Social relationships have a big role to play in our health. To analyze this relationship, this study looked at people with occupations in the service, sales, health and military fields.

Key takeaways:

  • Social links with your colleagues at work have a significant and direct impact on your health.
  • When the organization or teams at work provide a sense of belonging and community, people have greater well- being and will feel less burnt out.
  • Social identification at the workplace has benefits to both psychological and physiological health. The health benefits are stronger for psychological health.

The mental health benefits may come from the support provided by the work group, but also the meaning and purpose that people derive from membership in social groups, the study authors suggested.
