 10 Ways To Destress Your Employees

Stress is an inevitable byproduct of the workplace, in the same way, that pollution is an unavoidable byproduct of many industrial processes. Like pollution, stress can wreak havoc on the environment and create a toxic situation that can be difficult to mitigate. Employees who deal with excessive stress levels at work can experience real health issues beyond the anxiety and decreased morale that is apparent side effects. Too much stress in the workplace can add up to serious consequences for employers, as well. Because employees taking too much time off or showing up for work unmotivated can take their toll on a business’s productivity. Like pollution from a factory, employers have a responsibility to clean up the effects of stress to ensure it doesn’t damage the environment inside their workplace.

Although many employers have become more aware of the harmful impact of stress on their employees and have taken steps to counteract it, some of their solutions seem a little out there. Significant multinationals and flashy startups alike have turned to extravagant solutions such as on-site massage therapy, allowing pets in the office, and breaking the bank on recreational opportunities. Yet not every employer has the resources or the luxury of making these options available to employees.

That doesn’t mean, however, that those employers just have to live with stress in the workplace. There are numerous strategies they can employ that are far less expensive or time-consuming that can be only as useful — if not more. For example, one of the simplest ways to help alleviate stress in the workplace is to allow and encourage employees to take periodic breaks away from their workstations for a quick walk to clear their heads. Just taking a break for a minute or two can help employees feel refreshed and give them vitality for their tasks. There are a lot of simple ways employers can help ease stress in the workplace, and the following guide contains many of them. Don’t let the tension build up to the point that it pollutes your workplace.
