Description

Many of us feel overwhelmed and under-equipped when a co-worker goes through a disruptive life event. However, most co-workers and managers have little idea of what to do or say. Instead of offering impactful and relevant support, many default to silence or toss out a tired cliché.

How your organization supports people in the midst of hard times matters; it drives retention, helps to attract talent, alters brain chemistry, and lets people know that you truly care.

What if you could feel empowered to competently care for coworkers? In this interactive and inspirational session, workplace empathy expert Liesel Mertes will equip you to be a workplace first responder, offering empathy and compassion when it matters most.

Program is certified for 1.25 SHRM and HRCI credits.

Breakfast is included at this event.
