Why is the word 'love' taboo in the workplace!

Belonging has emerged as a key aspect of inclusion in recent years, with one study finding that workplace belonging can lead to an estimated 56 percent increase in job performance, 50 percent reduction in turnover risk and 75 percent decrease in employee sick days. So if you were to ask yourself, "Have I ever felt loved in any of the places I have worked?", what would your answer be?

For many of us, love is not an appropriate or relevant topic in the workplace: it's too private, sentimental or "unprofessional". We are conditioned to leave that aspect of ourselves behind when we walk in the office door. And yet, the strongest sense of belonging most of us ever experience is when we love and feel loved, and this urge is one of the most fundamental things that we experience as humans. So are we missing a trick by ignoring the power of love to foster belonging in the workplace?

Join us to explore this fascinating but neglected topic and discover why love is taboo in most organisations, what difference love in action makes and how we can foster a powerful sense of belonging in the workplace through actions we can take every day, as leaders, team members and colleagues.

Leading this webinar, we are joined with David Pearson, Former Director of Global L&D for KPMG International, and moderator for our newly launched annual summit, 'Public Sector & Civil Service Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Virtual Summit 2021' accompanied with faciltator Andrea Davis, Civil Service College.
