This company was founded on the belief that empathy and respect should be at the core of every business decision. So often, however, these two core principles are forgotten. We want to change that.
Empathy: noun \ em·pa·thy \ ˈem-pə-thē \ the ability to understand and share the feelings of others.
At ALT HR, we believe empathy is about being open to the concept that what someone else experiences, is not the same as what you experience - that the thoughts, feelings, and experiences of others are different than your own.
We strongly believe that the simple act of showing empathy and respect to every employee mitigates your risk, builds your reputation as an employer, and shows that even through the hardest times, you still have a sense of humanity. We want to make sure your employees see the best in you during the hardest moments.
"THE MOST BASIC OF ALL HUMAN NEEDS IS THE NEED TO UNDERSTAND AND BE UNDERSTOOD. THE BEST WAY TO UNDERSTAND PEOPLE IS TO LISTEN TO THEM."
Empathy creates an environment where people feel understood and listened to. Utilizing empathy and transparency during difficult conversations is the difference between people feeling heard and understood, even if they do not like the outcome, and people feeling angry and resentful.
