Combatting Loneliness in the Construction Industry

This event has finished

Join a panel of Industry professionals from CIC, NESCAFÉ and the Lighthouse Club to explore how to combat loneliness in the construction industry.

This webinar comes following new data* from NESCAFÉ that reveals nearly half of construction workers feel lonely at work. Further insights from the research revealed that eight out of ten (79%) of construction workers agree that having opportunities to talk to colleagues around coffee breaks would make them feel less lonely. In addition, nearly all (99%) of respondents said that getting together for a coffee break is important for team morale and 94% look forward to a coffee break with colleagues.

The findings were conducted by NESCAFÉ as part of the ‘Make Chat Work’ campaign which aims to help businesses create a culture that nurtures their employees’ wellbeing through encouraging interactions, connections and engagement between workers.

Chaired by CIC Deputy Chair Dr Wei Yang, the webinar and panel discussion will discuss the recent research report, the importance of coffee breaks at work, and offer insights and tips on how businesses can help their employees’ combat loneliness in the workplace.
