Left unchecked, the impact of overwork can not only grind people to a halt, but it can also drastically affect an organization’s culture and bottom line. There are three steps to taming excessive work:
- Notice: Observe patterns of overburden
- Assess: Discern what about the work is excessive
- Address: With employee input, find solutions to address unreasonable demands in the workplace
In these extraordinary times, employees are feeling more overwhelmed than ever. Let them know you feel their pain, and include them in the process of real change.
