At the end of the day —after we step away from our computers and shut off email and chat notifications — most of us want the same thing. We want our managers to respect the work we do, our ability to do it in the time allowed, and our lives outside of work. As much as we may love and believe in what we do, we all have personal lives, and it’s important to be present with our friends and family (or even our couch) outside of work hours.
Setting work-life boundaries is a fantastic way to ask for respect and show it to your team. When you all trust one another to get your work done, you can enjoy downtime after you clock out. Healthy boundaries lead to a happier, healthier, and more productive workplace for everyone.
