In a nutshell

As employees from a major professional services firm hastened to work from home, the topic of isolation and maintaining social connection became a priority focus to include as part of regular D&I comms. Employees found themselves in a variety of situations – from missing the office buzz to lacking a quiet or uninterrupted workspace at home. Coronavirus impacted employees’ lives in many different ways and reinforcing this while helping people stay connected during lockdown became key.

The solution? A fortnightly email newsletter full of stories co-created with employees from across the UK and Ireland. Each story offers a glimpse into the different situation each person finds themselves in, suggesting the things that people can do to help maintain connection.

Deliberately, the content touches on themes of diversity, recently including, for example, a series of stories about the impact on people of different faiths and soon to tackle the topic of ability and disability. Each story seeks to help the reader to make new connections and overcome previous misconceptions.
