13 – 17th June Loneliness Awareness Week

We often associate loneliness with those who live alone and do not appear to be in engaged in groups, however since the COVID- 19 outbreak, there has been reports that loneliness in the workplace is also on the rise as result of home working, a change in work patterns and reliance on technology such as emails and team’s calls.



The phrase “work family” is often used and rightly so. We spend a great deal of time with our colleagues and employers so it’s important that we feel supported, valued and part of a team.

 

How can you combat loneliness in the workplace?

•       Create a culture which actively encourages conversations around feelings.

•       Promote collaborative working where possible.

•       Allow time for working lunches etc

•       Always ask for and listen to suggestions
