The most wonderful time of the year?!?

During the holiday season, it’s important to remember that while it can be a joyful time, it can also bring about stress and challenges, especially for your teams. Here are a couple of tips to support your team during this time. 

  1. Prioritize Self-Care: Remind your staff to prioritize self-care. Encourage breaks, proper rest, and time for activities that rejuvenate them. Consider organizing wellness programs or activities to promote mental and physical health.
  2. Work with staff to proactively manage workloads prior to time off: Meet with your staff well in advance of their planned vacation to discuss the status of each of their tasks and develop a plan to complete those tasks prior to their PTO. 
  3. Express Gratitude: Take the time to express gratitude for your team’s hard work and dedication throughout the year. A simple thank-you note, a team lunch, or small tokens of appreciation can go a long way in boosting morale.
  4. Encourage Time Off: Encourage the use of accrued vacation days or time off. Sometimes a break from work can significantly reduce stress and allow employees to recharge.
  5. Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs): If available, promote and encourage the use of Employee Assistance Programs. These programs often provide resources and support for employees dealing with stress, mental health concerns, or personal challenges.

Remember, the holidays can mean different things to different people, so fostering an environment of understanding and support can make a significant difference in how your team navigates this season.
