Heroes for Better: Take the ‘Pledge to Connect’ With Your Colleagues
May 5, 2020 | 3 min. to read
As Northwestern Medicine continues to provide expert and compassionate care for its patients and communities, caring for each other is equally important, especially during the pandemic. To help remind people of the value of simple check-ins, we have created a “Pledge to Connect” campaign. The optional pledge is meant to show our commitment to each other. If you wish to participate, the rules are easy:
Pledge to check in with at least two colleagues each week as a source of support. You can reach out to the same two people each week, or mix it up and connect with different members of your team or colleagues from other departments.
Connecting can be simple — a text message, phone call, video lunch date or any informal way to show you are thinking of your colleagues. You likely already connect with colleagues in many of these ways.
As of June 2, 402 people have signed the Pledge to Connect.
