Nurau Insights

Having friends at work is one of key predictors of being both productive and engaged at work. At the same time, managers and bosses are more likely to say they are lonely at work. 

Why are managers more lonely? What are the possible consequences of this loneliness? What are some potential solutions that target managerial loneliness? In this episode, we introduce one of the core problems that drives what we do at Nurau: loneliness amongst managers. 

We discuss why this is a crucial problem facing the modern workforce that is increasingly isolated and the impact lonely managers can have on their team. Diving into the various studies that look at this issue, we give you a sweeping overview of the research so far and set the stage for the subsequent episodes that explore the many facets that comprise mental health at the workplace. .
