Understanding Emotional Intelligence

Psychological needs drive a substantial amount of our behavior at work. Which means when people seem to not respond or act in an appropriate way, it’s not because they are incapable or because they are jerks. It’s probably because they have deeper-level needs that are influencing their behavior.

If you watch anything today, watch this, from Dr. Mark Scullard, Senior Director of Product Innovation at Wiley and author of “The Work of Leaders”:

Want to avoid high turnover? Take a look at your onboarding process.

According to a Jobvite survey, 30% of new employees leave their jobs within the first 90 days.

The cause is reported as one of three things:
– The role doesn’t meet the expectations that have been set
– New hires leave due to a particular incident
– Poor company culture

Putting yourself into your employees’ shoes, it can be highly stressful starting a new job. Add to that the volatility of the current work landscape: economic fluctuations, layoffs, lack of support from leadership, and poor communication.

So how can you adjust and optimize your processes? Start by considering your onboarding. A recent Gallup study found that only 12% of employees strongly agreed that their organization did a great job of onboarding new hires.

Everything DiSC can help you set a foundation and ensure effective team collaboration right from the start. When employees are comfortable speaking up and asking questions from the get-go, they feel like an integral, valued part of the company and are more likely to buy in to organizational objectives, as well as share their ideas.

Lower Employee Stress By Listening

Wiley surveyed 4,500 working professionals from a variety of industries in July 2021 to find out what organizations can do to help employees maintain a healthy balance and lower their stress levels.

58% of people surveyed currently experience the benefit of having regular listening sessions with leaders. When leaders reach out and listen, people report feeling less stressed. Team members want to feel heard and acknowledged for their unique needs and contributions and will, in turn, be more committed to their work. We can all agree it makes a big difference when we feel the leaders in our organization care about what happens to us and invest time into making our work life better. Although listening sessions can be time consuming, they send a clear signal to your employees that you value them.

Leaders, are you prioritizing time to listen?

Wiley research on employee stress

The Policies Every Organization Should Consider to Minimize Employee Stress

For its latest eBook, How to Navigate the Great Resignation, Wiley asked questions about what policies organizations have in place and examined the impact that those policies have on reported stress levels. They discovered some compelling insights about which organizational policies have the biggest impact on lowering employee stress levels.

One of these policies is Additional PTO & Mental Health Days.
32% of people surveyed currently experience this benefit.
The pandemic highlighted mental health in the workforce in a way we’ve never seen before. According to Wiley’s research, providing additional PTO and mental health days had the strongest impact on lowering stress levels for employees at the height of the pandemic and continues to play an important role in lowering stress moving forward, so it’s surprising that only 32% of respondents said their company modified this policy.

This means organizations that actively prioritize, discuss, and cater to its employees’ mental health moving forward will be in a better position to retain and attract top talent.

Reflect on if your organization implemented or updated this policy in the last year. Want more info on the research? Request your free copy of the eBook from us: www.mdr4you.com

Work/Life Imbalance Causes High Stress in Teams

Although the massive transformation in work environments over the last year and a half should have made for better work/life balance in theory, that’s not exactly how it has played out.

Whether it is a full-on return to the office, a hybrid approach, or something entirely different, these constant changes, paired alongside the extreme stress of the last year+, have caused many people to feel a little out of balance.

And as you can imagine, having a bunch of employees who feel as though their work/life balance is off means that your organization is likely suffering the consequences.
