How employees react to lack of human interaction during COVID-19 pandemic
The coronavirus pandemic has pushed many people into a new workplace exclusively at home, while others go into the office one or two days a week. Some essential employees are always at the office, but the number of employees in a workspace has drastically been whittled down. WBAL-TV 11 News looks at how much people are missing their coworkers.
Celeste Amato, president of the Maryland Philanthropy Network in Hampden, said she also misses human interaction. "Since March, we've been completely remote," Amato said. Once a week, she goes into the office, and twice a month, the office administrator and accountant join her to take care of what cannot be done remotely. "We're a really small team and we're very, very collaborative. It's really routine to walk down the hall and have a quick conversation, and I think that's what we all miss the most," Amato said.
