As our society is being increasingly digitalised, we’re expected to always be connected and accessible. This can make it difficult to disconnect from work in time, and when we work from home to a greater extent than ever before, the lack of a clearly defined workplace also blurs the line between work and leisure. In other words, it has never been more difficult to distinguish between work and private life than it is right now. So how can you as an employer help your employees to have a healthy working life and achieve work-life balance?
- Keep track of your employees’ capacity.Conduct regular follow-ups to check how the employees experience their working day. Ask how much time they feel they have and how balanced their job challenges are. Having too little to do can lead to boredom and low motivation, while too much workload can create stress and lead to overtime hours and burnout.
