Remote work-life balance: 3 tips for rebalancing

Remote work-life balance: 3 tips for rebalancing

We’ve all noticed it moving to remote work, work-life balance has slipped. Everyone in our HR community is talking about how hard it is to switch off. For themselves. For their people. 

Personally, my office and home have merged into one continuous blur. Sometimes I can’t tell where work ends and home begins. Hours seem to slip through my fingers like grains of sand pouring into one blended bucket, where before it was two. My work-life balance has fallen off the Bosu ball. 

And I’m not alone. 

The real problem is the burnout and fatigue that comes with being on 24/7. It’s much harder to flick the off-switch without the reminder of physically leaving your workplace. So employees are overworking themselves, neglecting their mental health and wellbeing.

 

When it comes to work-life balance, managers lead the way

That’s why we asked Glenn, our Chief Customer Officer and Manager-extraordinaire, for his tips on how to improve work-life balance in this current environment. 

Glenn noticed his team working crazy hours, unable to disconnect and switch off. Work-life balance was slipping and it wasn’t just team members; he himself was suddenly working 24/7, around the clock. Burning out. 

His number one solution? To lead by example. Making a show of logging on and off to your team can be the key to bringing back work-life balance. It’s as simple as announcing on slack/Microsoft teams/chat or wherever you communicate; “I’m finished for the day.”

As a Leader, being deliberate with your work hours and forcing yourself to switch off, publicly, gives permission for your team to do the same. Your team’s work-life balance starts with your own. 

For the other tips and his story, watch our short video below.

 

 

3 takeaways

  1. Help team members set their own hours

We recommend that you sit down with each team member and allow them to come up with their own work schedules. Some may like to start at 6am, some at 9:30 am. 

The point is to find a schedule that works for them. A schedule they will stick to that helps them achieve a healthy work-life balance. Plus, if it’s employee-generated rather than manager mandated, your team is much more likely to follow it. 

 

2. Monitor team chat activity

This may seem a little Big-Brotherish, but with work and the home being one, your team members may not even notice the hours flying by. 

As a leader, you have a responsibility to be aware when team members are logging on at 6 am but not finishing until 7 pm. You’re the guardian of their work-life balance.

Checking your team-chat lets you help intervene and encourage your people to switch off. That might mean a gentle nudge with a reminder, or maybe sitting down with them to unpack why they are working such long hours. 

 

3. Lead by example

Your actions set the tone for your team. Leading by example means making a point of switching off, which gives permission subconsciously for team members to do the same. Glenn ensures to announce every day when he’s finishing, as a reminder for his team members to do the same.
Work-life balance starts are the top, filters down through managers and is felt by team members.
