Why connection matters

Ensuring that we have strong ties and links to the people in our lives is vital for our mental health and wellbeing. Social groups like friends and family can boost feelings of belonging, purpose and community, as well as help reduce feelings of isolation and anxiety, especially during difficult times.

Workplaces also play a crucial role in providing a sense of belonging. They give workers a space to meet (virtually or in person), to collaborate and support each other and strive for success together. Plus, there’s the social aspect of work that helps to bolster feelings of connection between workers, like chatting over a cup of tea in the kitchen or holding a trivia session over Zoom.

We’ve put together this collection of resources to assist you build, maintain and repair connections, whether they be personal or work related.

“We have seen a positive impact since staff undertook SuperFriend’s training. People have started to connect. There’s been a shift towards a psychologically safe workplace culture – people understand that health and wellbeing is something that we are serious about. That’s it OK to ask for help and the importance of looking out for others.”

— Lisa D’Andrea, HR Manager Hansen Yuncken

“Over 1000 of our members have attended the Retiring Well program. Previously, people didn’t give much consideration to the psychological aspects of retirement but this program gets people talking about it in their workplace and at home. It is really worthwhile. The feedback from members is always really positive: attendees talk about how interesting it was and that it’s great to see we’re not just looking at the financial side of retirement.”

— Josephine Casabene, Client Management Officer at Equip
