How much is human connection really worth?

by Enboarder | Case Studies

You don’t know what you’ve got ‘til it’s gone!

The office of 2019 was a bustling place, often seen as a barrier to freedom or even as a prison on sunny, warm days. “I could work so much better if I had fewer distractions,” and “I want the freedom to work from home!” were common refrains. We didn’t know what we had.

Until recently, it was found that only one-third of employees reported wanting to return to work, but our latest research has uncovered that the tide is quickly turning.

The reason? Employees are really starting to feel the impact of the lack of genuine human connection over these past couple of years.

To discover more about the business value of human connections in the workplace, we surveyed 1,000 full-time, U.S.-based employees to understand how much human connection means to them, how connection affects their office and work life in 2022, and how we can tear down the roadblocks and facilitate an environment of connection to help our employees truly flourish.
