It’s Good To Be Kind…

Random Acts of Kindness Week (11-17 February) serves as a reminder of the importance of compassion, empathy and generosity in our daily lives.

Its mission to ‘make kindness the norm’ is aimed at inspiring people to spread positivity and impact in their communities and beyond. Being kind is good for an individual’s health and also shown to directly benefit a business too.

Consumers are increasingly seeking to buy from businesses that are having a positive impact on society and the environment. After all, ‘doing good’ or ‘being kind’ is an attractive attribute of any individual or business.

In Deloitte’s Global Readiness Report, business leaders highlighted their priorities of linking positive contributions to society with profit seeking. Whereas previously these were considered mutually exclusive, they are now seen as an essential focus on how a business functions and that here is a direct correlation between doing good and making profits.

In celebration of Random Acts of Kindness Week, we are delighted and proud to highlight clients who are leading the way with ‘doing good’ as part of their ethos and offering, and to congratulate them on their mission to successfully combine kindness with growing their bran and business.
