Updated: May 18
While everyone is bound to have an off day, in a perfect world, most employees would typically enjoy their workday. But what happens when they don’t? When it’s clear that work is starting to feel like a chore, how can you step in before the situation gets worse?
Here are 4 signs to look for, and 4 ways to support your team if you’ve noticed any of these.
1. Your employees aren’t taking vacation time
Support by: Lead by example, If you’re in leadership, use your PTO! Show your team that it’s okay to step away and prioritize themselves.
2. Your employees don’t see a future with your company.
Support by: Providing transparency into growth opportunities, and promote people from within the organization.
3. Your employees want more flexibility day to day.
Support by: Entrusting your team with more privileges around when, where, and how they do their work. Most companies granted employees more flexibility and autonomy during the pandemic. As a result, employees got a taste of what it’s like to be in control of their workday.
4. Your employees are overworked.
Support by: Checking in with employees about whether their workloads are manageable. If not, come up with a plan to prioritize tasks.
✨Talk to your team and take action using any of the solutions provided to ensure your employees have what they need to thrive. Everyone will benefit–Including you!✨
