We hear this so many times: You need to fill your own cup first before you can fill that of others.
As an employer, you want to ensure that your employee’s health and well-being are your top priority. It is also your absolute duty to demonstrate that it is. Why? Your employee’s health and well-being are the real deal-breakers when it comes to preventing long-term sickness, staff turnover, and workplace toxicity.
Everyone knows it. Time off from work plays a key role in mental, emotional, and physical wellness. However, sometimes there can be a degree of shame or tension associated with requesting time off.

With the pressure to hustle and grind in today’s society, rest can oftentimes be both overlooked and underestimated.
