5 Ways to Help Your Team with WFH Burnout
I find myself daily helping leaders manage WFH burnout for themselves and their teams. Here are some tips I often share:
Check in daily to see how they are doing. Just knowing that you care enough to reach out and are there if they need you will help reduce anxiety.
Insist on video cameras, even for the daily check-ins. The personal connection of seeing others is essential in creating openness.
Offer flexible work hours, and demonstrate these yourself.
Do not send emails or messages late in the night. Although flexibility in work hours is vital, an unwritten or self-imposed expectation exists for emails to be returned immediately.
Encourage your team to schedule and communicate when they’re not going to be responsive online.
