Empathy is the ability to relate to the emotions or experiences of others. It is the ability to show respect for employees and co-workers and to recognize that they also have lives outside of work. The importance of empathy within a business context is an emerging trend.

To add, employees are very sensitive to this notion, whether you are “people first” or you are “profit first.” The challenge is that sometimes a company or an employer brand says they are “people first,” but the company’s actions and communications say otherwise.
