Making Positive Attitudes Fun and Contagious

The Pickle Challenge for Charity

The Pickle Challenge is really quite simple for something so impactful. Employees bring in decorated pickle jars and start fining each other one (1) quarter for every time they catch a coworker whining or complaining in the workplace. This simple act mobilizes and empowers employees to actively address disengagement and toxic emotional negativity in the workplace. Want to try it?
