The holidays are usually a busy time for almost everyone. Business owners, managers and employees alike may experience the hectic and fast-paced environment that ensues near the end of the year.
Supporting and taking care of your team members during the stressful holiday season can directly have an impact on future effort and attitude. Rather than dreading the festivities, take this time to strengthen your company’s culture and inspire for the year ahead.
Here are a few ways to make sure you’re taking care of your team.
1. Provide Schedule Flexibility
Offering a more flexible work schedule may result in happier and more satisfied employees. Allowing your team to adjust their daily hours, as responsibilities permit, may make scheduling conflicts easier to handle. Consider implementing earlier, or later, start times depending on your team’s needs. Some managers have even started scheduling in four-day work weeks to decrease the stress of juggling work and holiday planning.
2. Offer Remote Work Options
As of 2020, remote work options have become a popular way to keep employees happy and satisfied. Do your team members have the means to work from home occasionally? Telecommuting cuts back on travel time which, in turn, gives employees extra hours to spend with their families. This option can also allow for a greater work/life balance, creating more satisfied employees.
3. Reduce Workload (when possible)
While this time of year can be busy for most businesses, make sure your employees aren’t overloaded with responsibilities. Looking to implement a large project or changes to your workplace? It may be beneficial to hold off on any extra tasks or assignments. See something you can do to reduce your team’s workload? Even the smallest of favors make a difference.
4. Give a Gift
Gift giving is a great way to show your team you appreciate their hard work and dedication during such a stressful time. Consider gifting time off or gift cards. A little goes a long way in the appreciation department, especially this time of year.
5. Foster Self-Care and Well-Being
It’s important to make sure that your team members are taking care of themselves, both mentally and physically during any stressful period. Encourage employees to take breaks, reset, or take a walk. Bring in resources to help manage stress, emotions or other factors that may play a role in your team’s well-being. Go the extra mile to make sure your team is staying on top of their overall health. This helps to avoid burnout by the time the new year rolls around.
