How's your co-worker?

Engage with your co-workers, team members, and colleagues during this period of social distancing.

Regardless of your industry or job title, or whether you’re at work, working from home, or not working at all—social distancing measures due to the coronavirus outbreak have likely impacted how you interact with your team.

According to the American Psychological Association, isolation can lead to feelings of anxiety, depression, and frustration.

Maintaining good relationships is key to our overall emotional well-being. As businesses find creative ways to remain productive during this time, it’s also important to find creative ways to engage with one another.

Here are a few tips:

Daily virtual team meetings: Scheduling a regular check-in to see how your co-workers are doing could boost morale and inclusion.
Make tech work for you: Technology offers many ways for us to stay connected. Maybe it means making your 3 p.m. phone call a video conference, or setting up a group chat.
Go on a walk, share your experience: Set a time to take a break and go for a walk. When you’re back, share what you observed with a co-worker.
Share only the facts: You can reduce stress about the outbreak by sharing facts from reputable sources. The CDC published information on how to reduce the stigma surrounding the coronavirus and created this fact sheet about the disease. For local updates on COVID-19, visit the Oregon Health Authority.
Create a safe space to talk: Creating a culture of well-being includes talking about mental health. It doesn’t have to be elaborate—a check-in text or sharing a cup of coffee or tea over a video app are simple ways to keep that connection going. Visit for resources.
