Empathetic businesses care about their work. They make better products. They have better customer service. They care about employees.
This is incredibly true.
If you’re respected by your employer, you thank them by performing to the best of your ability. When given tasks by my boss that I essentially own and am consulted on, my work is exponentially better. It’s not a conscious choice to do better work, but rather a subconscious passion that kicks in and produces better results.
