Webinar Presented by ITA Group and Chadwick Martin Bailey
According to the former surgeon general, Vivek Murthy, “The world is suffering from an epidemic of loneliness.”
“If we cannot rebuild strong, authentic social connections, we will continue to splinter apart—in the workplace and in society.”
According to Gallup and other studies, people with strong social connections at work show greater productivity, higher-quality work and improved health.
In other words, physical proximity to your colleagues alone doesn’t mean you’ll feed off their brainpower or work ethic. It’s important to encourage community and value warm, friendly and understanding relationships between people.
Empathy, in particular, may be a protective factor against burnout and work exhaustion, studies suggest. But empathy also helps team members feel safe to take risks and be vulnerable in front of one another, which can lead benefits like more diverse ideas from teammates and increased revenue.
What can companies like yours do to combat workplace loneliness and successfully foster meaningful human connections? Find out in our on-demand webinar, presented in partnership with Chadwick Martin Bailey and WorldatWork.
