Kindness, caring, and compassion are the watchwords at tech giant Cisco. Fran Katsoudas, the company’s Chief People Officer, says that in the past year, mental health has been at the forefront of its conversation about workplace culture. “It’s a dialogue that historically has been taboo at all companies,” she says. Recently, CEO Chuck Robbins sent an e-mail inviting employees to share personal stories around mental health issues, resulting in a company-wide meeting that she says has helped every employee feel comfortable to be their whole self at work.
