The Center for Workplace Mental Health's Director Darcy Gruttadaro was recently interviewed for Workforce Magazine on workplace loneliness.
"'Employees without close or supportive relationships at work are more likely to feel disconnected from their jobs and that can affect their performance,' according to Darcy Gruttadaro, director of the Center for Workplace Mental Health. The Center is a program of the American Psychiatric Association."
"'That’s the cost of loneliness and social disconnection,' Gruttadaro said. 'There is a direct correlation between loneliness and productivity and absenteeism.'"
