Special 75-minute webinar helps employers boost morale and productivity

Presented by Ryan Jenkins, an internationally-recognized keynote speaker, author and generations expert

The COVID-19 pandemic and the increase in remote working has dramatically changed the daily lives of those in the workforce. It’s a change that will continue long into 2021. 

Sixty-one percent of American adults report they are lonely and, among Generation Z workers aged 18-22, 73% report they sometimes or always feel alone.  Today's workers are lonelier than ever before, resulting in a disengaged, disloyal and disenchanted workforce. 

The increase in remote working, the growing importance of inclusion and the need for better well-being at work are all reasons to understand and address loneliness at work.

Webinar participants will gain:

  • Insights into today's modern causes of loneliness.
  • Understanding of the role inclusion plays in solving loneliness.
  • Techniques to decrease loneliness and increase belonging, engagement and performance at work.
  • Best-in-class examples of organizations that have decreased loneliness and increased belonging.
  • Ability to create deep connections and unify a multi-generational team.
