The workplace is quickly becoming society's social hub and, for some, the only way to commune. But the quality of those interactions is often lacking, leading to an overwhelming epidemic of loneliness. This loneliness-- and its detrimental side effects, including declining physical and psychological health--impacts employees, both at work and in their personal lives.

But it doesn't have to be that way. Join us for a fast-paced exploration of how you can infuse opportunities for high-quality connection points throughout the employee experience. Well share insights about this alarming trend, discuss how it's impacting the health of well-being of your workforce and--most importantly-- share a variety of ideas that your organization can immediately implement.

In this session, attendees will learn:
1. Why positive social relationships are a fundamental human need, and the role that relationships play in shaping who are, what we think, how we feel and what we do
2. The organizational benefits of fostering meaningful employee relationship
3. How the growing loneliness epidemic is having a significant negative impact on the bottom-line for organizations due to employee's declining physical and psychological health
4. Best practices for fostering a more connected, engaged workforce through use of creative recognition strategies, events and inclusive activities
5. How to justify the need for supporting employee connectedness within an organization
