Empathy is meaningful when employees are listened to, when they feel that they are heard and when leadership commits to implementing solutions that enable them to thrive, prosper and successfully manage personal and professional responsibilities. The current pandemic provides employers with an outstanding opportunity to implement solution-focused employee benefits, particularly those which impact women and their professional advancement. There are five areas of action in which leaders can make empathy meaningful: 1. Invest in communication best practices; 2. Prioritize and implement disability risk mitigation measures; 3. Critically examine current benefits and the corporate culture; 4. Empower women to manage their careers & continue to support their professional advancement; and 5. Leadership must commit to demonstrate empathy for employees
Engagée dans la tradition chrétienne de spiritualité, je me décris comme un éternel esprit évolutif, solidement chevillé à une expérience terrestre utile. Cela dit, je ne nierai pas que mon expérience terrestre est façonnée par mon sexe, mon appartenance ethnique et mon héritage culturel.

When unmet, these needs put employee wellness and engagement in jeopardy.
