Well-being Tip of the Week: Staff Shout Outs

In the Office of Human Resources, we have created a "Staff Shout Outs" board! This is a place where staff members can 'shout out' to one another for doing something helpful or for simply being great. 

How does it work? 

Step 1: Create a board

Step 2: Print and cut out the attached shout out cards

Step 3: Think of a staff member in your department who has been doing a fabulous job lately or someone who has helped you out. Grab a card and write down the compliment and post it to the board.

Step 4: Smile- you made someone's day!
