Getting Along With Your Coworkers Could Improve Your Health

April 20, 2017

Do you attend company potlucks or get together with colleagues after work? A recent meta-analysis found that having social links with your coworkers may help improve your overall health. Having social ties at work may also help reduce your stress levels and risk for burnout on the job.

The study, published in the journal Personality and Social Psychology Review, looked at more than 19,000 people from 15 countries in many types of employment.

“This study adds to the growing body of literature that shows we generally feel better and have a greater sense of well-being when we have a sense of community,” says Richard Murachanian, M.D., of Ocean Medical Center.
