How to rebuild your social connections at work
Video conferencing and the involvement of employees in the one and half a meter society.
Meetings have some kind of social function. Healthy social connections deliver advantages for the company or the bigger organisation. It promotes involvement and loyalty of the employee.
Unfortunately, the social aspect of working has been put to the test during the pandemic. But there is some good news.
By using the different possibilities of video conferencing, meeting organisers can revive their social contacts during this distancing period. Besides, it is proven that video conferencing not only improves the effectiveness of a meeting but also could have consequential effects, like higher productivity and involvement of the employees.
Why social connectivity is so important at your workspace
People have a natural desire for a feeling of togetherness.
It brings happiness and willingness to participate in the success of the company.
For both employees and companies they work for, a healthy social connection at work offers some advantages:
– more creativity and problem solving
– higher productivity
– higher loyalty
– less employee turnover
The lack of social connectivity is a problem in times of distance and self-isolation, a time where no spontaneous meetings and conversations in the hallway are held. Scientific research shows that video meetings are effective replacers for those informal conversations. It can recover the togetherness and connectedness that people miss during social distancing.
According to Dr. Joseph A. Allen, professor industrial and organisation psychology, his face-to-face and video meetings are the same regarding effectiveness and happiness. Video meetings offer more extra information in form of non-verbal signals and verbal dialogues. Those non-verbal signals, sympathetic look, a simple hand gesture are crucial for creating social connectedness.
