Utilizing healthy work relationships helps manage stress.

Today more than ever organizations are relying on teams to be rapidly assembled to address company goals and needs.  Agility is required, but this may impact the time required to build relationships that create trust and collaboration, ultimately reducing efficiencies and increasing stress.

Relationships take time to build and grow and these “rotating” team members may experience stress and burn out as well as feelings of isolation regardless of working in the office, or remotely.

In the Harvard Business Review, Rob Cross, Karen Dillon, and Martin Reeves shared that an organization they worked with determined that it didn’t make sense for anyone to switch roles or teams in less than a fifteen month period because both the team and the rotating employee would fail to optimize team synergy.

They also shared that it’s important for employees to have a clear understanding of how they add value. What’s their purpose? What roles are essential? What are their priorities? How are they making a difference?

This also needs to be supplemented with positive interactions with colleagues, hopefully on a daily basis. This may include collaboration to accomplish goals, brainstorming and refining ideas for process improvements, and in general creating a relationship of appreciation.

Relationships make a difference! They make employees more engaged and more productive, they increase company loyalty, promote the desire for career growth, and they help prevent burnout while reducing stress.

How are relationships and stress levels in your work environment?
