Kindness & Corporate Education

The education or (re)education offered by companies through technical or behavioural training programs proposes the adequacy of their professional to the company and its organizational culture. However, today, it is clear that there is a growing demand for Human Resources and T&D (Training and Development) managers in search of consulting companies specialized in training people, seeing the deficiency of early childhood or elementary education.

The role of companies has gone beyond the “enable to perform” frontier. That is why they feel co-responsible for the training of professionals who have just come out of their youth and who, still immature, have entered the labour market. Generation Y is a reflection of all this, allied to the urgency and immediacy caused by technological advances and the internet (see social networks and cell phones always connected).

As there are still a large number of more experienced and mature professionals in the market, companies invest in awareness and fusion programs between generations. People who are older and have more time at home need to adapt to the young people who are admitted and learn new communication tools, inclusive. Process automation and project development are much more effective when they are built on bold new systems. This also requires technical training and continued learning effort.

We all have beliefs, opinions and values ​​that are passed on by our parents, teachers, and important people. For example: solidarity is a value that we often practice in religious groups or on our own initiative, and we do not always carry it to work. How to be humorous with teammates and grumpy at home? This antagonism must be worked out so that people become aware finally of the need to be “unique” in all environments in which we live, whether in the company, in family, society, etc. I myself never managed to separate my personal life from my professional life. There are not two worlds inside me. The peace of one is a condition for the realization of the other.

Corporate Kindness acts mainly in corporations that lack good interpersonal relationships caused by the lack of solidarity, discipline, commitment and even limits.

Since the beginning of the 21st century, we have been experiencing a gradual change in the corporate training scenario in the world. Companies, until then concerned with increasing results and maintaining pressure on their employees, woke up to the need to humanize the professional environment, bringing lightness, peace and even joy to their premises.

Of course, there is still a lot of work to be done, but programs specialized in motivation, good humour, and kindness (in our case) are increasingly requested by small to large companies.

Today, everyone wants to work with pleasure and have a feeling of welcome when they arrive at the company. The biggest obstacle, in most cases, is not the salary or benefits, but the pessimism and bad mood of colleagues or leaders. Being kind is a necessity not only in society, but within companies as well.

When we demonstrate the effectiveness of kind acts, they rediscover (managers) that there is a universe of possibilities through this method, and they feel motivated to multiply it with their teams. In a kind of 'chain', they change their behaviour and convince the group through examples, which should be simple, from buying a candy to hanging up a call with delicacy.

Times have changed and today's professional is eager to find personal and professional fulfilment. In the past, it was quite common for people to say that household problems were outside the company's door and that they never mixed things up. However, given the increasingly exhaustive workload, where people spend a good part of their working life, humanization is necessary, so that they can find a "safe haven" at work, that is, a place where they feel safe and comfortable emotionally. Relating kindness to work, it is believed that a humanized organizational climate allows people to work in harmony with the company's values.

Being kind means seeing the need for change and diagnosing people's shortcomings, weaknesses, and strengths. Kindness can provide a (re)conditioning so that everyone can change their habits and adapt to a new collaborative and healthy profile. Solidary and cooperative work environmental provide happier employees, more productive teams, and higher profits. Kindness generates kindness and much more benefits to companies and to the world.
