Reducing Stress Levels

Date: 06/23/2007 | Category: Business | Author: developers

Today, employee productivity is high on most employer agendas.  Unfortunately, high productivity can often lead to employees that are overworked and stressed, which in turn can lead to burnout – another, more serious issues, in and of itself. 

What can you do to keep your employee productivity levels high without sacrificing the well-being of your employees?  Here are a couple of suggestions:

  • Give them greater control over their job.  Studies have shown that increasing employee control improves employees’ ability to handle their workload without compromising their productivity.
  • Keep them in the loop.  Be sure that you communicate to your employees any changes in the company and what your expectations of them are.
  • Practice flexibility.  If an employee makes a reasonable request, grant it. They will focus better knowing that their problem has been solved.
