Updated: May 18, 2023

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!
