Asking Mayo Clinic Staff to #LeadByExample

Mayo Clinic is launching an organization-wide campaign to promote staff ownership and accountability around masking and social distancing both at and away from work. 

The #LeadByExample campaign encourages staff to support and participate in Mayo Clinic’s approach to safety — for themselves, their families and the patients we serve — by using proven strategies to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Mayo Clinic Occupational Health Services data show that universal masking, hand hygiene, social distancing and screening, together, result in a decline in the number of workplace exposures among staff.

Below are some visual assets you may download and share on your personal social media accounts, along with some suggested messages. Another option is to share photos that show how you #LeadByExample.

Please join the campaign!


Wearing a mask and staying 6 feet apart, while at work and in public, can help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and is a very simple way to protect each other and our patients. #LeadByExample

Helping prevent the spread of COVID-19—by wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart at work and in public—is the simplest thing we can do for each other, and our patients. #LeadByExample

Simple acts can help prevent the spread of COVID-19, so it’s important as health care leaders that we all do our part to protect each other and our patients by wearing masks and staying 6 feet apart at work and in public. #LeadByExample

This is great! I'm taking it to our team. Are there photos too? Or just the copy for the "visual assets"? Thanks!

We would encourage people to take their own photos showing and telling their ways of behaving safely. Here for example is a link to my tweet from this morning, and how I golf at 5:45 a.m. when no one else is on the course. https://twitter.com/LeeAase/status/1278337115735183366 We would encourage people to use their own creativity, and the images above are also a resource they can use.

It has gotten most engagement in our private Facebook groups. We've had several staff posting on their personal social media accounts. It's an ongoing effort. One of our successes was an email we sent to our Mayo staff members of MCSMN, which led to some increased postings. So the full-court press of old-fashioned email along with the social networks is a good combo.
