Financial stress, relationship stress, all kinds of stress … all stress impacts employees’ abilities to focus on their jobs and do their best work. Plus, employees never really “kick it at the door.” Stress comes to work with them, and it can really hinder productivity and engagement.
Stress doesn’t make itself obvious, so it’s challenging for leaders to step in and help their people. As Rob Stewart, HR Administrator and Faculty member of Brigham Young University says, employees who are stressed, “suffer in silence.”
Leaders are supposed to help employees have the best work experience, provide motivation and manage workplace stress levels, but when the suffering cannot be heard, how can leaders arrive at solutions needed to make a difference?
In this podcast, Stewart gives guidance to leaders needing to better help employees lower their stress levels for higher engagement.
