Sometimes life is overwhelming. Relationships can go south, a spouse can fall ill, and parenting can be a challenge. When negative events occur in an employee’s personal life, the stress can result not only in missed work, but also result in not being able to concentrate while at work. In fact, according to the article When Trouble at Home Becomes Trouble in the Office, 47% of employees admit that personal issues affect their job performance.
What can an employer do to help workers through difficult times, manage their stress appropriately, and improve "presenteeism" when they’re on the job? Depending on the company, there are many steps they can take to incorporate a positive work/life balance for employees.
The biggest impact that employers can have on their employees is to let them know that resources are available to help them through tough times at home so they can put their best foot forward at work.
