How often do we ask, ‘How are you?’ and truly mean it? The impact of genuine care on workforce, productivity, and retention cannot be overstated.

When employees feel valued and supported, they’re more engaged, motivated, and loyal. A simple inquiry into someone’s well-being can foster a culture of empathy and connection, leading to stronger teams and higher morale.

Conversely, insincere inquiries can breed distrust and disengagement. If employees perceive that their well-being is merely a checkbox for management, they’re less likely to feel valued or invested in their work. This can result in decreased productivity, increased absenteeism, and higher turnover rates.

As leaders, it’s essential to prioritize genuine care and meaningful connections in the workplace. By actively listening, showing empathy, and following through on support, we can create environments where employees thrive.

So, next time you ask, ‘How are you?’ pause and truly listen. The impact of that simple question could make all the difference.”
