How do you cultivate meaningful moments of celebration in the workplace in a way that respects the diversity of cultures and traditions that make up the beautiful tapestry of your people? At one point or another, most of us have done the potlucks, the ugly Christmas sweaters and the Secret Santa gift exchanges.

In the most recent blog from Convene titled More People Feel a Sense of Belonging at Work Than Their Neighborhood or Place of Worship - they look at the recent statistics from EY on how people view the workplace:
According to a new study from professional services firm EY, more people get that sense of belonging from their jobs than any other source, outside of their own homes.
The survey, which looked at over 1,000 employed adults in the U.S. , found that 34% feel the greatest sense of belonging at work. While this is behind home (62%), it was significantly more than physical neighborhood (19%) and place of worship (17%).

There's some hand-wringing going on over on LinkedIn. It seems the "Camelot" of business communities is going through some growing pains. They're not immune to the messiness of "work life" and "personal life" mixing things up.
In June of this year, Global Workplace Analytics and FlexJobs put out a new report that shows telecommuting workers increased by 115%. That’s about 3.9 million people working from home or almost 3% of the total U.S. workforce, working from home at least half the time in 2015, an increase from 1.8 million in 2005.

Click through for a quick primer on how the blurring of the two worlds isn't necessarily a bad thing, and why it may signal an opportunity for deeper and more meaningful "virtual workplace" connections that make business better, not worse.
