Happier Employees. Better Business. Caring World.

Take a pause with Hush @ Workplace

Imagine commanding a Dragon Boat. You’re tireless pounding the drum and relaying instructions, but no matter what you say or do, your teammates are rowing out of sync and clashing into one another. You’re exhausted. Exasperated. “Why can’t they just do things right?!” You wonder.

Amidst your own anger, you don’t realise how breathless your teammates are. Their arms are sore, and fatigue plagues their faces. Despite not getting things ‘right’, they’re doing their best to row the boat correctly, and are quickly burning out.

You take a pause and begin to reflect. “Am I communicating things effectively? They are working so hard, am I listening with empathy, to understand what they are communicating to me?” (*this was a scenario demonstrated at one of the Hush@Workplace projects)

Did you know, that poor communication can cost your employees $37 billion, and burnout can lead to a loss of about $226 billion, due to decreased productivity?

What more can you (CXOs, HRs, D&Is and Department Heads) do to support your employees?

Every workplace differs in dynamics and culture, everyone needs that Hush; the much needed pause to slow down, and reflect for better clarity, which leads to increased productivity.

We are continuously looking to co-create refreshing Hush experiences for your people development, and to meet the different needs that you may have.

From an hour long empathy session, to a two-day leadership retreat in Silence, Hush works closely with you to customise your sessions.

How It Works

Let the Deaf lead you through a 4 zone journey of silence, self-care and empathy.

Setting Intention

Disconnect to connect. Set your intention for the session. Learn to sign different emotions with our Deaf facilitators. Choose a TeaMood that you resonate with to represent your emotion.

Reflect in Hush

Take a pause, and breathe in deeply. Take a gentle sip of your TeaMood, let it guide you through the tender journey of awareness and reflection as you find yourself again. Experience the power/loudness of silence.

Express your Emotions

Express your emotions through tea art. Hush-It-On, and pen down a note of inspiration for future Hushers like you.

Share your Heart

Share your experience, sign your takeaways to our Deaf facilitators.

I believe that such (Hush) sessions are useful for our cancer support group patients and staff. We often treat symptoms with drugs, but if patients can tap their psychological reserves, they will be more aware of how they can help themselves instead of being filled with fear about the future.

…we first connected with Hush through a deaf member of our team. The most significant moments were at the end of the sessions where we were encouraged to share with others our experiences which created a stronger team bond…for many of us it was the realization that just making time in the day to take a short break in silence can be very refreshing and help relieve much of the stress we can get from work and life.

Hush TeaBar was with us last year and brought to our offices the wonderful experience of ‘Rush to Hush’. This social movement impressed me with its calm and creative approach to the social challenge of hearing impairment. Experiencing the TeaRitual at the Hush TeaBar was interesting on many levels, as it took me on a reflective journey. The TeaRistas from the silent world touched the hearts and souls of many at DBS.
