Developing Empathy in the Workplace
Empathy is a key component of emotional intelligence and those who practice empathy tend to be happier and attract friends more easily. In the workplace, empathy leads to more engaged employees, encourages innovation and increases cooperation. Research singles out empathy as a force for productivity, life-work integration and positive work experiences.
In support of our customers and their employees across the country, on Tuesday, January 25th and Wednesday, January 26th, Homewood Health will be hosting a webinar focused on developing empathy within the workplace.
Developing Empathy in the Workplace, hosted by Katherine Sisak & Christy Logeman (English), and Vanessa Forgues (French).
In this session, participants will learn what empathy is and how to effectively practice empathy in the workplace, along with how to set healthy boundaries and practice self-care.
Please join us for this special event.
Space is limited. Register now!
Please note that this webinar will be recorded and posted to our website one week following the final session.
