This research paper reviewed a wide range of compassion literature to identify compassion attributes and Roffey Park’s Compassion in the Workplace model from previous studies. This paper aimed to validate the model by conducting focus groups and a survey, of which over 500 employees and managers responded to. Following their analysis, the respondents’ answers suggest a fit with the model criteria. The Compassion in the Workplace model provides a useful framework for leaders to develop compassion within the workplace. The questions from the survey were also used to develop a psychometric self-assessment tool called the Compassion at Work Index. This tool can be used by employees to compare their results to the norm group and gain some practical tips on how they could improve their compassion in relation to the five attributes from the Compassion in the Workplace model.
