Employee wellbeing is becoming ever more important and it’s widely acknowledged that taking care of your employees means you’ll have a more motivated and more productive workforce.
It’s also well-known that sales can be a high-pressure environment at times, which is why it’s so important to keep an eye on the stress levels of those in your team. Research conducted by Rungway recently found that 40 per cent of UK workers have suffered as a result of high workloads or have felt burnt out in the past year.
In addition, an estimated six million people had sleepless nights as a result of work worries in the last 12 months.
More than one-quarter of employees aged 25 to 34 said that they lose sleep over work every week.
As an employer or sales team leader, there are steps you can take to help prevent your staff suffering from this kind of stress. Daniel Sanchez-Grant, who is responsible for the roll-out of Rungway to businesses, explained communication is the key.
“No one should suffer in silence, but it can also be hard to reach out and many of us feel we can’t help others,” he stated.
With so many people in all kinds of jobs feeling stressed, it’s vital for managers to be aware of the signs and to ensure their team members know they can talk about any worries they have.
Last month, the Limeade Institute offered some advice about how to prevent employee burnout. Top of the list was good communication, but other tips included setting realistic goals and making sure that any roadblocks to your employees’ success are removed.
