World Kindness Day: Outsourcing Can Foster Kindness
"Kindness keeps us grounded and relatable to all people as we soar to the heights we are reaching for professionally and personally." - Adrienne Bankert
November 13th is World Kindness Day, celebrated globally to promote compassion and connection. Kindness in the workplace enables people to bring their whole selves to work and contribute their diverse talents.
How can you build a culture of kindness as a leader?
One answer is to outsource. Outsourcing allows you to access skills that supplement your current team's capabilities. It also reduces burdensome tasks so employees can focus on meaningful contributions. With outsourcing, leaders promote consideration and a workplace where team members and colleagues feel valued for their unique abilities rather than overloaded.
"Kindness boosts emotional and mental well-being." - kindness.org
Outsourcing fosters kindness and inclusion through three social network theory principles: reciprocity, exchange, and similarity. Reciprocity means helping others so they will return the favor - assistance is more forthcoming when you have supported colleagues previously. Exchange involves finding partners with complementary abilities to fill your team's gaps - diversity fuels innovation. Similarity provides a sense of community with those who share backgrounds and values.
Outsourcing Best Practices To Foster Kindness In The Workplace
Here are four outsourcing suggestions to foster kindness in your workplace:
Celebrate unique strengths and growth opportunities to show people they matter as individuals.
Promote reciprocal knowledge sharing and mentorship across different levels and departments. Outsource training and development to facilitators who can connect people.
Seek vendors who add diversity, modeling openness to different perspectives and approaches.
Communicate with transparency about outsourcing strategies so people feel involved and included.
