Global Report – I miss you! A new wellbeing crisis on the horizon
  • New global research from Inspiring Workplaces Group discovered that:
    • We miss or need social human interaction – 88%
    • We are struggling even more than before with creating boundaries between work and home life – 74%
    • The events of the past two years have created a binary impact on wellbeing with almost the same number of respondents reporting a positive and negative impact on their wellbeing
    • 98% of the IW community feel that they can be their true selves – fostering psychological safety within their organisations

London and New York: April 5, 2022 – New global perspectives report from Inspiring Workplaces highlights the twin threats to wellbeing from a poor work:life balance and inadequate human interaction caused by the pandemic. In fact, 74% of respondents said they are struggling to maintain boundaries between home and work. And almost nine out of ten (88%) of respondents said they miss or need social human interaction from colleagues or customers.

The report entitled: I miss you! A new wellbeing crisis on the horizon, is published almost two years to the day when much of the world was first locked down. The report draws its responses from the Inspiring Workplaces global community. It has insights that will help give employees a voice and leadership a roadmap of areas to consider as we continue to navigate our way through the seismic changes caused by the pandemic. The most encouraging response in the report shows that 98% of the Inspiring Workplaces community feel that they can be their true selves at work – fostering psychological safety within their organisations.

Five themes for creating an inspiring place to work
Respondents were also asked “What one thing can your employer do to help you this year?”

We consolidated the verbatim responses into five key themes below:

  1. Culture of wellbeing
  2. Community
  3. Structure
  4. Employee Voice
  5. Gratitude

Within the report we provide context to each of these themes, plus advice and opinion on how to approach them in 2022 and beyond.
