[From Wrike] ๐Ÿ˜ฐ Stress is the New Standard in Todayโ€™s Workplace. Hereโ€™s How to Fix It.

Our recent report, The Stress Epidemic: Employees Are Looking for a Way Out gave us some insight into the effects of stress on workplace productivity and retention. Some 94% of workers surveyed experience stress at work, and nearly a third say their stress is high to unsustainably high.

In light of this, weโ€™ve compiled a short list of the top workplace stressors and how to fix them. What are your strategies for managing stress at work? Let us know in the comments below โคต๏ธ


Stressor #1: Too many tools ๐Ÿ› 

  1. Integrate tools to automatically pass data between them. If you're using Wrike, check out what we integrate with.
  2. Do an application audit and determine which tools you can live without.
  3. Choose a single source of truth to house key project details.

Stressor #2: Drowning in email ๐Ÿ“ฌ

  1. Use Boomerang or Sanebox to help manage email.
  2. Keep content & conversations in context with collaboration tools.
  3. Try chat apps like Slack for quick, real-time communication.

Stressor #3: Unproductive meetings ๐Ÿ—ฃ

  1. Encourage everyone to stand during meetings to keep them short.
  2. Establish a clear agenda and action items for every meeting.
  3. Use a decision tree to determine if you really need to have a meeting.


Do these stressors resonate with you? Or how do you cope with them?

@Andrew Stress is a big area of focus for our team's improvement initiatives.ย  We find one of the biggest stressors is overwhelming number of job requests for our team and setting priorities.ย  To combat that we are working on increasing our marketing "self service" app with updated templates (combats a lot of those flyer and poster requests) as well as working to manage deadline expectations by doing a better job of estimating task duration.ย  I've also been meeting 1:1 with members of our team to set up better Wrike Dashboards based on the kind of work they do as well as providing templates for people to access using the "current user" assignee.

I would love to hear from others how high-producing teams manage stress better!
