Offer a Flexible Work Environment

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.

  • Poor balance of personal and work lives
  • Job insecurity
  • Low salaries,
  • Excessive workloads,
  • Poor peer support,
  • Limited prospects for growth or advancement and;
  • The task at work that is not engaging or challenging.

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.

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.

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.

Excessive stress can interfere with your employees' productivity and performance and can also impact their physical and emotional health. This will then eventually affect relationships among colleagues and home life too.
