About the book.

Today’s workers are lonelier than ever before resulting in a disengaged, disloyal, and disenchanted workforce.

Sixty-one percent of American adults report they are lonely and among Generation Z workers aged 18-22, 73 percent report sometimes or always feeling alone. The increase in remote working, the growing importance of inclusion, and the need for better wellbeing at work are all reasons to understand and address loneliness at work.

In this book, readers will discover what’s causing today’s loneliness, the role inclusion plays in solving it, and several ways leaders can decrease loneliness among their teams (and themselves) while increasing belonging, engagement, and performance at work.
