Loneliness in the workplace

Loneliness has always been a “secret” problem. Most people think about loneliness occuring in people’s personal lives. However, loneliness occurs in tne workplace as well. And, it can be quite demoralizing and detrimental.

If you spend eight hours in an office during which time you can’t have a real connection, you could feel yourself disassociate from work and even suffer more burn out. Now, add in a pandemic where you may have been working remotely. Loneliness can be a heavy weight to shoulder.

Personally, because I work in healthcare, I made my way into the clinic most days during the pandemic- in part to be with other people.

Further, I have also seen that when a close colleague leaves the jobplace, many have to find a new person who they can just touch base with throughout the day. Otherwise, they feel a bit lost.

In thinking through the changing workplace, we also need to think about such things as loneliness and how we help people (team members) feel connected and part of a team. Overall, it is good for mental health and workplace goals and outcomes
