Is Job-Sharing Right for My Business?
Is Job-Sharing Right for My Business?

Job-sharing is a form of employment and schedule that allows two employees to blend their talents, skills, and schedule to fulfill the role of a single full-time employee. This can be designed in many ways. You could assign each person to half of each day, or one person could work three full days a week while the other works two full days. Some job-sharing arrangements schedule overlapping hours each week to keep transitions smooth and communication solid. Deciding how to schedule two part-time employees for a single full-time role will depend on your business needs and the reasons for considering this less-common employment arrangement.

Eliminate and Avoid Employee Burnout

We live in a culture that rewards the workaholic. At times, maybe you’ve been the one going in early, staying late, or putting in extra time on an important project. These efforts for the team seem like good engagement and a normal part of our working lives. Yet the results of too much of this goodness can create burned-out employees.

Symptoms of Burnout

When that reliable, always-says-yes employee starts to experience burn-out, it will be reflected in their behavior. Perhaps a short fuse is more common, or she backs away from projects that were normally a favorite. Worse, productivity may decrease and absenteeism may increase. These are all signs that an employee no longer has the fiery energy they once did.

Word of Mouth Benefits in the Digital Age

Word-of-mouth marketing is like free publicity for your business if you provide a good product or service. Richard Branson called it the best and cheapest form of advertising, but what does it mean in the digital age?

What used to be conversations and recommendations shared among friends has migrated to digital platforms but are really no different than the praises or criticisms we’ve always shared. We tell stories about wonderful service and incredible products. Sure, it could be over lunch with a friend, but it also could manifest itself in an online post that thousands of people see.

Employee Ideas Matter–Conversation Starters to Foster Their Input

Employees are often an untapped resource. If we are not the ones on the front line every day, we sometimes lose touch with daily workplace challenges or customer issues. But our employees live it every day, and we need to acknowledge that openly. Because even if we don’t hear it, they talk about what is good and what needs improvement. We must find a way to extract those ideas, really consider them, and work together to promote the best possible ones.
