Recognition for All: Why Empathy, Access, and Enablement Matter

Recognition for All: Why Empathy, Access, and Enablement Matter

November 15, 2023

2:00pm ET/12:00 pm MT

Did you know that 80% of the global workforce does not sit at a desk? These dedicated professionals form the backbone of countless organizations—but our research reveals that half of them feel disconnected and expendable. Company culture conversations tend to spotlight technology-driven desk jobs. It’s time for organizations to prioritize a people-centered approach that acknowledges and rewards the vital contributions of every employee.

New research from the O.C. Tanner Institute reveals the dramatic impact of empathy, access, and enablement on the employee experience of the 80% workforce. In this webinar, we will share our findings and recommendations for increasing all three of these in your own workplace—with the ultimate goal of creating a more inclusive, connected, and thriving culture for all of your employees.

Join us to examine the data on:

  • The power of feeling seen, valued, and understood—and how empathy can elevate employee’s sense of belonging by an astonishing 1069%
  • How access (to technology that facilitates connection and to opportunities for career advancement) and enablement (employee autonomy and voice) work in concert to impact the employee experience
  • The transformative effects of meaningful and inclusive recognition on retention rates, growth opportunities, and overall employee experience
