The holidays are officially here, and company culture is in full swing with office parties, gift exchanges, and lots of potluck sharing, but many employees may be feeling the stress of the season.


From anxiety over too much to do in too little time to more severe conditions, employees can experience difficulties this time of year. Here are some signs of holiday stress that may indicate a struggling colleague or employee:

  • Behavioral Changes - becoming withdrawn or unusually irritable

  • Changes in Physical Appearance

  • Lack of Focus

  • Diminished Quality of Work

  • Missed Deadlines

  • Absenteeism

Employers play a critical role in ensuring employees have support and are aware of resources that can help. Here are some ideas:

  • Encourage employees to be attuned to each other, help others and check in if a colleague is going through a difficult period. Co-workers are often in closest proximity and may notice the key signs of stress before managers and HR professionals.

  • Consider expanding schedule flexibility so employees can attend holiday events for the school, family, or religious activities. With family as the central focus for many, your support and encouragement ensure maximum impact on productivity.

  • Provide time for wellness, exercise, and spiritual activities by approving time to come in later or leave earlier. This has a positive impact on employees’ mental health.
