Going back to work after a long break with loved ones is tough enough, without battling the back to work slump. Here’s how to keep office morale high.
January can be a hard month for many, and a lot of people feel a bit of back to work blues. This can sometimes be too easily dismissed as simply pining for the summer months, but it can be more serious and can begin to affect people’s work lives. The winter blues are in fact something to take note of as an employer.
What causes the winter blues?
There are plenty of contributing factors to people feeling a bit blue over the winter months.
These can include: returning to work after spending a long break with family and loved ones; being a little short of cash after an expensive Christmas season; and the lack of daylight hours and festive lights coming down, among other things.
These things may sound trivial on their own, but they can add up – even returning to a long commute after a week of lie ins can take its toll.
If employees are less happy at work than usual, they may become less productive, which can impact a company’s bottom line. Luckily, there are some things employers can do to battle the blues.
What to look out for
If employees become noticeable lethargic, start being less sociable or more irritable, it could be a case of the winter blues.
Top tips for avoiding it
As with anything, no advice is universal and what works for some employees might not work for others. It is important to get to know staff, and foster an open culture so that mental health issues can be discussed openly.
