Employers are asking for people to bring their whole selves to work; walk in with their strengths and vulnerabilities held high and seize the day!
Employees are responding to that ask saying “how are you going to take care of me when I walk in the door?”
We know that safety is key to creating a culture of belonging. But that’s only step-one. Let’s talk about how employers go about really understanding their people and what they need to be at their best.
