How to overcome the fear of taking time off.pptx

Editor's Notes

  1. I’m here talking about the fear of taking time off as it’s something I’ve experienced – On multiple occasions. Takeaways: -How to build a culture where teams are confident taking time off -Why taking time off is good for business -When to take time off and how to do it First… we’ve got to address culture…
  2. Company culture is a business's attitudes, values, behaviors and goals It defines the way people interact with each other and the way the company makes decisions. 
  3. It should be a psychologically safe environment and fair
  4. Trusting
  5. While ensuring accountability Also transparent With clear visions. Wins are celebrated.
  6. Doesn’t invest in people but things… like ping pong tables
  7. Focus on the overworking element.
  8. A 2021 survey by Namely revealed that workers with unlimited policies take less time off than their counterparts with traditional time-off policies. On average, unlimited PTO-ers only take 13 days off in a year.
  9. Unlimited holiday can also cause more anxiety as people don’t want to be seen as taking the mick. -This goes for holiday, sick, and mat leave – something I spoke about recently to CMI - Chartered Management Institute Research found that working 55 hours or more a week was associated with a 35% higher risk of stroke and a 17% higher risk of dying from heart disease. Taking vacation time is essential to employee survival.
  10. When I started Quibble…
  11. I felt guilt taking time off. So I didn’t – For the first 3 years I took no more that 1 day off… other than bank holidays.
  12. But, we’d started to grow and one of my colleagues literally told me off and told me to have a break!
  13. However, the fear didn’t truly set in until I decided to start a family
  14. Something happened....
  15. My life was about to change completely … worst of all I had to take time off.
  16. Let alone your career. job postings mentioning enhanced parental leave has doubled since last year - according to indeed. Although the number is still small. The number of full-time stay-at-home dads in the UK has leapt by a third since before the pandemic, according to new figures from the Office for National Statistics, compiled by The Guardian. The data shows that one in nine full-time stay-at-home parents are fathers, up from one in 14 in 2019
  17. The pay rate is lower than the minimum wage. Not surprising only 31% of new dads took paternity leave.
  18. The pay rate is lower than the minimum wage.
  19. UK is one of the worst. Less than 4% of eligible families use shared parental leave. You’re screwed if you’re self-employed.
  20. UK is one of the worst. Less than 4% of eligible families use shared parental leave. You’re screwed if you’re self-employed.
  21. UK is one of the worst. Less than 4% of eligible families use shared parental leave. You’re screwed if you’re self-employed.
  22. Communicate with family and friends and clients! – The last one really helped me. Explain any concerns. This is what you can do at work, but what about out of work… Join groups on Facebook – There’s so much support out there. For expecting and new mums I recommend peanut – tinder for mums. Keep up to date with your knowledge and experience
  23. Take time off and communicate it with your team. This helps to create a culture where it is encouraged and celebrated to take time off. Promote balance and flexible work arrangements. Less pressure. Join online communities - Tech women seo community, Facebook Ask for support Speak up about your experiences and fears – it does not make you weak
  24. Communicate with family and friends and clients! – The last one really helped me. Explain any concerns. Clearly communicate your company's policies regarding time off, sick leave, and other types of leave. Make sure that your employees know how much time off they are entitled to, and that they feel confident in taking it without worrying about the consequences. Join groups on Facebook – There’s so much support out there. For expecting and new mums I recommend peanut – tinder for mums. Keep up to date with your knowledge and experience
  25. Have a system in place for covering tasks and responsibilities when someone is on leave. This helps to ensure that the workload is not overwhelming when an employee returns. Have a timeline but prepare to be flexible
  26. You’re a team – everyone should support one another
  27. Last pass or keepass Even give stuff to your partner so you can take a break.
  28. Keep up to date – before, during and after.
  29. Good thing for business as you see who steps up in their absence. Evaluate the team, processes etc
  30. Better relationships
  31. Returning to work can also cause anxiety
  32. It gave me anxiety
  33. 13% think it’s viable on a full-time basis.
  34. Spend time in the office where possible Stay connected – before, during and after Explain your needs – are you still pumping? Understand that your emotions will still be all over the place.
  35. Do you need to do a dummy run or leave a little earlier? – Ask for flexible working. Nurseries charge you for every 10minutes you’re late
  36. Lead by example – no matter your level. No one is perfect.
  37. Don't let imposter syndrome kick in
  38. Don’t push yourself too hard. I started saying yes to everything
  39. Be kind to yourself. You’re still getting settled into a new routine.
