The Importance of Empathy in the Workplace

It’s definitely a trend — and more employers need to get on board to let their employees know they matter

The number of surveys and trend reports that come out at this time of year are more than abundant. It seems everyone is taking stock of the year that was and doing their best to look at the year that will be. If you’ve been paying attention — and even if you haven’t — you know that 2020 was not exactly like any other year for employees, employers or anyone for that matter. Trying to predict how things might look in the coming year will therefore be difficult, if not impossible.

With additional waves of COVID, the flu season, and a rollercoaster of lockdowns and re-openings, work will continue to fluctuate and present problems. But rather than re-hashing what is or what others predict, Your Workplace is going the extra mile. We have determined one trend that we believe will take hold. Maybe it is our wishful thinking, but we believe that this trend is of value to HR, management and employees in general. We will share our investigation into the topic and will assess its importance and value for the coming year.
