Stress in the workplace has existed forever, but has continually been on the rise. Most of the increase in stress is due to higher workloads and the increasing difficulty in finding work-life balance.
The world has changed a lot in recent decades and Millennials are reporting that they are feeling more stress than their baby-boomer counterparts, and the stress they are feeling is making them less productive at work.
Check in with your employees and note whether they are feeling overwhelmed, challenged the right amount, or not enough.
Being that people spend so many hours a week at work, modern workplaces should make it a priority to promote healthy and realistic workloads and challenges, while also maintaining a sense of enjoyment.
