​   Workplace Alert:  Connection is Serious Stuff

  • “The average American spends about 2.5 times more time connected with media than engaged with the real world.” -- Untethered, by Sini Ninkovic

  • “U.S. adults spend 11 hours and 27 minutes, per day, connected to media.” -- Neilson Research, 2019  (In 2020, during Covid, Neilson Research reported an increase of 1 hour per day.) 

  • The New Silicon Valley Perks:  Child Care, Financial Planning and Therapy:  "Instead of using food and foosball tables to keep workers at the office as long as possible, tech companies now seek to offer benefits for work-life balance…  Facebook, Inc… said in May that it expects much of its workforce to remain remote on a permanent basis…" -- The Wall Street Journal, 1/29/21

  • Loneliness:  Social Connection Boost Health, Even When Your Isolated: "A revealing sociological study showed that the modal number of close confidantes (i.e., people with whom one feels comfortable sharing a personal problem) Americans claimed to have in 1985 was only three. In 2004, it dropped to one, with 25% of Americans saying that they have no one to confide in. This survey suggests that one in four people that we meet may have no one they call a close friend!"  -- Psychology Today, 3/23/21
