Fostering Meaningful Relationships In A Remote World

A survey of over 2,000 managers and employees across 10 countries found that technology has become the main source of communication amongst colleagues. While it is clear that technology plays a vital role in how we work, the lack of proper social interaction can harvest isolation.

Dan Schawbel, author of “Back to Human: How Great Leaders Create Connection in the Age of Isolation,” provided some insight in how to combat loneliness.

Working in a coworking space is a good first step rather than working from home. Also allowing remote workers to lead meetings can provide them with a sense of connection and in turn, boost their productivity.

While actual work and collaboration is important, cultivating meaningful work relationships can make or break retaining talent. In fact, 60% of people said they would be more likely to stay with their company if they had more friends, particularly for younger employees. Overall, nothing can truly replace face-to-face interactions, so being present in social situations is important in combating remote working loneliness.
