Isolation, loneliness and feelings of disconnection from others are a growing source of mental health challenges for individuals as well as a source of employee burnout, disengagement and low productivity at work.
The solution to motivating employees to return to the office after COVID-19 is to build a sense of community, connection and belonging at workplaces. The key is to give people the knowledge and tools of how and why connection and belonging promote engagement, trust, team-building and high-performance. At the same time, we need to acknowledge the major structural changes that have occurred since COVID-19 began.
