Leaning Into Empathy

Air Products’ second annual Week of Inclusion theme focused on "Leaning Into Empathy." According to the 2020 State of Workplace Empathy report, more than 90% of employees believe empathy is more important than ever in the workplace. Empathy is the ability to understand and share the feelings of another -- sometimes colloquially referred to as "standing in someone else's shoes." When we make the effort to "step into the shoes" of another person, we can begin to see things from their perspective and increase our understanding of challenges they may face. This can help to reset the way we work with others and collaborate more effectively.
