Stress In The Workplace

Stress In The Workplace

As employees everywhere are working from home full-time, or at least much more than usual, a lot of people are experiencing high levels of anxiety and stress, with noticeable impact on their ability to focus on work.

During times of uncertainty and high stress, it’s helpful to remember that you’re not alone in how you feel. Leaders play a key role in helping to guide and support their employees in a kind and compassionate way. Everyone will deal with this situation differently, so in the context of recent events, organizations should enable and empower employees to make decisions around their own health that best suit them, whether that be work-from-home options and/or flexible schedules outside of normal hours.

 

Practice Compassionate Leadership

It’s important to keep in mind that while we’re all in this together, each person has unique life circumstances that may cause more or less acute concern. For example, we cannot know who has vulnerable family members who may be at greater risk, or who already suffers from anxiety and experiences the uncertainty and fear more acutely. Leading with compassion and empathy is more critical than ever.

Practicing self-compassion during this time is also important. Be honest about how you’re truly feeling, and remember that if you’re not feeling well, you’re not only being kind to yourself by staying home, but you’re protecting those you work with as well.
