Maybe you thought it could never be possible: actually missing your coworkers. In the times of a coronavirus pandemic, a lot of folks are realizing there’s so much we take for granted, including our colleagues. We’re feeling it here at AirTalk too. Several of us producers haven’t seen Larry Mantle in person in over a week, and it’s killing us! 

Like many other workplaces, we’re holding meetings via phone and communicating through email and Slack. We’re really lucky we have the technology we need to do that and can continue fulfilling many of our duties. But it’s not the same as face-to-face contact. According to the New York Times, people who work from home can often be more productive, but they can lose out on creativity and innovation. Beyond that, people create some of the strongest bonds with the ones they work with.

Today on AirTalk, we want to hear from you. What are you missing most about being at work with your coworkers? Is communication more difficult, even with technology? How are you staying connected to them? Join the conversation and tell us who you’re missing by calling 866-893-5722.
