WHY DO YOUR EMPLOYEES
NEED DIVORCE SUPPORT
The pandemic caused a massive spike in divorces, an increase of 13.6% from the previous year. Managers need the training to be able to support their employees through challenging times. Managers are stressed when faced with these situations and are unable to show authentic empathetic leadership as a result. They need the appropriate training. Human issues like relationship breakdowns, family violence, and stress are now openly discussed in the workplace, so managers must know what to say.
