Ryan Jenkins: Combating loneliness at work

Join Bruce this week for his conversation with Ryan Jenkins, speaker and co-author of Connectable: How Leaders Can Move Teams from Isolated to All In. During their time together, Ryan shares how he conducted his Gen Z research and loneliness project, along with some of the results. (Spoiler alert: Gen Z is the loneliest! But not by much.) And social snacking...is a thing! Additionally, they explore what worker loneliness means for leaders and employers, the difference between connection and convenience, and the concept of "beneficiaries of labor".
