Last year, 3 in 5 (60%) of people in the UK reported feeling lonely at work.
It’s a worrying statistic, isn’t it?
The average person spends more time at work than on any other daily activity and whilst most jobs and work environments increase the opportunity for connection with others, people can still feel lonely.
You don’t have to be alone to feel lonely.
Feeling lonely can have a negative impact on your mental health. The Co-op and New Economics Foundation found that loneliness costs UK employers over 2.5 billion a year, from increased sick days and time off to care for others, to lower productivity and staff retention levels. Loneliness doesn’t just affect individuals – it’s bad for business.
As COVID-19 has brought many of our working lives into the virtual world, the question of how to keep mentally healthy, resilient, and retain positive connections is a key topic.
In this webinar you will learn:
How people can feel lonely in the workplace, what causes loneliness?
Why we should take loneliness at work seriously
How to recognise loneliness
