Workplace statistics provide deeper insight for the need to bust free from old-school management practices, styles, and habits. Employers and leaders can repair and build trust by activating new ways to reduce work related stress that often cause an escalation in drama. Current surveys collected from the Stress Management Society and other workplace research firms indicate:
- The number one cause of work-related stress is the lack of a solid plan, policy, or real support for work/life balance.
- One in five Americans report they never engage in activities to help relieve or manage their stress.
- 7 in 10 adults indicate that work related stress impacts their personal relationships.
- Work related stress is linked to 70% of visits to the doctor and for 85% of serious illnesses.
- 91% of survey respondents said that when they are overwhelmingly stressed, it also negatively impacts the quality of their work.
- More than 50% of respondents stated they often have 12-hour workdays, and an equal amount frequently skip lunch because of job stress and demand
Build trust by focusing on what can be changed to support valuable productivity. Moderation is key and permission to set boundaries with real limits. This includes the value of synchronous on and off times for teams. This simulates the work schedule of an in-person office whether people are working in-person, remote or flex, and it gives employees permission to wind down together. No more 12-hour days, or 7-days a week of “being on and available” for work, including responding to emails and text messages.
