2021 is likely to be another year full of major transitions. And while it’s too soon to say for sure what effect the pandemic will have on divorce rates, it’s clearly on the rise.
Life's second-highest stressor is divorce. It impacts family, finances, career, physical and emotional health, and sense of belonging and community. It also affects the bottom line for companies, increasing absenteeism, distractedness, stress-related illnesses, and accidents on the job. It’s clear that supporting employees in their personal–not just professional lives–enables them to live well and perform at a higher level. So what can you do to help?
Join Pilar Prinz, co-founder of Divorce in Good Company and the Corporate Divorce Wellness Toolkit, as she unpacks the 2021 workplace trend in which employers are shifting from managing the employee experience to managing the life experience of their employees as she looks through the lens of divorce.

We feel overwhelmed and under-equipped as we juggle work-from-home, uncertainty, manifestations of systemic racism, and our own fluctuating stress levels. However, many co-workers and managers feel unsure of what to do or say when others go through pain, tossing out tired clichés or defaulting to awkward silence.
The way your organization supports people in the midst of hard times matters–it drives retention, helps to attract talent, alters brain chemistry, and lets people know that you truly care. What if you could feel empowered to competently care for those yourself and those around you at work?
In this session, workplace empathy expert Liesel Mertes will introduce you to the importance of empathy at work and give you actionable skills to connect during hard times.
