Traumatic experiences in the workplace can arise from various sources like microaggressions from colleagues, acts of racism, sexism or misogyny, burnout, and even negative performance evaluations.
Trauma that occurs in the workplace can affect a person’s ability to be productive, be present and feel like they belong.
In this session, panelists discuss ways workplace trauma can be healed as well as how leadership can prevent it from occurring. Time off can be one of the most effective ways to allow a person to heal, especially when paired with an integrated re-onboarding process. Leadership accountability should also include supporting employees through their trauma and preventing traumatic events in the workplace.
