Humanity at Work by Pierre Battah

Humanity at Work


Every leader has a duty to ensure their teams meet and exceed expectations and achieve strategic goals. But leaders who only focus on the bottom line risk alienating or burning out the people integral to the success of the organization.

They go the extra mile because they want to contribute to an organization that cares about them as human beings.

But what steps can leaders take to cultivate a workplace culture that is positive, engaged, and also productive? This is what CBC workplace columnist Pierre Battah tackles in Humanity at Work.
