Continuous change and high stress is a common factor in most organizations and workplaces today. All around us, technologies, processes, ideas, structures and methods often change, affecting both individuals and the workplace culture. As the saying goes, the only thing constant is change itself.
Leaders, managers and front-line staff alike must find new ways to engage their resilience to cope with the demands and job stress that can be brought about in ever changing caregiving work environments to ensure employee well-being, engagement and meaningful service delivery to clients, patients, students and/or others who are recipients of care.
“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the ones most responsive to change.” Charles Darwin
In addition to constant change, many healthcare, human and social services, educational, government and non-profit organizations and professionals also need to mitigate the risk of various occupational hazards such as burnout, vicarious trauma and compassion fatigue – all common risks in high care, high stress and at times, high trauma work sectors. Caring for caregivers matters!
Does your organization deal with any of the following challenges: high levels of change, low staff morale, absenteeism, staff turnover, conflict in the workplace, low productivity and/or poor employee engagement?
These can be signs and symptoms of stress, burnout and/or change overwhelm for both individuals and the overall workplace, these challenges are a call to inspired action, learning and growth in any organization. The emotional and mental health of employees in the workplace matters!
Success, productivity, engagement, quality work and employee well-being requires that employees at all levels of the organization have the capacity – including the skills, knowledge and support – to constantly adapt and thrive amidst the steady flow of change, while also taking care to prevent the occupational hazards within high care professions.
