Adults spend more of their waking hours at the workplace than at home, which can lead to stress due to the challenges in the workplace. Some of the biggest challenges in the workplace that are common across industries include low employee engagement, overwhelming workloads, and poor communication, which all result in frustration. There’s a good chance that your company might be going through one or more of these issues, however, Bluescape can be a great tool that can be used to relieve some of these stresses.
Low Employee Engagement
When you start at a new company, you (hopefully) walk into the door, bright-eyed and ready to learn, right? Well after a certain amount of time has passed and you are well seasoned at your company, oftentimes you fall into a habitual day-to-day schedule and you’re back in the position you were in at your last job of being disengaged and bored. According to Psychology Today, 55 percent of all U.S. employees are not engaged at work. They feel like their capabilities aren’t being tapped into and utilized, and therefore, they really don’t have a psychological connection to the organization.
Have you ever been in a position where you can’t say no? You’re not alone. A lot of employees don’t know how to say no when they know they should. Oftentimes, team members are being spread too thin and overwhelmed with their workload. Not only does the meticulous emailing back and forth take up a chunk of the day, but add in hourly long meetings and by the end of the day you haven’t accomplished the work you wanted to do. Due to overwhelming workloads, it’s common that deadlines are not met, which becomes very problematic in the workplace. You are not alone as many Americans face the same problem.
Poor communication leads to miscommunication, causing frustration with your colleagues. Failure to communicate effectively often leads to conflict, which can be very devastating to organizations, causing high turnover rates. Poor communication can create conflict in a number of ways such as uncertainty, limited resources to complete a project efficiently, loss of time, and tension in employees.
