Event Details

The last two years of economic upheaval shook our foundations, but they’ve also awakened our organizations to new possibilities.  Johnny C. Taylor, Jr., President and CEO of SHRM, suggests that the business skill most executives and people managers are missing at this critical juncture is empathy.  In new research 83% of Generation Z say they would choose an employer with a strong culture of empathy over an employer offering a higher salary AND the same 83% would consider leaving their current organization for a similar role at a more empathetic organization.  As we reset, reimagine, reinvent, and reinvigorate our organizations to meet the most pressing challenges facing the world of work, including talent, culture, hybrid work, and a multi-generational workforce, teaching our people managers to exercise their atrophied empathy muscles will be absolutely critical.
