Use your vacation days, encourage the people who work for you to use their vacation days. Putting anything work-related above the need we all have for time away from work, is surely one road to burnout. There are many others, some of which you can’t do anything about by yourself, but this is one you control. And it’s easy enough to do and to allow your people to do.… Read More

The first thing that jumped out at me is that I am very glad to see people taking learning into their own hands instead of waiting for their company to train them. I have always been a big fan of that. Your career, is your career, and you should act that way when it comes to learning new skills.

The second thing I thought was, if 77% of people are ready to learn new skills, as a company, you need to step up and offer opportunities for people to do just that. Very few people are going to be happy sitting and doing the same job for the next 20 years, and rightfully so, since we know that there’s almost no chance the jobs we do now, will still exist in the same way in as little as 5 years.

I get that, but somebody probably wants to at least pay attention to what the employee is doing on the way out. … Read More

There are 4 suggestions in the article below, and I encourage you to check them out and apply them in your workplace, toward everyone, but there’s something just so stereotypical that you can see a direct correlation between employee assistance programs and the number of women who work there. That tells me that we still, in 2021, expect men to just suck it up and not need help.

That attitude is damaging, and in some cases killing, men as we speak. The same ones we work with everyday. Don’t we owe them more?… Read More
