Combating loneliness and disconnection at work through play
We spend most of our adult lives at work. Yet, relationships with co-workers often feel distant and transactional.
We can work with the same people for years and barely know their names and titles. This disconnection is making us feel more lonely and demotivated, affecting our well-being, happiness, and our productivity.
Through our experience, we found the answer in playing! Play naturally gives us the freedom to be spontaneous, creative, open, and even vulnerable.
Yet most games that allow us to play together are built for entertainment not to drive connection and are not suited for a work environment. So we created Kandel!
We asked ourselves how to help co-workers to connect in a meaningful and genuine way so we can collectively fight loneliness.
