Our current working conditions mean we are juggling rapidly changing directives from work while also trying to manage a new normal at home. The average work week lengthened by nearly 5 hours following stay-at-home orders and lockdowns. How do you maintain your work-life balance when for many of us, our work has moved into our home? How do you emotionally clock out when faced with surmounting challenges or, even worse, layoffs? Work-life balance has always been an important topic, but it is more important than ever to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
By participating in this workshop you will:
- Obtain a snapshot of how work habits and communications styles have changed as we have transitioned to virtual work environments
- Review the importance of setting boundaries
- Obtain tips to disconnect from work-life after you’ve “clocked-out”
- Identify strategies on how to create designated work spaces
