Each employee is important to us. There may be certain issues that they might be too shy or embarrassed to talk about. Here, we step in and help each employee overcome the complications they are facing.
Even if you have problems that do not fall in the above categories, you can feel free to discuss it with us.
Everyone wants to be relevant. Everyone wants to make a difference. Everyone wants to know what they mean. And since most of us spend our waking hours at work, we want to be relevant at work. We want to change the work. We want to know that we matter at work.
As a leader, it is your job to ensure that your people understand their relevance. It is important that you tell your people how they make a difference in work every day. It is up to you to make sure that they know that they matter.
Sometimes people going to work become so regular that it loses its importance for them. It is your job to give it that importance - to remind them why their job is important.
The concept of poor communication strategy is the root cause of high staff turnover. People seek new opportunities when they do not engage with the vision and mission of their current employer. Conversely, the positive effects of good communication at work include improved business performance, higher productivity and better customer service, as well as higher employee retention numbers and lower costs of staff turnover.
While communication starts at the top, it is often a matter of relying on the grape to spread the word to get the word filtered down. Lack of clarity creates discrepancies, and people start taking meaning and discarding wrong information.
Email and intranet are faceless communication channels. Particularly having a difficult message to share, is one of the biggest challenges to effective communication in the workplace, and steps people face to face.
In the period of change, managers can fix on the goal of the change project and listen to their people. Instead of promoting a partnership approach and encouraging cooperation and engagement, people's apprehensions and needs are 'dismissed'. When people feel ignored, they switch off.
Harassment at the workplace is very common. As victims are often upset about what qualifies as harassment - verbal/sexual/different kinds of abuse and what to do when they are being harassed, it often becomes inaccessible and remains an issue.
The "Me Too" movement has raised awareness of sexual harassment and many employers have re-organized and strengthened their policies and procedures. Victims feel more comfortable reporting incidents of harassment.
Termination of aggressive conduct is a condition for continued employment, or Conduct is severe enough or widespread that a reasonable person would be intimidating, hostile or abusive to the workplace. In addition, if harassment of a supervisor results in an apparent change in the employee's salary or status, this conduct will be considered unlawful workplace harassment.
More often than not, there is a problem or two in the workspace that you do not know how to deal with. Whether it is heavy workload or, if you have found something in work that is bothering you, chances are you are not looking for a solution.
With these answers to the most common problems in the workplace, you can expect that there are issues to relax.
Sadly, this problem is so common that many of us would like to accept it. Some people do not get out of the humiliation of the playground, and when done for several months, bullying can turn into something more frightening and painful.
Whether you are directly a victim of workplace bullying or simply witness to it - six out of ten people are asked to get involved in some way or the other - it is important that instead of standing up about it and letting it happen Do something about it, even if it seems like a total and fruitless fight. Report this to HR or an officer of your company, and something will be done about it. If not, external helplines and organizations can take the reins and help you deal with the situation.
Sometimes, workloads and deadlines can get the better of us all. Stress and unhappiness as a result seem inevitable, but can be dealt with. Should you get to the point where everything in the workplace becomes too much to cope with, make sure you talk to colleagues or bosses about it - don't bottle it, because you don't get anywhere.
There are often strategies and procedures that you are able to use in your work to overcome the anxiety and stress of setting deadlines. Supervisors can often help you deal with feeling overwhelmed - they have their wellbeing and enjoyment in your interests, so feel free to contact them and discuss your problems transparently.
Motivation - the desire to work, to complete work from start to finish rather than heritage, to be in a state of disorientation, and to make enough mental effort to succeed - accounts for 40% of the success of team projects. Yet managers are often at a loss as to how to effectively motivate employees without a license. The key is for managers to first identify the cause of an employee's lack of motivation and then implement a targeted strategy.
Carefully assessing the nature of motivational failure - before taking action - is important. Implementing the wrong strategy (say, urging an employee to work harder when the reason is that they are convinced they cannot do so) may actually backfire, causing further stuttering.
Work anxiety refers to the stress caused by work that leads to anxiety, or the effects of an anxiety disorder at work. Either way, work anxiety can have a negative impact and should be addressed to prevent poor outcomes for both employees and organizations.
It is your decision to tell your employer about your anxiety disorder. Some do this because they need housing, others want to educate people about their condition, and some do not want to hide their disease.
The emphasis on work is for everyone, and it is completely normal. But stress that is persistent, irrational and heavy and disrupts daily functioning can indicate an anxiety disorder.
Messy divorce? Cheating Boyfriend? Breakup you just can't get over? They can be part of life, but not part of proper workplace interaction. Recovering the calamities of your relationship suggests that you have a difficult time separating your personal and professional worlds - and this is a career-limiting feature.
The never-ending family issues suggest that you have a difficult time managing your personal life and setting clear boundaries - two qualities directly related to professionalism and productivity. Di, almost everyone deals with a sick child or childcare challenges from time to time. Just make sure that controlling the chaos at home is not part of your daily work schedule.
Sure, we all had a lean month here and there, but you won't get very far from constantly broadcasting money problems at work. In addition to questioning the ability of employers to manage your discipline and budget, chronic funding problems indicate that you are looking for a high-paying job soon.
