Tip of the Week 15 - Encourage your team to take time off

In the current unpredictable and often stressful situations, managers are struggling to maintain team members’ productivity. Based on survey from 20 different companies ranging from startups to Fortune 30 and universities, located across the U.S., 6 approaches for managers are suggested on how to approach taking time off, essential for re-charging team members motivation and productivity (Nawaz, 2020):

· Change durations- encourage team members to take breaks more often, and completely turn-off work, if possible (without, for example, checking e-mail messages during breaks).

· Activate a team – set up a system for team members to share responsibilities and define their replacements for much needed time off without leaving work undone.

· Demonstrate care- encourage team members to take the time necessary to balance priorities and provide extra flexibility.

· Model behaviors– lead by example and demonstrate to your team that time off is important for the whole company - also managers should take time off.

· Provide clarity- clearly communicate organization’s time-off policy, company’s rules on travel and any other restrictions.

· Redefine vacations- encourage your team to redefine and consider vacations also for focused family time, caregiving and self-care.


What is your recipe stress release? Can you completely turn-off, when on vacation?
