Top Four Ways to Reduce Stress in the Workplace

Stress in the workplace is a serious problem that can have dire consequences on the health and performance of an employer. Luckily, there are ways to reduce stress in the workplace, and many of these ways are easy and low cost. If your workers are currently stressed out by their workload, here are four easy things they can do to calm down.

Set Clearly Defined Goals

Do you set goals for your workers? If you don’t, you may be contributing to their level of stress. When employees have clearly defined goals to work towards, they can plan their schedule and allocate time accordingly. Goals also help workers focus more and feel like part of a team. With the help of your employees, try setting a few tangible goals at the beginning of each week, quarter or month. When your employees know what to expect and what is expected of them, they will be less likely to be stressed out.  

Avoid Multitasking

Many workers resort to multitasking to get work done, but in reality, multitasking can decrease a worker’s productivity. When a worker focuses on multiple tasks, they can only devote a certain amount of energy, time and intellect to each task. Since the worker cannot give their full attention to each project, their performance will suffer and so will your business. By encouraging workers to take their time and focus on one project at a time, you can reduce their stress level and help them become more focused.  

Take Breaks

Everyone skips breaks now and then, especially when a major deadline hangs over the head of the team. This is understandable, but many studies have actually shown that workers who don’t take breaks tend to be less productive than their counterparts. By taking brief breaks throughout the day, workers can recharge and refocus their efforts. Multiple breaks can also help prevent burnout and fatigue.
