Until the pandemic, social wellbeing took a back seat behind mental health and physical wellbeing in most organisations’ thinking about wellbeing at work. Covid-19 has changed all that.
With large numbers of employees working remotely and missing out on the social dimension of work, the pandemic has revealed just how important social wellbeing is.
Loneliness has been found to have the same negative health impact as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. And recent research has shown the importance of even small-scale social exchanges, to our overall wellbeing.
This webinar will explore social wellbeing and the impact of loneliness at work and will identify some steps we can take to make our workplace environment more supportive of our social wellbeing needs.
