Looking for other ways to reduce stress at work?
• Take time to ask employees what would make them more productive at work. Many employees are never given the chance to voice their opinions. Stress is reduced when management spends time listening to employees.
• Use creativity to break the monotony of everyday workplace routines. Try a stand-up meeting where everyone remains standing during the staff meeting. Celebrate untraditional holidays such as Ugly Tie Day or Clean off Your Desk Day.
• Let staff know they are appreciated. Write personalized thank you notes and attach to paychecks. Give out awards such as the “Good and Plenty Award” for a person who always has lots of good ideas…along with a Good and Plenty candy bar of course.
Clark, a frequent presenter at conferences looking to help employees reduce stress, frequently hides gifts under conferee’s chairs. “People feel rushed and frazzled trying to balance work related duties with holiday preparations. Sometimes just getting a gift like a new Pencil Computer gives people something to smile about,” she says.
