Encourage Work/Life Balance
The age of working yourself to death is over. Employees want to be able to leave their work at work. Encourage employees to work their allotted hours and stop. Asking for extra hours, especially last minute, makes for unhappy people. Be careful calling workers outside of normal business hours, it adds stress and resentment - and that leads to burnout.
The key to retention is employee satisfaction. If you’re providing what the employee needs, they’ll want to stay.
Advertise EAP benefits
Most companies offer great EAP benefits that the majority of their employees don’t even realize exist. It’s important to advertise and talk about your EAP benefits often. Many EAPs offer free financial advice, therapy and resources for family members with disabilities. Some even offer counseling to deal with work-related stressors like starting a new job and relocating along with life’s stressors like divorce or the stress of caring for an elderly parent.
If you don’t talk about these benefits, your employees will forget about them. Use your already existing EAP benefits as a preventative measure to employee burnout.
