Pressure in companies

Just a few years ago, I presented the issue of company health management (BGM) in companies and stirred the advertising drum. Suppliers had to approach the companies and convince them of the importance of a healthier workplace design and working atmosphere. Today the interest of the companies has grown considerably.

One of the reasons for this development is the increasing level of suffering in companies. Long working hours, increasing time and performance pressure and constant availability cause problems for many employees. High Performer or managers are sometimes absent for a longer period of time without being replaced. But the work still needs to be done.

What companies can do - 7 tips, part 1

This often creates a stress spiral within a company which leads to great psychological and physical stress on all employees.

The consequences are again higher absenteeism and rising costs for the company. A company can counteract this - with the right tips.

1. BMG system can help strengthen the well-being of employees

How can employers counteract these consequences? A comprehensive BGM system can, for example, help to improve the well-being of the employees and thus their performance. Health-promoting offers have a high preventive effect and support employees before it becomes serious.

In case of acute problems, consultations with company doctors or psychologists can also be made. There is currently a high demand for employees. As a work and organizational psychologist, I often arrange pilot projects with companies.

2. Psychological consultations in companies

For example, psychological consultations are offered for half a year to see how they are accepted by the employees. The result is clear: so far, all these pilot projects have been extended due to high demand.

A healthy working environment also makes a great deal. Ergonomically designed workplaces and healthy food on the canteen menu also have a positive effect on the well-being of employees and on discounted sports offers, which also reduce stress levels.

3. Simple measures for stress reduction

Apparently simple measures such as a sensible division of labor and an appropriate one should not be underestimated Communication. Everyone needs a set of goals to work effectively.

However, the specifications should not be determined from above, but decided together with the employee. In this way, under- and excessive demands are avoided and a culture of communication is built up. Job descriptions and work instructions should clear be communicated.

4. Uncertainties lead to uncertainty and frustration

Only those who really know what is expected of him and what tasks he has to fulfill can also perform his work satisfactorily. Uncertainties lead to uncertainty and frustration.

In any case, the feedback on the quality of the work should not fall under the table, since regular feedback is important. Praise makes the soul good and motivated for future tasks.

5. Constructive criticism

Criticism on the other hand, it should be formulated constructively. Because it does not help the employee if he knows that his performance was not good, but he is not told what he did wrong. Overall, good communication is important, no matter how stressful it is.

Because only if there is an open atmosphere in the company, both with each other and with the Executive is communicated, overstrain and overload are recognized at an early stage. Solutions can then be worked out together and workflows optimized.

What workers can do themselves - 7 tips, part 2

Employees can also help themselves to reduce their stress levels. Often it helps to deal with one's own work situation. Stress causes can be identified by this.

Whether the workload, the work task, ambiguities, over- or underloading, inappropriate expectations, the work environment, the management style or the computer system - the point at which it has to be started has already been found.

6. Seek assistance in good time

If you realize that the tasks are growing over your head, do not hesitate to accept help. On the one hand by the colleagues who take a job and on the other hand by the employer, who can arrange a redistribution of tasks or other solutions.

Ultimately, every employee must also learn to set limits. That is to say, not every task that is brought to one without assuming any consideration!

7. Acquiring new skills can help

If you can hardly cope with your work, you should not burden yourself. If it is the fear of overburdening that paralyzes one, the acquisition of new skills can help. Through the occupancy of trainings or trainings, for example on the subject of time management, new skills can be acquired and self-confidence can be strengthened.

This reduces the stress factor for new tasks. Your own expectations can also be stressful. Often this is set too high and cannot be realistically fulfilled. In that case it helps that objectives to reconsider and, if necessary, to correct it a little downwards.
