Does your workplace bring people together? Or do you feel its design actively pushes people apart?
Loneliness at work is a growing problem, and although advances in technology make it easier than ever before to be connected to others, in reality people are feeling increasingly isolated from their peers.
IQL, in collaboration with British Red Cross and BuroHappold want to understand this problem better, and to investigate to what extent the design and layout of a workplace can impact the feeling of connectedness amongst its occupants.
‘Connecting in the Workplace’ is a new research study looking at the problem of loneliness in the workplace. It originated from the Loneliness Lab, an incubator for collective action to design out loneliness from our cities, founded by Lendlease and Collectively.
Please help with this important research by completing this survey, letting us know how you feel about your workplace, whether it be a large-scale corporation, or the comfort of your own home. The survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete, and all responses will be anonymous.
We’re honoured that our friends at Lendlease have kindly agreed to present the results of the survey to delegates at our up-coming London Conference, Workplace Trends: Towards a New Era of Work and Workplace. Register on this link to be the first to hear about designing out loneliness in the workplace.
Please take ten minutes to complete the survey here!
