In this episode of the Employee Survival Guide ®, Mark discusses the recent trend by employers to provide empathy training to managers. Mark argues that this is just an attempt by companies to keep employees from jumping ship to the next employer during this employee run economy. He further argues that what employees really want is to trust their employers and stop fearing if they will be placed on a performance improvement plan or fired without a reason. Mark argues to eliminate the employment at will rule and replace it with a “just-cause” termination rule for all employees. This new rule would create more security and the type of trust where corporate empathy can really strive.
