How strong is employee well-being in your organization?
To what extent are your teams truly engaged?
In light of today’s disruptions, many people are looking to work in organizations who have meaning and an inspiring purpose. Trusted relationships, friendships, and meaningful connections at work matter, and we believe there is a necessity to be intentional about improving and solidifying them.
What is EKG?
EKG stands for Empathy, Kindness, and Gratitude. It is a series of ideas and beliefs that help open communications and help establish positive connections. EKG embraces the idea of helping people reach their full potential and help them flourish and grow at work.
Here are the second set of ways EKG can drive employee engagement, well-being, and a positive workplace culture Ways 6-10:
- EKG Provides Lasting Well-Being.
Well-being is dependent on the degree to which people feel valued and connected. By assuming the best in everyone, you are able to better understand how the other person is feeling. Paying attention to doing the little things can make the difference.
- EKG Strengthens Hope and Positive Emotions
Well-being depends on the caring and trusting relationships we develop with each other today. There is no better way to do so than by helping others when
needed or by doing things behind the scenes without anyone knowing. Empathy, Kindness, and Gratitude energizes.
- EKG Develops Likeability and Friendships With Others
Listen with your heart and not just your head. Cultivate a commitment to seeing with your heart to demonstrate genuine caring and compassion. Do things for others without expecting anything in return.
- EKG Helps People Recognize All the Things to be Grateful For as Well as the Power of Thankfulness.
Very few things in life are more desired than appreciation. Everyone needs heartfelt thanks for their contributions. Research confirms that lack of appreciation is the primary reason why people are unhappy at work and quit their jobs. Celebrate often. Pay attention and notice people doing
good things. Be specific in your praise on what you observed.
- EKG and specifically Gratitude is one of the Most Powerful Contributors to Happiness
Life can be rich or it can be miserable. In most cases, your mindset drives how you see the world and how the world sees you. Gratitude is often a small act with a powerful impact. Give it often. It ripples out from where it started, improving the mindsets of all involved.
“Gratitude is the gateway to abundance. It is an essential skill for the World – and the world of work that is emerging now and next.” – Kevin Monroe, Gratitude Guide
In summary, today is the time to make EKG an important part of your culture and how you work. Embrace the power of Human Connection and the uplifting power of Empathy, Kindness, and Gratitude. Treat people with compassion. Margaret Mead once said: “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has!” You CAN change the world at work. The more you give EKG, the more you serve others, the more you get in return. Live it. Embrace it. Act Now.
