Try to instil a stress free environment at office. Ensure that employees do not stretch beyond a certain limit at work. “Have a work culture that values employees’ time post work and helps not only balance their work life but also enjoy their personal time to the fullest,” said Priti Singh, vice president-human resources (South Asia) at Mastercard.
One does not have to be glued to the office seat. Make the best use of the technology that allows one to plug in from anywhere. “Employees can also work from home as per his/her choice, in consultation with their reporting manager. This allows them flexi work hours and a way to balance their personal and professional commitments,” said Singh.
“It is observed that some people don't avail their annual leaves, even when the organisation as well as the employees can afford to,” said Amit Sachdev, CEO and co-founder of CoinTribe. "A mandatory leave policy creates a good work-life balance for employees while ensuring organisation starts succession planning,” said Sachdev.
Spot the workaholics
A manager must try to identify the ‘yes-woman/man’ in the office. There are people who cannot say ‘no’ to work even though they have much on their plates. “While it may make them feel highly ‘wanted’, this may make them to implode beyond a certain degree of work pressure,” said Sachdev.
Make work a fun thing
Make room in the work schedule to have regular team outings. Team outings have a salutary impact on the overall team engagement as it allows team members to get to know each other beyond the daily grind, said Sachdev.
