The COVID-19 pandemic forced several employees to work remotely without much time to adjust. Employees who are not used to working from home may find it challenging to balance their professional and personal commitments while weathering this global healthcare crisis.
As employers, here’s what you can do to promote work-life balance among your employees:
Express your expectations clearly and assign work to employees well in advance
Be a little more flexible towards employee needs and focus on the work an employee does rather than the time they spend doing it
Train your managers in remote workforce management, and encourage them to listen to employee concerns and feedback
Make your employees aware of the best work-life balance practices for working remotely
Organize wellness activities regularly in a way that doesn’t clash with your employees’ routine work
Practice work-life balance yourself by not staying online after working hours and taking advantage of time off
