A Lesson on Empathy from a People-First CEO

In an increasingly competitive corporate world that so often prioritizes profits over people, one CEO is flipping the script and calling attention to the importance of prioritizing stakeholders the workplace by integrating Conscious Capitalism into every facet of his business.

JeVon McCormick is no stranger to adversity. His father was a drug dealer and his mother, an orphan who became a single mother. After several stints in the juvenile justice system and barely graduating high school, McCormick didn’t give up but instead, focused on developing his career.

The now CEO of a multimillion-dollar company puts his people-first methodology into practice with innovative policies that ultimately make business flourish. This includes creating an emergency fund for employees. The Federal Reserve reports that 4 in 10 Americans would struggle to come up with $400 in an emergency, so McCormick has created a system where employees can borrow the money if in need.
