It’s not easy to manage a team or a department. There are deadlines and target budgets to match, and people can be complicated and at times difficult to work with.
There may be many hats you have to wear, a variety of things you have think about, and let’s face it, many people you have to please.
Being a leader can be stressful; it may seem that you have a ton of weight to bear on a daily basis.
Let us help you out.
Here are 3 simple things you can do to help improve the productivity and satisfaction of your team or department.
1. Organize Healthy Events or Activities
Tired of scheduling boring team dinners? Sharing a meal can be enjoyable, but let’s think outside of the box. How about an educational and rewarding team bonding experience?
Many companies tend to overlook the health and vitality of their employees. A healthy staff is a productive staff, so health promotion initiatives can pay large dividends.
Have you heard your staff complaining about?
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain and stiffness
- Tiredness, fatigue or low energy
- Headaches or migraines
- Back pain
- Muscle aches
Pain and symptom can dampen a person’s mood, motivation, and overall productivity at work. Does your colleague sitting next to you down an aspirin on a daily basis? Medicine may temporarily relieve the pain they are experiencing, but does not deal with the core reason to their pain. In the long run, it may cause their pain to exacerbate and expedite an occupational burnout.

2. Stretch and Exercise as a Team
Sitting in front of your computer, straining your eyes, and being bombarded with continual mental stress can take a toll on your body and mind.
We are not designed to sit at a computer for hours on end, day after day, week after week, year after year. Sitting for long periods of time can damage your posture and weaken your spine.
This stress can lead to a variety of pain and symptoms.
Do some simple stretches as a team before a meeting, or create a notification buzz to remind your team to stand up and stretch at periodic intervals throughout your workday.
Move your body on a regular basis to dissipate muscle tension and to improve blood flow. The more you move, the more energy you’ll feel.
We are confident that if you do the exercises in the health guide, you’ll have less tension in your neck and shoulders and you’ll have more energy to focus on what’s important. Share it with your team. Up your health, up your productivity.
3. Stock Up on the Snacks!
Last but not least, SNACK! This may seem like an odd bit of advice, but we’re not talking about gorging on potato chips, Oreo cookies, or fried prawn crackers.
Focus on nutritious brain food like raw almonds, cashews, Brazil nuts, pumpkin seeds, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats.
Stay away from sweet treats and processed/packaged snacks. Eliminate sweetened beverages like soda, energy drinks, and sweet teas.
Eat real food, not fake food. Snack before you are hungry to maintain a steady level of energy. If your office has a pantry, make sure more healthy alternatives are provided to boost the energy of your team.
Good nutrition will help your brain to function better!
It’s great to be active, stretch and exercise, and eat healthy. But there is one last tip to increasing everyone’s productivity.
