Great idea! I think this is a tangible way for employees to gauge their gratitude in the corporation. To address your concern for employees who work remotely or in different offices, would it be possible to expand your idea to be a 'virtual token' on the corporate website? Employees could access their tokens in the same area of the company site where they find their benefits, courses, goals, etc.
Food is a great way to bring people together! In larger organizations I have been a member of, culture groups, such as the Latino Culture Club, have utilized platforms such as 'Hispanic Heritage Month' to bring the company together and celebrate diversity. One way they made an impact was bringing in local chefs, hosting cooking classes, and inviting guest speakers. By celebrating diversity, it brought those who participated closer together.
How would you foster participation in those employees that may not be initially eager or may be hesitant to contribute?
Hi Dano, I think having a Gratitude toolkit is a tangible way for corporations and employees to assess and keep track of their gratitude. I was wondering as far as phasing this toolkit in organizations, are you looking to initiate with companies who already express certain levels of gratitude, or are you thinking this is a toolkit that every corporation will get on board with? Also, how are you selling your idea to corporations? Is it to cultivate corporate culture and employee retention, or focusing more on on the individual employees and empowering those individuals?
