“Do something today that your future self will thank you for”

A week today will be Christmas Day! I hope you are all prepared and ready for the festivities (I’m very disorganised this year so I still have last minute bits to shop for!)

When we spread messages of joy and positivity, we feel good but we also remind others of what joy feels like and it may just inspire others to do the same. It is these small acts of kindness that make a big difference.

So today’s HR act of kindness is about putting a smile on someone’s face and in the absence of a challenge for yesterday, you have a choice:

  • Offer to stay at work late or come in early to help a colleague with a difficult project or task, don’t wait for them to ask you. Some people are reluctant to say they need assistance
  • Praise your colleague or someone who supports you for a job well done. People rarely complain about getting too many compliments!
