Robots just don’t have the same warmth that a human being has. Is there even an app for boosting morale? In these times of remote working, it is more important than ever to find ways to connect with your team, support them and boost the positive morale in your digital workplace.
We are all experiencing the negative effects of living in a world of COVID for six months straight now and a big one involves the effect it has on depression and anxiety. According to an online article written by William Wan of The Washington Post, “A federal emergency hotline for people in emotional distress registered a more than 1,000 percent increase in April compared with the same time last year.” This spike in the above hotline, “run by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration,” is an obvious display of the negative mental health effects of quarantine including fear, economic instability, and isolation. The team of an Executive Assistant is most likely feeling the effects of isolation due to the lack of interactions he or she is used to when working alongside coworkers in the office every week. Now more than ever, finding ways to keep your team’s morale on the upside is incredibly important.
