Prevent stress and fatigue due to work pressure

by michaljones / March 2, 2009 4:21 PM PST

Due to the extreme work pressure and hectic working schedules the employees of my company frequently suffer from stress and fatigue and because of which the output of my company gets trembled. I want to exterminate the stress concerning problems in my organization. Any help that you can give me with respect to stress management for my employees would be appreciated.

Mayb hire more people ...

to spread the workload? Or organize the work better, with or without a better information system (that heavily depends on the kind of work being done in your company).

I'm afraid a course in yoga and meditation (paid by you and during work hours, of course) isn't the speedy solution you want either.

That will lower stress levels and increase morale almost immediately.

Oftentimes the work atmosphere
by Angeline Booher / March 3, 2009 12:35 AM PST

...... begins at the top. "The Boss" who exudes confidence in his product AND in those who work under him/her finds that attitude flows through the organization.

If the stress is fairly new, and not related to fear of the impact of this economy on them, it is possible there is one person down the chain of command who is not a good people person, and has caused disruption in those around him/her. That can throw a cog in the entire organization.

I know of a company with about 3,000 employees where the morale was low, thus the productivity was the same. The new co,[any president spent time in the halls and outside offices stopping employees and asking them about the department, what the mission was, how they thought it was being achieved, etc. Some department heads were not able to give knowledgeable answers. fter several months he separated the wheat from the chaff, and the morale and productivity rate rose dramatically.

I've read abut some workplaces benefitting from shared jobs/positions which work very well with working mothers. Some went to longer work days/shorter work weeks. Creative scheduling.

There have been some great suggestions made in the responses that do involve spending some money on your part. Day Cares on company property do well.

Perhaps your own employees are a good source for answers.

Exercise programs are popular and help with stress
by Ziks511 / March 3, 2009 6:45 AM PST

lots of people do it on their lunch break, or before or after work.

Communications Seminars for Managers and regular employees also help, but the best thing is to try to set a cheerful, encouraging and helpful tone from the top down.

That's what the video In Search of Excellence was all about, and it still makes sense to me.

The deleted post was one that replied specifically to then OP's post, with a link to a specific web site relating to this subject.

Both the OP and the poster of the reply joined within a day of each other, so I suspect this was collusion.

I'm locking this, to avoid any further posts of the same nature.

For those who posted with the deleted post as the parent, sorry but those posts were deleted as well, but thanks for raising this.
