Workforces everywhere are suffering from an unkindness epidemic

Around 23% of the UK workforce report they have been bullied at work, and 25% report that they have been made to feel left out in the workplace. These unkind behaviours break down the teamwork that’s essential for high-quality work. They make mistakes and errors more likely. They make colleagues miserable. And they are contagious.

But there is a solution to the unkindness epidemic

Over the past ten years, we have worked with more than 40,000 staff to nurture more consistently kind, safe cultures, across their organisations.

The Kindness into Action learning programme consists of five online learning modules, and is specifically designed to support your kinder culture transformation.

Since its introduction in January 2022, fifteen NHS Trusts and two Integrated Care Systems are already benefiting from Kindness into Action.
