This is a team that’s truly a dream! Workers share the kindness of their coworkers, whether it’s finding a kidney donor to help a colleague teacher or throwing a baby party for a sick pet snail.

  • North American workers have told of stories of kind acts at work.
  • Bored Panda has collected snaps from a gallery that includes a baby shower to a snail
  • Police throwing a surprise party for their police dog friend is one of these stories. 

People spend a lot of time at work so it is not surprising they become close friends with colleagues. 

But these co-workers from the US and Canada  took friendly relationships to the next level, lavishing thoughtful acts of kindness on each other, collated by Bored Panda. 

The unexpected gestures include one thoughtful colleague getting his fellow worker’s  poetry published while another threw a baby shower for their workmate’s pregnant snail.

Some other examples include an organized bunch organizing a birthday ball for their boss, or a workplace that created a log to ensure employees were properly fed while they are locked down.
