How do you grow community at work?


We had some visitors today, folks who support the work our household does. One of the first things they asked was, ‘What do Aboriginal people mean by “mob”?’

We said ‘mob’ is your family. Not just a nuclear sense of family, but an extended sense of family/ You might talk about your whole community as your mob.

At my old workplace, we spoke of ourselves as a mob. It wasn’t just a workplace, it was a community. We couldn’t do community development without a community to invite people into.

Our visitors today were talking about their workplace in a similar way, as a community where people look out for each other.

What do you think is the best thing you can do to grow community in a workplace?
