How Daily Giving Changes Your Workplace

If you are one of the lucky ones, what makes you happy where you work? If you are still trying to answer that question, ask yourself this, what would make you happy at your place of employment? Seeing as we spend most of our time at work, in some cases more time than we do with our families and loved ones (sad reality, but it’s true), shouldn’t the workplace be a happy and uplifting place? There are so many things we can do, that each of us are capable of doing to make the workplace a better place and to change it for the better. It doesn’t cost a lot, but it does motivate people to want to do more. Here are a few ways that I can think of, some being from my own personal experiences in the workplace.

Daily Giving Changes Your Workplace In Positive Ways

  • Support a Co-Worker’s Idea – If you believe in a co-workers idea, support it! This could be as simple as saying, I think this is a great idea at a meeting, or smiling at your co-worker once they present the idea. Support of ideas can make ideas become a reality so if you believe in what they are presenting, give them support.
  • Send a text to acknowledge Others – A simple text that acknowledges someones efforts can bring a big smile. We all work hard, and acknowledging that hard work through a simple text message can rock someone’s world. Don’t hesitate, send that text.
  • Send a Thank You Note – IF someone has done something great, or nice, or well, send a thank you note. A physical not digital note can go a long way. It shows you took the time to say thank you for someone’s work.
  • Start a giving platform in the workplace – these are becoming more and more popular. For example, Pinkaloo – Modern Giving in the Workplace provides a workplace giving program that actually drives employee and client engagement while creating a philanthropic community within the company. People will see that they can builds relationship and empower others as they do their daily business. People want to work for companies who have a mission and values that align with their own. This is a great way to create that reality.
  • Create Volunteer Teams – I personally have participated in this type of giving in workplaces before. O love working at a soup kitchen with my team, or making a meal for the families that have sick children at a Ronald McDonald house. Give some time to the local food bank. Help build a home through Habitat for Humanity. Have an in-office canned food drive or school supply drive. It doesn’t have to cost a lot or take up too much of everyone’s time, but this is such an amazing way to give back as you strengthen relationships in the workplace. Doing a volunteer project each quarter can make a difference in your community and at work.
  • Put a Note On A Co-workers Desk – Place a post it note on your co-worker’s computer saying “You are awesome,” or “ “You rock”. This simple give can have an amazing ripple effect. I am passionate about making others feel good and making others feel appreciated and valued. I have done this so many times in my career and even at home, and let me tell you, it really boosts morale and makes people happy!
