30 May How to Help Your Employees Reduce Stress While at Work
Your employees are your most valuable assets. However, they can easily become stressed and feel pressure to meet work expectations, project deadlines, and more. Helping your employees reduce stress not only helps improve their overall wellbeing, but also increases productivity and decreases overall operating costs. Plus, stress-free, happy employees are less likely to get sick as often, which translates to fewer sick days.
- Make it easy for them to access data and apps. One of the biggest complaints employees have is about slow running computers and not being able to access what they need. This is easily remedied by implementing a cloud computing/remote desktop server solution.
- Encourage breaks. Some employees will never take a break from the desks from the time they arrive, until they go home. Discourage this sort of behavior and strongly urge your employees to eat lunch away from their desks in a separate break room or outdoor picnic area, as well as to take break periods away from their desks, too.
- Offer flex time, if applicable to your operation. Giving your employees the freedom to work reduced hours, or to set their own schedules helps reduce stress levels. In cases where you must have mandatory coverage, stagger employees’ hours to give each team member an opportunity to have some flexibility with their schedule.
- Encourage employees to put their own personal touches in their work space. Allow your employees to bring in plants, pictures of loved ones, and so one, but within reason. Having a personalized work space will make them feel more relaxed and comfortable, which translates to reduced stress.
