“It also supports this concept of business resiliency, when you can start to treat your employees as arguably the greatest asset an organization has,” says Sean Kennedy, vice president and general manager of health and life sciences at Salesforce on a recent episode of The Daily Scoop Podcast.
Over the last few years, avoiding burnout and focusing on employee wellness has become top of mind for agency leaders. Kennedy says being mindful of these two things will be paramount to ensuring workforce satisfaction.
