One in four adults feel lonely some or all of the time and it can affect anyone at any point in time. There is no single cause of loneliness and it can happen in so many ways and take many forms.

So what can employers do to help employees who are at risk of being lonely?

  • Who is at risk? - Employees working from home either full-time or via hybrid working, those off on long-term sick, those on maternity leave and even those who are in the office.
  • What can you do? - Keep in touch! Check in with the employee, invite the employee to social events, keep them updated with what is going on, catch up for a coffee and a chat, have team meetings face to face for those working from home, pop your head in their office to see if your employee is okay.

Small things can make a big difference a simple telephone call can brighten up someone's day!
