Happening on ERE: What If Empathy Were More Than Just a Buzzword?

Empathy is one of the most (over)used buzzwords in HR. But what does it actually look like in practice? What should it look like?

These questions were recently explored in an ERE article. They’re especially timely questions for every HR professional to ponder. Indeed, there’s a lot of information on ERE, TLNT’s sister site that focuses on talent acquisition, that is important to HR. 

That’s why we’re launching “Happening on ERE,” a weekly series that will highlight recently published ERE articles to help elevate your knowledge and work as an HR professional.
