"If you want to lift yourself up, lift up someone else." ~ Booker T Washington
When we lift each other up, we all rise. As a business, we succeed when we all thrive.
Creating a culture where employees feel valued and appreciated benefits everyone. It improves morale and makes people feel vested in the overall success of the company.
This week, we’re inspired by the story of a company who wanted to make their online team meeting feel as connected as if they were meeting in person. Before the meeting, the manager ordered several individual care packages to be delivered to each team member’s home. The packages included a request to not open the gifts until the meeting.
When the team gathered for the weekly meeting, it was more than business as usual. Team members opened the gifts together and were able to see the delight in each other’s faces.
“It was if we were together in person” they said.
The gifts contained a variety of snack items and a soft throw which some members wrapped around their shoulders to bring a little warmth to a chilly day. After the meeting, the team felt more connected with one another and valued and appreciated by the company.
