Employee Wellness and Productivity in the Workplace During the Holidays

Ways To Promote Employee Wellness During The Holidays

Did you know that 63% of Americans reported feeling too much pressure during the holiday season, according to a 2014 survey by the National Alliance of Mental Illness?

The holiday season is a time for celebration, but it can also be a source of stress, especially for employees working in the retail or customer service industries to meet the season’s demands.

HR leaders can play a key role in fostering a happier work environment by making employees feel happier, less stressed, and more productive during this busy season. Here are a few tips to consider:

  • Offering a flexible work schedule or remote work options can help employees better manage their personal and family commitments during the holidays while still meeting work responsibilities. For businesses experiencing a seasonal rush, such as those in the retail and customer service industries, consider offering additional paid time off that employees can use in January, February, or any slow season.
  • Promoting time off and work-life balance is a healthy practice for employees and is crucial for their overall well-being. Remind your employees to use their paid time off for a much-needed break to recover and restore.
  • Employee incentives and recognition are great motivators for your employees and can boost their performance and productivity. Employees who feel valued and recognized are more likely to stay motivated and engaged.
  • Holiday parties and celebrations can uplift the holiday vibes in the workplace. It doesn’t have to be all work and no play. Organize holiday parties, potlucks, or gift exchanges that can help create a sense of camaraderie among your team.
  • Promoting workplace wellness by implementing programs for the holiday season. These include fitness and healthy eating challenges, stress management workshops, and health and wellness screenings.
