Lower Stress To Increase Productivity
Job Fulfillment and Satisfaction = Increased Productivity and Retention
A number of organizations are facing cost-cutting challenges, which means finding ways to do more with less. Unfortunately, the result can often add stress to employees who are asked to carry more responsibilities, which can adversely affect productivity. In these cases, it’s more critical than ever to take care of your people who are picking up the slack.
As managers and supervisors, we can do a better job of prioritizing. Lighten the load by identifying tasks or projects that can be put on hold for now. Set an example by your commitment not to transfer your stress level to your team. Despite difficult economic times, you can create an environment in which employees are inspired and motivated to come to work.
