WorkLife Office Annual Conference: Supporting Your Employees As They Manage Their Accountabilities in the Evolving Workplace
This session provides strategies that can be utilized to help employees manage their multiple (and often competing) demands from work and life.
We all live in a web of accountabilities. We have multiple demands that must be prioritized and addressed at work. Added to these, are the accountabilities that stem from our personal lives. The past year and a half has made many employees and employers readjust their priorities. Moreover, our ways of doing work (e.g., remotely or in a hybrid model) have changed in ways that we did not expect, and how we do work continues to evolve. These changes may bring stress. However, they also create an opportunity for employees and their bosses to reinvent how we structure work. This session offers tips that will be useful for both employees and bosses to utilize to (re)structure work, prioritize work, and manage competing demands in a way that is conducive to both the productivity and the long-term wellbeing of employees.
