For many of us, that’s 90,000 hours of stress. But studies on workplace compassion show it doesn’t have to be that way. Spreading compassion has been shown to increase productivity, foster positive relationships, and even boost employee immune systems. How many organizations, however, encourage the use of compassion? Join us for a community conversation about how we can cultivate compassion in our businesses and organizations.
