Bring Humanity and Compassion to Life

Encourage, enable, and motivate every employee to take time out every few months to go and volunteer for a ’cause’.  They are free to choose the cause but it must adhere to the following criteria:

1. No less than 1 day 

2. Involve a vulnerable part of society

3. Be at the ‘front line’ of the cause

And why you may ask should an organisation do this? What value will it bring? What is the ROI?

This practice will ensure three critical outcomes:

1. Bring humanity and compassion to life throughout the organisation via tangible action.

2. Help people retain their sense of perspective, focus on their strengths and reach their potential.

3. Encourage people to judge less, listen more, share more, and therefore connect far more effectively with their colleagues.

The ROI – it’s priceless, simply priceless

People feel good about themselves when they can help others.

People thrive when they are in a community built on shared values.

People need meaning and a purpose.

It is within the gift of the organisation to enable all of this so let’s just do it!

NIK DAVIS is a business transformation expert and has spent 20 years in the corporate world. Her comfort zone is order, logic and applying analytical tools to solve complex problems. She is also a keen observer of life, a writer and eccentric. Nik has recently returned to the world of work after taking a career break to spend time with her family. Upon her return, she found that her perspective had changed, as had the world she was returning to. Nik decided to carve out a new place in that world and mould some of it to fit her too. Nik sees life from quirky angles, shaped by experiences and the vast amount of knowledge we now have access to. She likes to write about her experiences and observations. To ‘tell it how it is’ and to find a more authentic way to live, whether in our professional or personal lives. Nik often talks about finding ‘The Third Way’. It’s a philosophy about life, having a personal life as well as a career, making money and being socially generous, being logical and sensitive, living by the rules of a society but not being afraid to challenge them, inspiring others to feel good but not for your own ego, giving rather than taking. Nik wants to make a difference to this world by getting people to see things differently, to try new ways of working but most of all, to re-discover our true selves and therefore reach our true potential. Nik also has two other persona’s: nikdavis which is where Nik writes about her deeply personal experiences of life. Nik runs a facebook group alongside this website to create a safe place for people to discuss the topics that are raised in her blog. Nik’s second persona is Lilly Isabella and this is where she shares her passion of fashion and design.
