Shifts in the Workplace Structure with Laura Sukurokoff

The especially effervescent Laura Sukorokoff joined us to talk about empathy in the workplace, and how it’s especially essential in these trying times with the miasma of a pandemic hovering over everyday life. “At the very best, employees are feeling stressed about this, feeling worried about this. At the very worst, they’re losing their jobs, their families,” said Laura. “Regardless of the level in an organization, people are all touched by what’s happening…”

Laura explained how, while the pandemic is disruptive and scary, it’s given us all some incredible opportunities to connect with each other. Employers and employees share a common anxiety and fear in the face of COVID-19, and that’s something that can bring us together. As Laura put it, “Regardless of the level in an organization, people are all touched by what’s happening…”

Clint and Laura also spoke on the ways that the pandemic will change how we work and how we think about work, and why it’s important for both employers and employees to understand that. “Employees can not expect to step back into the workplace and have everything be like it was before,” said Laura.

The two then went in-depth on the dynamics of relationships in the workplace command structure, and the importance of understanding and communication.

While it’s certainly a scary time that the world is going through, it’s going to be empathy and compassion for one another that gets us through it.
