Social connections are one of the greatest predictors of happiness and reduced stress. It can often be found that those who cope best are those who increase their social interactions in the middle of stress–which is often the opposite of what we actually do. Moreover, high levels of workplace stress can bring their own sets of problems–including absenteeism, low-energy, irritability, and poor performance. Helping employees foster social interactions can help decrease workplace stress and help employees deal with that stress more effectively.
