Stress in the workplace can lead to unproductiveness. Relieving stress is necessary for a business to run properly and effectively. Understanding what is causing the work place to be an uncomfortable environment can also help. Learning methods to help relieve the stress upon and between your employees can make your company a more pleasant one to work at.


Discovering the Stressful Situation in theWork Place

As mentioned, discovering the stressful situation in the working environment can greatly reduce stressful matters between co-workers. Some of the situations that might be making your business an unpleasant one to work at are:

  • Employees arguing amongst each other
  • Workers not showing up on time
  • Being under paid
  • Lack of teamwork
  • Gossiping
  • Lack of structure
  • Poor Management
  • Poor Communication
  • Unsanitary conditions
  • Lack of breaks to help employees refresh themselves
  • Overworking employees
  • Poor scheduling

Creating a Stress Free Workplace

Creating a stress free work place begins by doing non-profit stress management activities together in the workplace that includes the management team and the working employees. Some of the activities you can do together are:

  • Planning and having company cookouts, sporting events, casual dinners, or movie nights
  • Taking lunch and dinner breaks for an hour as a team instead of individual breaks
  • Play games that help employees learn to work together so business can be productive
  • Have scheduled team meetings where everyone can share their opinions on how to make the workplace better once per month
  • Have a pizza party day every Friday to show appreciation towards employees
  • Have potluck dinners for employees and their families to help each other get to know what life is like outside of the workplace as well as inside
  • Create a cleaning hour at the end of each week where employees have to clean the workplace together to keep it a tidy happy working environment
  • Create a schedule each week as a team that helps create working hours that are pleasant for everyone
  • Put a bonus pay system in place that rewards employees for achieving goals and helping the company grow

End Notes

Using non-profit activities such as the ones mentioned above can help create a happier environment for employees at your company. You do not just want a company that is about making money and caring on for themselves. You want a company that is family oriented and supports the employees so they will be happy working for you.
