Little Stories About Work consists of informative and thought-provoking animated stories made from cartoon-like animation. The project presents whole stories or bits of longer stories about misbehavior patterns, undesired situations and any problematic recurring themes in the workplace. This vehicle is to make all workers aware, prevent and constrain negative behavior in the early stages of bullying and other interpersonal and organizational problems.
It can be used for group training, individual learning and even private talks every day to deliver a new learning experience. Owners, companies' management and Human Resource specialists can use the project to directly reduce negative practices and improve working environment. In the long run, it can help to create an organizational culture free from bullying, improve wellbeing of employees and the image of a company. The animated illustrations can be complemented with professional materials to deliver full training resources.
Not all workers are trained on it, so they may not have basic knowledge and skills to combat it. Apparently, it is assumed that employees have somehow learned it at school or they are well-brought-up. But in reality, some people are prone to be difficult co-workers while others are vulnerable. They may not be fully aware of their situation as they cannot recognize concrete, often subtle and veiled, examples of unacceptable behavior. Also, people involved in such stressing and complex situations may be frozen, they remain passive and maintain the status quo. Let's make them re-think it!
If you want to get people to really learn you can give an overview of the topic and then go on to detailed examples illustrated by our clips. Clear, detailed, concise and direct visual illustrations make the little stories a compelling supplement to spice up lessons and discussions. The animations present serious things in a lighter and sometimes humorous way or from a different perspective. That is why people will think the topic out deeper. Some of them can bring a bit of controversy on the personal level, but all this can have a stronger impact on people’s memory, attitudes and behavior, which is ultimately beneficial at the organizational level. On the other hand, it can bring some fun and engage people too.
Bear in mind that our project is a systematic approach inspired by real-life stories and professional knowledge. Last but not least, it will also help to bring more employee wellbeing into the workplace and achieve your broader business goals such as retention and refining employer brand.
So, have you had a hunch, heard rumors or spotted anything suspicious? Or maybe you just think that prevention is better than cure? We offer two options and both plans offer easy, convenient and cost-effective solutions to enhance interpersonal skills.
Plan A. You can enhance an awareness training session or workshop with our illustrations. Let's think outside the box and stimulate imagination and spice conversations up with a couple of animated stories. If this option is too awkward, disruptive or simply difficult to organize then consider individual learning.
Plan B. You can give all sides of the difficult and challenging situation an individual subscription to our website or app and suggest in a tactful way that they look at issues from some other perspective. You do not have to bother them with daunting training materials. Give them a chance to draw conclusions on their own and watch the progress.
Plan C. We can also illustrate themes selected by your company and tailored to its problems or even someone’s personal story. It will take some time to create the new little stories, but you will get reusable resources to combat regular issues in your workplace.
Now, it serves as a free trial. Why not give it a go?
