In addition to our Manager-facing messaging that goes out twice a month, our Customer Success Team shares best practices for Team Members as well. These messages highlight how they can leverage Truvelop to further their own growth and development, while also strengthening their relationships and boosting their engagement. Here’s an excerpt from May’s Team Member Truvelop Tip:
Did you know that May is Mental Health Awareness month? Mental Health in the workplace is more important than ever after reports in 2021 indicated that nearly 80% of workers reported at least one symptom of a mental health condition in the last year. When your mental health takes a hit, then you’re putting yourself at risk for burnout. We’re dedicated to creating the best possible employee experience, so we want to help you avoid this and take care of yourself.
Truvelop Tip: Proactively Reinforce Support
With Truvelop, there are a variety of tools and resources that can help you advocate for yourself by creating balance in the workplace. Stress ebbs and flows. There are always going to be periods of increased workload or responsibilities, but that doesn’t mean that your mental health needs to take a hit. When you take the time to recover intentionally, you can refill your fuel tank, helping you to stay inspired.
Individual Development Plan: Whenever you’re in a period of high-stress, it can be easy to lose sight of your “why.” By completing an Individual Development Plan, you can easily remind yourself of what you’re working towards. Additionally, by indicating your motivators and demotivators, you can work with your Manager to attempt to remove any barriers to success or any components that may be causing unnecessary stress.
Growth Mindset Reflection Guide: When you’re finishing a period of high-stress, it’s important to take the time to reflect on what you achieved. With the Growth Mindset Reflection Guide, you can highlight your learning takeaways and determine what you want to leverage going forward. This is a great way to boost confidence in your abilities and remind yourself of the skills in your toolkit.
Spark: When you’re feeling overwhelmed, it’s important that you communicate with your Manager. Your Manager and team want to support you any way they can, but that starts with being proactive and communicating how they can help. Whether you’re updating your Manager on current projects, or requesting feedback from another Team Member, let your team know that you’ve got a lot on your plate and could use their support. Try to do this earlier rather than later so that you can avoid panic.
