ABOUT THE EVENT
Work is where people spend most of their waking hours. It is said that 70 percent of workers do not feel emotionally attached to their job, colleagues, and organization. This phenomenon is called employee disengagement.
There are many reasons why people are disengaged at work. For example, repeated criticism that one is slow or that one is quiet, or that one is inexperienced can cause a person to feel discouraged. Or it can be personal circumstances at home, a divorce or death of a loved one. How can one be resilient when challenged by such circumstances?
Adversities, criticisms or unusual situations can cause some people to withdraw to themselves. They become lonely. Loneliness is when the person feels subjectively alone and disconnected from others. Loneliness at work is often overlooked because people do not talk about it. When people feel lonely, they disconnect themselves emotionally from their work, from their colleagues and their surroundings. It is normal to feel lonely now and then but staying this way long-term is not.
Being aware of one’s loneliness at work and knowing how to deal with loneliness is key to building workplace resilience, feeling engaged, and finding meaning in work. In this talk, learn specific actions that team leaders can take to overcome the loneliness obstacle in their organisation.
