Join Ted Drake, Global Accessibility Leader, from Intuit, Maria Grazia Zedda from HS2 and AbilityNet on the 24th May to talk about how leaders can build a culture of empathy.
Covid-19 has changed the workplace for many employees and has raised everyone's awareness of inclusion in the workplace. As our recent article shows, empathy is becoming a key skill for leaders in organisations of all types, as a key tool in building teams that feel valued and supported.
There are many benefits to creating an empathetic workplace, such as:
Boost productivity and increase creativity creates better products and services.
Create trust within the business, increase employee satisfaction and lower employee turnover.
Boost competitive advantage and, according to Accenture, increase shareholder returns.
Building an inclusive workplace requires empathy, where you truly understand another person’s perspective. Empathetic leadership requires you to listen and understand the needs of others. Your employees are individuals that need to be valued for who they are.
In this webinar we will hear from experienced leaders who will share their tips for developing empathy in your teams.
