People just aren't connecting with their online peers
The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has taken millions of lives, shut down hundreds of thousands of businesses – and as it continues to prevail, its latest casualty is workplace relationships. In the latest Mental Health Index by LifeWorks, workplace relationships have "deteriorated" since the pandemic began, stoking conflicts between managers and employees. According to the study, 11% of Canadians reported that their experiences with their managers have not been positive, an increase of two percent since before the pandemic. This in turn influenced their mental health and work productivity, which resulted to 15 points below the national average.
