Before your employees’ “small” work-related or personal problems become serious and lead to illnesses and lengthy absences from work, you can play a pro-active role as a manager.

If you notice any of the following signs over a lengthy period of time, it could be a good idea to talk to the employee in question:

    • Lack of discipline and low level of resilience 
    • Noticeable drop in productivity and performance fluctuations 
    • Poor concentration, increased error rate, careless mistakes, unreliability, forgetfulness
    • Increased uncertainty when performing tasks at work
    • Frequently asking for help with familiar work, repeatedly checking completed work
    • Self-made and exaggerated pressure on time and deadlines
    • Avoiding certain activities – “procrastination”
    • Withdrawal, uncharacteristic avoidance of contact to colleagues and bosses
    • Excessive sensitivity to criticism
    • Overvaluation of minor problems, unrealistic assessment of their own performance at work and behaviour
    • Mistrust and negative expectations of others, critical attitude towards colleagues and bosses
    • Tension, irritability, aggressive and unpredictable reactions
    • Dejection, depressed, “not really present”
    • Increased number of (short) illnesses, as well as infections
    • Unusual restlessness 
    • Exhaustion
    • Complaints about sleep problems 
    • Physical ailments

How do I start this kind of conversation with my employees? – The managers of our business customers can find some useful information, guidelines and valuable tips in the exclusive log-in section for managers.

Having a conversation with a manager often has a greater effect on employees than a talk with a family member.
