    PODCAST: #HRHappyHour 354 - Sharing Kindness Inside and Outside the Workplace

    HR Happy Hour 354 - Sharing Kindness Inside and Outside the Workplace

    Host: Steve Boese

    Guest: Anne Donovan, US People Experience Leader, PwC

    Listen to the show HERE

    This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve was joined by Anne Donovan, US People Experience Leader at PwC to talk about their 'Share Kindness' initiative, a global program to help people share acts of kindness inside and outside the workplace. The Share Kindess program is simple - it encourages both the people at PwC, as well as all of us, to share a simple act of kindness with someone, and then share what they did at the 'Share Kindness' site - https://www.pwc.com/us/sharekindness. It's that simple, but it's also turning into something really powerful - folks at PwC are sharing their stories of buying a stranger's coffee, helping carry groceries to the car for an elderly person, or even just letting a fellow driver merge into traffic in front of you. 

    There's some really interesting things happening with the Share Kindness program - obviously encouraging people to be kind to each other is great, but it also serves as an element of PwC's overall employee wellbeing approach - being kind makes us feel good too. And as Anne really clearly stated on the show, her job is to look after something simple and important - the answer to 'How does it feel to work here?' question that all employees think about, especially in this historically competitive labor market.

    This was a really fun conversation - please do visit the Share Kindness site - https://www.pwc.com/us/sharekindness to get involved.
