Last week I heard of a company that did something truly brilliant.
One of their team members was headed in for open-heart surgery.
The company bought everyone Fitbits and for every 1 million steps in the month, the company donated $1000 to this employee’s surgery.
The team accomplished 5 million steps and raised $5000 for their co-worker!
There are 8 wins here.
The employee receiving the donation
The inspiring experience for each team member who participated in being who they believe themselves to be in the world by making a difference and altruistically contributing to a cause larger than themselves
The experience of the team contributing as a team – one person’s steps alone
could not have made the difference
