Office chat without the work talk

  • February 19, 2021
 

What do you miss about the office?

I miss coffee chats. Laughing together. Having a quick catch-up on what’s happening in people’s lives. Seeing my team form easy friendships. Human connection. There’s so much, if I really think about it.

It’s tough thinking about what we’ve lost from all our relationships - including work ones.

When human connection is limited to whoever delivers your post it’s no surprise loneliness in a time of Covid is all too real.

So, is there anything we can do about it? I think so!

Let’s bring the social back into our virtual connections!

Wouldn’t it be nice if we had a social virtual chat where the goal wasn’t work related at all? Just a catch-up with friends and colleagues to check in.

Sure, there’s work to be done, and work conversations matter. But I’m missing those casual social interactions, so virtual ones must be worth a try.
