Sharing kind words
We created an anonymous form that you can use to fill in and compliment or send thank-you’s to your colleagues around the university. We have had a lovely response already:
This one is for Chris Storrs from Humanities:
- Thank you so much for reaching out to your colleagues at the beginning of the pandemic and making sure everyone was ok. You were such a refreshing touch point, and were always good for a nice conversation about something other than the stressful and chaotic things I was dealing with on a daily basis.
