The power of nice

Protecting our people from bullying and harassment on social media or in person.

The power of nice

Being ‘nice’ is a much under-estimated quality. Beyond its seemingly everydayness lies a formidable power.

The power to encourage openness and trust; the power to bring all sides of a subject to the table to debate, listen, reflect, share, problem solve, challenge (our own views and the views of others) and quite possibly achieve more collaboratively than individually. 

All of this just by being nice. 

It’s a behaviour we encourage within Scottish Sea Farms and it’s a behaviour we always try to adopt with others outside of the company. So it’s only natural that we expect to be shown the same simple courtesy in return.

#BeNice

Blocking people from our social media pages or deleting their comments doesn’t seem very nice, nor does it feel very nice, which is why it's something we are always reluctant to do. Even if the comment posted is something we disagree with or know to be inaccurate or false. 

But when people forget their 'nice' – be it by mischief-making, name-calling, making unfair accusations or using hurtful, offensive or downright abusive language – then we reserve our right to withdraw from their presence. Just as we would if we were addressed that way in any other setting in life. 

Meantime, the rest of us will keep on believing in the power of nice.
