Meet Kendra Blacksher, an Audit Senior Manager at RSM and Mother of Four was originally published on Firsthand.
Today, the best workplaces understand that committing to helping employees achieve a healthy work-life balance is an important part of building a vibrant team culture. And to no one is this commitment more welcome than to parents balancing careers with the charms and challenges of parenthood. Working parents, as well as other employees, want and need flexibility, allowing them to be fully present both in their careers and with their families, friends, and loved ones.
In the video below, you’ll meet someone who embodies the role of nurturer—at home and at work. Kendra Blacksher is an audit senior manager at RSM US LLP, the nation’s leading provider of audit, tax, and consulting services to middle market businesses; she is also a mother of four. Kendra speaks of the lessons of motherhood: that every child is an individual with their own needs and desires, and wants to be seen as “the only one.” She goes on to explain that understanding different personalities and perspectives—and making sure that each of her children feels embraced, challenged, motivated, and cared for—is brought into her collaboration with clients.
Watch Kendra speak about all this and more in the video below.
