With all the attention around the physical health and safety of our workplaces, employers could easily neglect the emotional and psychological health of their employees. Now more than ever, employers need to take proactive steps to prevent unconscious biases from unwittingly influencing employee interactions and decision-making, especially during times of heightened stress. Maintaining a focus on diversity, inclusion and positive culture during times of recession produces desired positive business outcomes.
That's why SHIFT decided to hold a webinar on Strategies for Helping your Organization Thrive in Times of Crisis that focused on:
Strategies for fostering psychological safety for employees during these especially difficult times
Types of D&I training employers can offer during these times of remote work and social distancing
SHIFT’s President and Co-Founder, Katherin Nukk-Freeman, Esq., discussed the positive steps employers can take to help employees maintain their emotional and psychological well-being during this difficult time with our Director of Content Development, Karen Byington.
