Loneliness: It’s Not Just Personal
Session Leader: Dr. Jennifer Deal
Wednesday November 17
4:00pm – 5:45pm GMT / 11:00am – 12:45pm ET / 8:00am – 9:45am PT
Loneliness isn’t just an individual human concern, it is a workforce sustainability and effectiveness problem because it is part of the engagement/connection equation organizations have identified as critical to employee effectiveness. Between remote work, increases in anxiety, and general instability, there are a multiplicity of risk factors for workplace loneliness – and a similar number of resulting effects on the effectiveness of your staff. Organizations have an opportunity to take action now.
In this session, we will explore and discuss:
- the effects of loneliness on workplace effectiveness
- the multiplicity of risk factors for workplace loneliness, and
- future organizational considerations to improve workforce sustainability and effectiveness.
