What has the greatest impact on how you feel at work? The answer is people! Over the past two years, we have tested thousands of data points to find it’s the relationships we have at work that have the greatest predictive power to meaningful work experiences.

Why is this the case? The relationships we forge at work give us a sense of connection and belonging to others, which makes what we do that much more worthwhile. Relationships help us find greater meaning in the work we do and enhance our well-being, leading to greater engagement and productivity. But to help people connect, you first need to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable bringing their authentic self to work – and with remote work on the rise, this can be a challenge.

With the right set of tools, however, you can help create a culture (virtually and in-person) in which connection thrives and everyone can find their own workplace squad!

You will learn:

  • What our research says about why relationships are so important, especially in our modern, often-virtual workplace
  • Best practices to foster connections and meaningful relationships in your organization
  • Tools and activities that help build authentic relationships virtually and in-person
