Better work like balance starts from the top down. If striving for better work balance becomes a new year’s resolutions for your office, it is effectively coming from the top down. For some, work finishes at 5:30 pm, but others work is often carried into the evening or weekends in the effort to get things done. Work-life balance starts with a change in attitude, if you see you employees looking burnt out, consider working towards flexible working conditions, more breaks and encourage people to take time off.

Creating a healthy workplace can involve creating an environment where everyone looks after each other and looking after themselves both physically and mentally. There are several ways to promote a healthy living culture at work. Some practical ways to do this are introducing physical work out classes such as team gym sessions, yoga classes or meditation. Exercise is a great team-building activity, but also helps reduce stress and promotes better sleep. When employees feel calm, are building meaningful relationships at work and sleeping better, you will have happier, engaged and motivated employees. Remove all unhealthy snacks from the office and fill the office with better healthy snacks, so your staff have the brain food to keep them on task and productive. An excellent service we use at Hampers With Bite is Snacks With Bite, who offer a healthy snack subscription service to offices around Australia.

Support Professional Development

Encourage staff to come to you with short courses they wish to complete, regularly check in with them throughout the year and develop a career progression ladder.
