Join Workplace Healing LLC co-founders, Mindy Corporon and Lisa Cooper, as they share innovative techniques to healing in the workplace. We all experience life disruptions such as divorce, marriage, family challenges, loss of a loved one. When an employee or co-worker experiences a life disruption, our teams need practical tools and guidelines on how to respond immediately. In this 50-minute presentation, Mindy and Lisa will provide an overview of their Corporate H.O.P.E. Workshop.

Key takeaways will include:

  • Importance of awareness and empathy in the workplace
  • Tangible “do’s and don’ts” when an employee returns to work
  • Significance of purpose in today’s talent recruitment and employee retention needs
