Before Workplace Kindness Week begins, a volunteer coordinator for the activity communicates the idea to the organization and asks interested internal staff to opt in. The activity is entirely voluntary, so not everyone has to participate. Once the list of internal participants has been confirmed, these staff gather on Day 1 to randomly pick names out of a hat (or bag or...you get the idea). The name you choose will be the recipient of your kindnesses for the week. Depending on the organization, you may not know this person very well. So one of the fun parts of Workplace Kindness Week is cleverly trying to learn about your "gratitude partner". This may involve checking out their office space, or asking their friends and colleagues about their interests/likes. Once you have some ideas for how to express appreciation for your "gratitude partner", you have the added fun of figuring out how to deliver your gifts, kindnesses, messages of gratitude, etc. without them finding out it was you. You might elect to ask another colleague to deliver your kindness for you. Or wait until your "gratitude partner" leaves their desk for a meeting. Whatever the plan, your "gratitude partner" will keep finding wonderful gifts and messages in their office or other locations throughout the week. They'll even start to look forward to the next one, which is a great feeling. At the end of Workplace Kindness Week (Day 7), all of the internal participants will gather again. They'll each take turns going around the room guessing who they think their "gratitude partner" was. It is fun to hear the guesses and this part of the activity helps to spread the feeling of gratitude across the organization. Finally, everyone discloses who their true "gratitude partner" was and those colleagues get to personally thank each other. Workplace Kindness Week is a great way to bring teams and colleagues together, and appreciate one another as people and as work colleagues.
