Publisher's Summary

In 1946 the World Health Organisation defined 'health' as: 'A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.' Until now, no-one has defined this third dimension to health or described strategies to deliver it. Twenty-five years after the arrival of the Internet, we are drowning in data and deadlines; we can never have imagined that our daily intake of information and achieving a healthy balance in our personal and professional lives could feel so complex and so unhealthy.
In recent years, organisations have come a long way towards promoting health literacy (on obesity, smoking, diet and exercise) and some way in acknowledging mental health issues. But acknowledging the challenges of the Internet and social media on employee and workplace health is the social element, and most have not yet begun to offer solutions. The challenges, threats and opportunities of a 'perma-connected' global economy and society could not be greater - and they will only increase.
This is the first audiobook to define what social health means in both society and the modern workplace. Here, Julia Hobsbawm argues that developing social health will help employees become more efficiently engaged with each other and their work and help employers to create workplaces that support social health and thus greater productivity. By utilising the latest thinking in health and behavioural economics, social psychology, neuroscience, management and social network analysis, Fully Connected will provide a blueprint for how to use social health to foster well-being and productivity. At every level, each person, department and organisation is struggling to find a way to navigate this challenging era; Fully Connected will be a blueprint for anyone looking to reclaim time, space and identity in our hyper-connected world.

Not What The Title Suggested...

Which character – as performed by Emma Spurgin-Hussey – was your favorite?

The narrator was a bit dry and very proper -- a cold and academic feel. Not warm or inviting even when conveying tragedy. Only the words let you know the story's content; compassionate voice modulation was absent.


Any additional comments?

By the title, I though this book was about the disconnectedness of humanity relating to the stress and overwhelm of feeling alone. I anticipated the feel-good assurance that we are all connected and realizing such can lighten our load. However, this book promotes social health. Not what was expected.
