Encourage Employees To Move Their Bodies

Encourage Employees To Move Their Bodies

To reduce stress in the workplace and increase focus and clarity, encourage your team members to do some physical activity. Physical activity such as yoga and running is also a good way for staff to learn how to pace themselves at work.

You can also set some reminders every two hours for your team members to stand up, stretch and rest their eyes by looking out of the window.

Workplace Recognition

Employees that feel they have a positive personal rapport with their management are more likely to be engaged and feel more appreciated when they or their work gets noticed.

A great manager should recognize the effort of their team members and appreciate what they have done for the company. So, tell them what a great job they have been doing, or make a small announcement about it during your weekly meetings in front of their colleagues.

Offer a Flexible Work Environment

Allow your team members flexibility by not monitoring them often, if their work is completed by specific deadlines. Remember that salary is not everything.

Letting go of rigid work schedules or allowing them to work from home when possible goes a long way to reduce stress in the workplace.

Set Clear Goals For Your Team Members

With clear goals, your team doesn't have to think about what their initial task was supposed to be. It gets them going and focus on the important task at hand, instead of doing it their way, which could lead them on the wrong track.

This also saves time, as they don’t have to redo work to fix mistakes, and gives your team members peace of mind knowing what they need to focus on and why.
