Prioritizing Empathy: How Personal Experiences Create Successful Teams with Eden Laurin

One of the first things a leader will look for when hiring someone is their abilities. What are their skills? What level of education did they reach? Have they worked in a particular field before? These are all excellent questions to ask — after all, realizing your vision requires having the best talents on your team. But what are we really asking for when we interview a potential hire? When you look at an applicant’s resume, there’s a specific thing that defines whether you decide that one person is better than the rest: their experiences.

Eden Laurin of Nyssa understood that a person’s experiences are critical to their performance and capacity to align with a company’s vision. As she built Nyssa, she held true to that idea to ensure that her team would be the best at their jobs while also being cared for by the company.
