Today’s workers are more stressed, less loyal and technology dependent. While digital platforms and devices have supported remote working, powered the gig economy and enhanced our collaboration, they have simultaneously made the workplace less productive and made workers feel increasingly isolated. Countless research studies conclude that employees are yearning for the in-person interactions and relationships that give us a sense of belonging and meaning in our work lives, yet we continue to become increasingly dependent on tech. In a study in the Harvard Business Review, one professor found that a single face-to-face request is 34 times more successful than an email. This is but one example of how by working human, we can also work more successfully.
