So, congratulations to all our nominees and thank you for sharing your stories.

Further congratulations go to the Spotlight Special Award winner, RSK senior administrator Sue Wissgott.

Sue’s nominator commented, “Sue never overlooks anyone and during lockdown has taken the initiative to keep us all connected with a brief daily catch-up call. Sue emails daily to confirm whether we’re working and contactable. She always takes time to check how we are and respond, this has certainly improved the team spirit, despite the distance apart we’re all working.

“Sue remembers birthdays and passes on good wishes which is normally appreciated but during lockdown has been an extra nice on what could otherwise have been an unremarkable birthday.”

Remember, a small act of kindness could change someone’s day.

🤔 Should businesses offer free period products to staff?

We think they should!

💚 We decided to trial this at our offices, offering pads, panty liners and tampons for free. What’s more, all products on offer (and their packaging) are made from sustainable materials.

What do you think of this initiative?
