A great company culture is built and reinforced by its people - meaning you, your peers, and your teammates.

Remind your team of each other's birthdays and work anniversaries, or encourage people to come together to show support when a colleague experiences a big life event.

Most of us would love to work in a vibrant, diverse, and caring environment in which we are valued as whole people - meaning our priorities in life are as supported as our work priorities.

While there is some truth to these assumptions, it is equally true that a great company culture is built and reinforced by its people - meaning you, your peers, and your teammates.

You can remind your team of each other's birthdays and work anniversaries, or you can encourage people to come together to show support when a colleague experiences a big life event.

If you zoom out and look at the situation through an empathetic lens, you will realize that you can never really know what someone else is going through - whether you work with them every day or pass them on the sidewalk.
