As the world slowly recovers from the Covid-19 pandemic, it is important that the workplace and indeed all those who are employed, whether remotely or on-site, seek to establish and sustain compassion for colleagues. According to Positive Psychology, workplace compassion invites more loyalty, dedication, and employee engagement. Organizations have an emotional component in them, and employees who work with each other compassionately are more likely to help and cooperate. If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it is the fact that compassion is a necessary ingredient in the workplace. Before now, most of us couldn’t care less about being compassionate. However, because of the pandemic, we are all wiser today and we need to start showing compassion to everyone – regardless of their status, ethnicity, or work rank. According to Pacific Prime, practicing and showing compassion has the ability to spread harmony in any environment, making it ideal for the workplace. A Heaphy and Dutton study carried out in 2008, revealed that employees who spent a few minutes interacting and mixing with their colleagues had steady blood pressure and heart rate. Also, their immune systems are well-functioning, making them less prone to take sick leave. Increased functioning also called for better work-life balance, and the employees had happier families and social life. Showing compassion to coworkers is not about being weak in the workplace, it is also a way to promote a healthy work environment as opposed to breeding a toxic one, which will inevitably lead to reduced output, employees will begin to dread turning up for work. The Covid-19 pandemic has changed the way we live, work and even spend our leisure periods. It is only right that we take the time to be there for one another in the workplace, so we can promote a better and healthier world. Credit - Lingo Africa.
