Workplace Learning Theater - The Impending Loneliness Epidemic: Let’s Be Part of the Solution!

Former Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy argues that loneliness is a major public health risk and studies have shown that loneliness often leads to an early death and has the same health risks as smoking 15 cigarettes a day. The loneliness trend is only increasing with a full-blown crisis on our hands by 2030. Vivek says workplace and employers can help. But how can CRE and workplace be part of the solution? What is our responsibility to create connected environments to drive interaction and a healthy human experience?

Key Takeaways:

  • Identify impacts of loneliness on business and society.
  • Develop strategies for how to encourage human connection through workplace.
  • Apply human behavior insights to workplace challenges.
