5 tips on how to be happier at work

Published by

Four out of five staff admit to feeling burnt out and 73% expect their stress levels to increase in the near future, according to new research from Workfront, a cloud-based modern work management tool for businesses.

With these problems having a direct impact on work-life balance, morale and productivity, it's imperative for businesses act fast and decisively. To mark World Wellbeing Week this week (June 24th-28th), Workfront has compiled a list of 5 practical tips on reducing work-related stress.

 

Foster transparency and open communication

*

57% of workers cited a 'lack of communication and visibility into the work done by others' as a major pain point leading to stress in the workplace. Businesses can counter this by introducing work management tools that promote visibility on the progress of work being done and encouraging a workplace culture of transparency and honesty.

 

Ensure each project has a plan

*

57% of workers stated that poor planning and lack of organisation was a major stressor. Employers need to make sure employees are equipped with the tips to do proper planning ahead of starting a project.

 

Reward employees with time off

*

Outside of financial rewards, 60% of employees want more time off. If employees are working overtime on a specific project and out of the normal work hours, it would be a good idea to offer them time in lieu to ensure they’re enjoying a solid work life balance.

 

Empower employees in the decision-making process

*

44% of workers want more involvement in decision making to ensure they get their say and can help steer the project to ensure they are successful. Getting their input early on can ensure any worries they have can be minimised early on.

 

Have clear processes in place

*

23% of workers stated that a lack of standard processes for work increased their stress levels. Furthermore, 42% of office workers put in six or more hours of overtime every week because of bad work processes. Employers must ensure that clear processes are in place and that they are communicated to all employees.
