New Webinar – From Loneliness to Connection and Belonging: How This Sits at the Heart of Employee Wellbeing as Hybrid Models Become the Norm


As we all adjust to new models of working, employers have a responsibility to acknowledge employees’ challenges – in particular as they relate to loneliness and connection.

The wholesale shift to remote working triggered by the coronavirus pandemic and subsequent adoption of hybrid working have increased our reliance on technology. But even though technology can be a great facilitator of human connection, it’s also associated with growing feelings of loneliness. What you might call being technolonely.

To understand more about how you can help colleagues deal with these challenges, join us on Wednesday 29 June, from 12.00pm to 1.00pm for our free to attend Lunch & Learn Make A Difference webinar, sponsored by SilverCloud: From Loneliness to Connection and Belonging: How This Sits at the Heart of Employee Wellbeing as Hybrid Models Become the Norm.

Treading a fine line

The webinar picks up the “loneliness” theme of this year’s Mental Health Awareness Week – ensuring we keep this crucial conversation going, and keep turning talk into action, right across the year.

Tune in to learn about:

  • What we know about the link between connection and belonging and employee wellbeing and mental health
  • How you define and spot the signs of the loneliness and how it impacts individuals, teams, organisations and society
  • Practical and actionable tips to tackle loneliness, empower employees and foster a sense of connection and belonging in a hybrid world of work

We make our webinars as interactive as possible, so it’s also a great opportunity to share ideas and tips with peers from across the sector.

Featuring expert speakers:

  • Andy Holmes, former Global Head of Wellbeing, Reckitt
  • Ryan Hopkins, Global Workplace of the Future Lead, Finastra
  • Dr Jorge Palacios, Senior Digital Health Scientist, SilverCloud
  • Dr Carolyn Lorian, Head of Clinical Transformation, SilverCloud

The content is designed for C-Suite, Wellbeing & Benefits Leaders, HR, Learning & Development, Culture & Transformation Leaders, Talent, Engagement and Communication Leaders, Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Leaders as well as Wellbeing Champions from across your organisation.

In other words, anyone who is responsible for the wellbeing of colleagues and wants to ensure they are providing the right support both now and in the future.

We look forward to seeing you there. If you can’t make the date/time, go ahead and register anyway and we’ll send you the recording a few days after the session.
