Burnt out employees = unproductive and unhappy team members. Being available to check in with your staff may seem like a small gesture, however it really does provide insight as to how the staff is feeling or if there are issues or concerns bubbling beneath the surface.
Take note of these concerns and make time to reflect on ways you can implement more well-being into the workflow or job design, your team will thank you.
If you are not sure where to start here are five things to consider:
1. Mental health days
2. Flexibility on what work can be done in the office or from home
3. Rotate responsibilities among the team so it’s not so heavy sided on a particular team member or department
4. Allow for sufficient breaks and lunches
5. No work emails or calls after business hours
