“You can’t be human in isolation.” – Desmond Tutu
And, it’s true…even in a work environment.
Isolation leads to workplace stress.
In fact, 73% of managers with high levels of workplace isolation also report high levels of workplace stress. In studying this issue of isolation in the workplace, authors Emma Seppälä and Marissa King concluded in their research that burnout at work isn’t just about exhaustion.
Burnout is also about loneliness.
They determined that increasing someone’s sense of belonging can help guard against workplace burnout.
