It takes more than half of the entire day to spend in a workplace which may be a specific cause of stress in life. It is very natural that people need to perform a lot of tasks in our daily lives. As a result, sometimes there may occur a stage of getting burst out. Being entrepreneurs, the amount of stress to handle is really high. The success of the business to handling the client, the reasons for entrepreneurs experiencing daily stress are many.

Stress in the workplace may develop from many factors like self-performance, co-worker pressure, job roles, appraisals, etc. If you are an employer, it is indispensable for you to take care of your employees and find ways to reduce their stress. By doing so, you'll be able to build better integrity in the workplace. Here are some tips which can help you to reduce the burden of your employees in the workplace.

i. Allow free space

Office places which are too less in space make the employees feel clumsy and suffocated. If employees keep on working on a particular desk continuously for eight hours without getting spaces to move or walk, it creates stress. Make sure that they get enough free spaces to let them breathe freely and take some breaks while working. Changing of desk positions twice in a year can also help you out. 

ii. Arrange physical and mental activities 

Recently many companies are arranging for gyms, Zumba, table tennis, yoga, music classes for the reduction of stress among the employees. These types of physical activities act as stress busters and reduce fatigue, depression, etc. If you don’t have much budget, make some discount rates so that employees can get a membership and spend time in such activities. 

iii. Motivations

The cause for stress among most of the employees in a workplace is a loss of motivation. Motivation keeps a person feel valued and interested in their works. Arrange for weekly one to one discussion sessions where they can speak out about their ideas and problems. Give them feedback about their jobs. If anyone gives some good output,  praise him in front of everybody. But, if he makes mistakes, say him personally. 

iv. Vacations

Arranging weekend tours or small getaways can be an excellent idea to reduce stress among the employees in the workplace. People working in an office when getting a scope for small getaways can enjoy a lot with all their coworkers and managers in a friendly manner. This creates a secure connection too. It is always better to arrange for vacations before the employees urge for it or before they get burnt out. 

v. Benefits and appraisals

Money is the most crucial factor for a drive into work life. Employees are liable to get at least minimum appraisals every year as the market values and prices of materials go on increasing. Besides, companies that provide some benefits like medical, insurance, etc., employees are less likely to quit. You can reduce their stress level through these benefits and appraisals.

Every moment is a fresh beginning

All of us who are working spend a significant amount of time in our workplace. There is no doubt that job life is stressful for most people. Factors like performance evaluations, job standards, etc., contribute more to your work stress. In this case, it becomes increasingly important for you to find out ways to reduce your stress in the workplace.


One of the employer's main responsibilities is to find out ways to provide relief to the employees. In other words, an employer is expected to promote activities that can reduce stress in the workplace.

What should an employer do?


A good employer will always take care of his employees. To reduce work stress, an employer can perform the following activities.


1. Promote physical activity

There are hundreds of studies that have shown that exercise can reduce stress. Therefore, employers should encourage their employees to take a short break and go out for walks. This can be done during the lunch break so that the office hours are not wasted.


2. Value the employees

Your employees are working hard for the progress of your business. Therefore, it becomes your responsibility to praise them. The more you value your employees, the happier they will be.


3. Promote fun activities

Many offices promote fun activities once a week, preferably on a Friday. Fun activities like the musical chair and other group-based games can be a great stress reliever for the employees.


4. Give your employees a break

Working continuously for 5 days in a week is no joke. Sometimes your employees may need a day or two off to refresh their minds. Do not hesitate to approve their leave. A short break from work is healthy.


These are some of the things that can be done to reduce stress in the workplace. If your employees are stress-free, they will perform better, which in return will benefit your company.
