The Chat Interviews Patsy Doerr

The Chat recently interviewed Generation W speaker Patsy Doerr, Global Head of Corporate Responsibility and Inclusion at Thomson Reuters, on the importance of not only choosing the right team, but empowering that team to make a difference in your company.  Her tips:

  • Engage Employees:  It is important for all employees to bring their full selves to work.
  • Promote Diversity & Inclusion:  Casting a wide net provides best results for attracting and keeping top talent.
  • Show Appreciation is Critical:  Management should provide feedback for performances–not only in private, but publicly.
  • Encourage Talent to Take Risks:  Ensure management teams are backing that encouragement.
