Eat less, move more. Secretly, it’s really that simple. We often hear about diet trends, new exercise programs, or employee wellness programs, but we’re over complexifying it for no reason. Another simple formula to use for wellness is calories in versus calories out. It’s not entirely that simple, but it’s a good way to monitor your intake. Of course you don’t want your calorie intake to be too high. I’m reminded of a pretty funny sketch on MAD Tv from a few years ago, where they’re making fun of how simple this really is: As leaders, we need to educate all of our employees on the importance of employee wellness, since healthy employees are more productive. Having healthy employees is great for the company’s bottom line as well, since in theory, they should take less days off. You should see reduced absenteeism, which will save you money. You could also argue that you would be saving money from paying someone else overtime, or potentially training costs to replace a s
You need to learn to relax. Stress at work costs companies money, but even more importantly does a lot of physical and mental damage to your body. The truth is, managing stress at work is getting even harder these days, because of how fast technology is advancing. The fact that every time a new email comes in we’re notified in multiple places, makes us that more attached to our work. Some people call for a work-life balance, or work-life integration, but I can’t stress how important it is to disconnect, and come back the next day feeling fresh. I hate to your burst your bubble, but whatever you’re working on, as important as you might think it is, it’s not. Companies need to stop demanding so much from their employees. I’ve seen a lot of managers try and suck every last bit of productivity out of a person, but it’s not smart. After a certain point, you stop being productive. I’ve been saying for years, I’d rather see someone work 4 solid hours, than an 8 hour day fille
I suppose stress is inevitable. As much as we try to avoid it, and try to do things to make us less stressed, the fact of the matter is, we all get a little stressed out every now and then. Removing stress has something I’ve always been personally mindful of, meaning I’ve tried very hard to lower stress, and calm myself down in any stressful situation. Sometimes it’s tough, but overall I feel like I’ve been doing a good job. I try to live as stress free as possible. Stress really is the worst thing for you, and does so much damage to your body. It’s something that I’ve written about before, but I continue to write about it because it’s so important. Like I mentioned, we all get stressed, it’s almost unavoidable, so we need to learn how to better react when stuff like this comes up. The effects of stress can lead to employee burnout, which no one wants, so learning how to deal with these things is critical. Nearly 75% of Americans who responded to an online survey said
The best kind of performance review is no performance review - Aubrey Daniels (The guy who coined the term “performance management”). In a Bloomberg article, he continues to say “Think of a sports team: A coach doesn’t wait until the end of a season to give his players feedback ,”. He’s 100% right. I don’t believe in having a formal annual performance review process. I think they’re flawed, for a few reasons, and I think a much smarter approach is to have a more frequent feedback session. The best part of that Bloomberg article, is when he says: The true goal of the performance review isn’t to help the employee—it’s to help the company. A lot of people won’t tell you this, but they don’t need to document your good performance, just your poor one. That way they have written documentation that’ll help them get rid of you without fear of retribution. That’s sort of a hidden secret of performance reviews, but it’s so ingrained in our society, that I really
I’m very sure that you have a coworker who’s almost like the alter-ego of your boss. Someone who receives all the praises, handles some of the biggest responsibilities in the company and even whom everyone cheers for promotion. Well, this “Model Employee” is more like the “teacher’s pet” in youthful years; the person whom everyone loves to hate except your teacher.
Just a over a year ago I was invited to give a presentation to a group of small business owners. As I was giving my presentation, intricately explaining to them how important is it to take advantage of the online market to increase their customers, one of the audience jetted a response, “Yeah, we are doing just that. We already have a website!” This is a typical pitfall of business owners who knows that there is a huge opportunity online but doesn’t actually know how it works.
