Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Corporate Smiles

--by Dr. Anant G Wadkar, posted May 20, 2006
Every year my company inducts a group of 40 summer and management trainees from various business schools in India.

Every year, I induct each batch to the business development function. This year I planned to do it differently.

I printed 5,000 smile cards and distributed them to these young professionals. Compassion need not be restricted to the "outside work zone".

Compassion is more needed at work where we spend more than half of our lifetime. With each tiny step we take, we make a big difference.

I am now waiting to see the outcome of this tornado!

Thank you for the inspiration.
