Fostering Authenticity in Controversy with Justworks’ Jen Fox
Play • 42 min

What does it mean to bring your whole self to work? And is that actually what we want from our people?

Jen Fox, Director of People Experience and Culture at Justworks, joins the show to share how her team meets the needs of employees and stays authentic in messy conversations—all while setting healthy boundaries. We discuss the importance of curiosity, intentionality, and calling others in rather than calling them out.
