Overcoming Employees Loneliness
26 August 2018
Helping employees overcome their feelings of isolation is important because loneliness is potentially very harmful to health. It can lead to lower immunity, high blood pressure, raised cortisol level and increased rates of depression and anxiety. Employees who feel isolated may become unwell, come to believe they aren’t worthy of attention and develop strong feelings of dissatisfaction with the organisation. This in turn can reduce employee commitment and increase their chances of leaving.
