According to Businessolver’s 2022 State of Workplace Empathy Study, the executive empathy gap continues to widen, with CEOs rating their organizations, employees, HR teams, and even themselves as less empathetic today than in prior years. One reason for the growing gap is that executive priorities are shifting back to the bottom line while employees continue to struggle balancing increased productivity demands with the ongoing health, financial, and well-being effects of the pandemic.

Join this one-hour session featuring a diverse roundtable of executive leaders as they discuss the empathy gap and how to work with HR leaders to reclaim empathy as a core organizational strategy. You’ll hear:

  • First-hand responses from executives about how to close the empathy gap.
  • What it means to “learn empathy” (and how HR teams can help support that learning across all levels of their organization).
  • Data to support empathetic leadership as a win-win for people and profit goals.
  • Insights on how to “manage up” to the C-suite to close the empathy gap.
