Benefits of Kindness

According to one study, people who were treated kindly at work repaid it by being 278% more generous to coworkers compared to a control group. Being kind at work increases job statisfaction, and can create a morale-boosting wave throughout an organization.

Another study showed that many leaders view kindness as a core value. When viewed this way and communicated consistently, employees are happier and more productive. Financial performance also increases.

Our Kindness Goals

“I am very passionate about my community because I know when it’s kind and healthy, the world is a better place,” says Core Recovery Founder Jillian Vanselow.

“Our goal is to start a wave of kindness throughout our community. We’re not looking for staged events, but real-life things people do to help others, their community, or the environment. We know they’re out there, and we want to celebrate them and start a chain reaction that spreads across our great city!“
