Harper Grey Human Resources Department offers webinar on empathy for all firm members
Empathy is a core element of communication, innovation, and happiness. On Tuesday, October 24, the firm’s HR department organized a webinar with Chantelle Lam of Homewood Health about empathy. Chanelle skillfully walked us through:
- Understanding what empathy is: Its importance and its limitations
- Gaining strategies to practice empathy in our workplace
- Learning why healthy boundaries are important and how to set them
- Learning how to practice self-care
Interestingly, research has shown that people who are empathic tend to be happier and have an easier time connecting with people on a meaningful level. In the workplace, empathetic environments have been shown to increase productivity and innovation.
Thank you to the Harper Grey Human Resources team and Chanelle Lam from Homewood Health for this insightful webinar!
