Article of the Week
Can You Nudge Your Employees to Work-Life Balance?
Nudges are techniques through which a "default" decision is made to influence the decision an individual will make. While this strategy is applied in many environments, is it also possible for employers to use nudges to improve their staff's work-life balance? These nudges could be encouraging workers to utilize nearby green space for meetings or having time-off requests being approved as a default. The author of this article argues that implementing nudges that make it easier for workers to have the flexibility they need in the workplace can minimize burnout and help staff members remain productive.
