As businesses continue to return employees to the workplace, it is vital to have leadership in management that can motivate, support, and uplift your workers, thereby increasing employee happiness and productivity. How can business owners and corporations use compassion and empathy to increase collaboration, reduce employee turnover, and build sustainable leadership for the future of your business?
Join me and my guest, Marissa Badgley, Founder of “Reloveution”, to discuss how corporate strategies steeped in business acumen and love can build sustainable leadership models for growth. A game-changing show for a game-changing Covid-19 era!
0:45 – 15:44 – Eric introduces his guest Marissa Badgley, MSW. Marissa is the Founder of “ReLoveution”, a consulting and professional development services provider that transforms organizational strategy with heart. She talks about her toxic experiences in the workplace and how it inspired her to create authentic systems that derive from compassion and understanding. Marissa mentioned that the cause for a toxic workplace comes from the lack of H.E.A.R.T. (humanity, empathy, authenticity, relationships, and trust). She believes that with more compassion amongst employer and employee there will be an increase in positive productivity and a decrease in employee turnovers.
18:11 – 30:44 – After the break, Eric and Marissa went on to talk about the connection between empathy, heart, and productivity. Marissa explained that in order to have a work environment suitable for everyone, organizations must create leaders that are grounded in heart, from there you maximize productivity. Employers can ensure that systems are in place to hold their employees at the highest standard so companies don’t have to rely on scare tactics or prioritize competition. Marissa believes that making an employee feel valued makes a difference.
Eric and Marissa also talked about people working during the pandemic and how it shifted people’s priorities. Marissa explains that values have shifted after enduring a traumatic year. She believes there will be a wave of people deciding to resign from their job because they found better ways to manage work and life during the pandemic.
33:23 – 46:16 – Marissa continues to talk about the traumatic experiences individuals have faced during the past year. She goes on to explain how trauma can impact the brain in profound ways. People go through spiritual changes during these hard times. While some of us head back to work, employers can’t expect the same employee from 2020. Company’s need to acknowledge that we are in a mental health crisis and the next phase needs to be about healing, collectively.
48:31 – 58:08 – In the final segment, Eric and Marissa wrapped up their conversation. Eric reinstated Marissa’s views on listening to employees and valuing their human needs. Eric also mentioned how Marissa’s services helped businesses get to a place where there is harmony and productivity.
About Employment Law Today
Helping Business With Employment Law Issues.
For many business owners, it can be overwhelming to keep up and comply with the federal and state labor and employment laws that govern how they run their business. With the COVID-19 pandemic, there are new laws and regulations regarding hiring, firing, and workplace practices and protocols — all of which can increase business owners’ anxieties about regaining traction or thriving again. On my weekly show, we will be discussing the most common employment law related questions and challenges that business owners have been facing in these uncertain times.
The show will have three main goals: (1) to inform businesses about employment law updates, (2) to inspire businesses by giving them the tools to move forward, and (3) to demonstrate how some business owners have overcome their employment law problems, walked through the challenges imposed by this pandemic, and have taken steps to regain traction during the reopening phases of this pandemic.
Our guests will include professionals who advise businesses from an H.R., legal, and financial perspective, along with thriving business owners who will share their experiences and insights into running a successful company while complying with labor and employment law mandates during COVID-19.
