As we return to the office, so many are suffering the effects of the upheaval and trauma of the past two years. A majority of workers are looking for a new job. What they crave isn’t a higher paycheck; it’s meaning and connection.

Employers that are able to show through their actions that they care about their workers are going to surge forward in this new era. This session covers the steps we can take to build a culture of empathy for a stronger workplace, more productive teams, and a healthier workforce.
