Erica Keswin's message on humanity in the workplace is exactly what people want to hear today

Bestselling author and workplace strategist ERICA KESWIN focuses on something very old school that is a refreshingly innovative practice today: being a human being at work and in life. Keswin works with organizations across industries on how to reintroduce their humanity into the work they do and into their lives with their loved ones, and she has mountains of evidence that point to why this work is so crucial. Keswin highlights how our society has gone through waves of innovation, transformation, and recalibration. The industrial revolution was innovative; it transformed American industry and manufacturing and helped develop the wealthiest nation on the planet. Now, however, we're seeing the side effects of that innovation, and impact that we didn't account for, so we're recalibrating. We're introducing clean energy, efficient vehicles, organic foods, safer employee measures, and the list goes on. The same has happened with the information age. We innovated, we transformed, and now we're recalibrating. This is where Keswin comes in. Her research and her simplified, easy to digest, takeaways make it possible for audiences to draw the line between where they are and where they want to be. Yes, we live in a connected society--that's not changing--but it doesn't have to come at a cost of our fundamental human experiences. Her book, Bring Your Human to Work, is exactly what people want and need today.  It's the recalibration we're all looking for and craving in our professional and personal lives.
