The other statistics in this article point out what kind of impact those two facts above have on the bottom line, but I’m going to take issue with the importance they are given in this article. Don’t just make changes in your workplace culture because it’s better for the bottom line, do it because it’s the right thing to do for the human beings who work for you.

One of the real struggles when trying to bring our whole selves to the workplace, including our struggles, is that often, the details don’t need to be widely shared.

This goes for family and friendships too.… Read More
