Departmental Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Binder
A Random Acts of Kindness binder is a great way to build comradery and reinforce a positive environment at work. A RAK Binder serves as a reference guide for the employees in your department. Each employee can complete a sheet about themselves for other employees to use when they want to do something nice for that person. Each sheet should be housed within your department’s RAK Binder, which should be kept at a central location. One act of kindness can start a chain reaction, creating a whole department that is full of kindness, appreciation and positivity. Access the template for your departmental RAK binder here.
Stay tuned for team challenges including a walking challenge, hydration challenge, and fruit and vegetable challenge. Challenges can be organized for individuals in a department to compete against each other or for entire departments to compete as a team against other departments. To bring a challenge to your department, email the GatorCare Wellness Coordinator Morgan Papworth at firstname.lastname@example.org.
